Their View: Bristol Rovers 1-1 City

Another frustrating draw for City but high praise from Bristol Rovers fans about the way we went about it.

Attendance: 9,043 (715)

“For me the best team that have played at the Mem this season for possession of the football and for getting the ball into wide positions. Perhaps lacking the finishing power to be automatically promoted but Law is really a class act in the middle of the park and whilst first half on actual chances we should have been leading they certainly took the honours in the second half…”

“Definitely a point gained. Bradford were a quality side and we knew that before the game so to get a point against a top 6 team who had many chances to win in the second half was good.”

“I rarely criticise referees but yesterday he was awful. As others have said got too much wrong and was very one sided towards Bradford.”

“Overall it was a point gained and we could have pinched it. Yes Bradford were the better team but for all their talent and neat passing if I was a fan and had made the long journey south I would have been upset that they settled for a point when they didn’t seem to have the determination to win. Thankfully!!”

“The ref was one of the worst referees I’ve ever seen, he was so one sided.”

“I thought the Referee was poor, an example being penalising our defenders for challenges he allowed theirs to get away with. Luke James was constantly being battered by the giant marking him.”

“Definitely a point gained against a good side.”

“one of the best teams I have seen at the Mem recently”

“Bradford played a exceptional passing game with Law their number 4 a pivotal figure. Shows we are short of that bit of quality needed at this level.”

“Decent and strong. Nicky Law was pure quality and what we miss in our midfield to compete at the top.”

“Not a bad result, that, against a top side in this division.”

“Seems it was a point gained rather than two points dropped”

“Very happy with a point against a very good team”

“Too often at home we’ve won despite making the opposition look better than they actually were…today I thought we gave a good team a good game that could have gone either way”

“Bradford were easily the best team i have seen at the mem this season,only thing they lack is a goalscorer.”

“They were good I thought their number 4 in particular was execellent and ran the game for them.”

“Great game of proper football today. Bradford best team we’ve seen at the Mem for a very long time (barring cup and friendlies) and we gave them a good test.”

“Very good point against a decent team.”

“Decent point Bradford are a good side impressed with their 4 Nicky Law, number 6 and 7”

“That was a good point in the end because Bradford were a good team and should have won. Their No. 4 was the best player on field”

“Bradford were a good footballing side that had us using long ball just to survive at times and to relieve the pressure and LJ will not thrive playing like that. Despite being out played at times our determination nearly won it and if they had put in as much effort as we did they would have won easily!”

Manager’s View – Darrell Clarke

“It is probably the first time in a long while that our goalkeeper has helped to earn us a point.”

“We started the game brightly. We knew what Bradford would be all about. The reason they have only lost four games this season is because they are a good side.”
