Gareth Evans – ticked things over in midfield but the Bantams needed a bit more at times 6

Elliot Watt – caught in possession once but that apart showed quality on the ball 7

Callum Cooke – unable to make the most of his interchanges with the other attacking players 6

Jamie Walker – made some good runs from deep in the first half without taking his chances when he got there, less prominent in the second 7

Andy Cook – a bull of a centre-forward, he gave Bradford another option 8

Substitutes:

Charles Vernam (for Cooke, 60) – provided important width and a does of ingenuity 6

Dion Pereira (for Evans, 60) – had he been on from the start rather than half an hour, he would have walked the man of the match award 7

Caolan Lavery (for Walker, 78) – unable to have much impact in his short time on the field 6
