Deacey – 'Best Result of the Season'

Following the 3-1 victory against Gloucester City at a stormy Horsfall Stadium, Bradford (Park Avenue) manager John Deacey was delighted with the result:

“It is the best result of the season. After the efforts on Tuesday, I expected a lull but the conditions were horrendous, and we did well with ten-men.”

Meanwhile, the manager admitted he was forced to withdraw his son, Jordan, with an injury:

“We lost Jordan to a calf injury. It happened after about 30 minutes but (Simon) Lenighan came on to tighten up the midfield, and Chib (Chilaka) did a good job up front.”

Also, Deacey praised the effort of Alex Davidson, as his late goal sealed victory for the Avenue:

“Alex was superb. He played in three different positions and it was a great finish at the end.”
