Deacey: 'A Magnificent Game'

Following the 2-2 draw against Altrincham, the Avenue manager John Deacey spoke to the official website.

The Bradford boss was quick to praise both sides for their effort on Wednesday:

‘It was a magnificent game of football in difficult conditions.’

Meanwhile, Deacey felt the home side deserved more than a point:

‘I felt we deserved to win. We conceded two poor goals, especially with the goal from a corner. I know people think I give Jordan a lot of accolades, but not only his goal, his performance was superb. Also, Michael Duckworth was excellent, Richard Marshall continues to score goals, Jamie Jackson had a better second half too.’

Finally, Deacey admits he was disappointed to not pick up a victory, but could not fault the effort of his squad:

‘What can you say after a performance like that? Today, I’ve had 12 fit players, but they have been superb. I’m upset for the right reasons and for the players because they tried their best today.’
