NATHAN JONES ON THE WIN OVER BRADFORD CITY

27 November 2018

Town boss Nathan Jones sung his side's praises after they put four past Bradford City without reply at Kenilworth Road this evening in Sky Bet League One.

The Hatters controlled the first half, but took a while to unlock the Bantams defence, but after James Justin scored from close range the floodgates opened and Elliot Lee netted twice more before the half-time whistle.

The second half saw the visitors much improved and they tested the Town with a number of shots from range, before Harry Cornick grabbed a deserved goal late on to seal a brilliant win.

Jones said: "I am thoroughly delighted, I thought first half we were outstanding, I really did. Against a real difficult opposition, we keep saying it, but their league position is a little bit false. Some of the players they have got are fantastic for this level and we knew they'd be a dangerous side.

"We watched them and thought they would match us up with a diamond or sit back with a back five like they did against Peterborough and really deny space, but I thought the way we played first half was wonderful, it really was a wonderful performance – the way we moved it and we could have scored more and then affectively once you've got three goals the game is dead.

"Second half they came out and had a right go to be fair to them and we looked a little bit lacklustre, but we were always a real threat on the break and we finished strongly, so I am pleased, I am very pleased."
