Blues boss impressed by attitude of his side as they snatch a point against Bradford

Paul Sturrock praised the character of his side as they came from 2-0 down to rescue a point at home to Bradford City.

Ryan Cresswell and Gavin Tomlin scored in the final ten minutes to extend Blues’ unbeaten run to 12 games, and Paul was delighted with his side’s attitude.

Speaking after the game, Paul said: “I think it just shows the character of the team because at 2-0 down our heads could have dropped.

“But the spirit we’ve got in the camp is absolutely fantastic and the lads battled really hard to get something.

“At 1-0 we were probably on top and looked like getting an equaliser, but suddenly we were 2-0 down.

“Luke’s really disappointed to have scored the own goal but that’s football and sometimes it goes against you.

“As I say, to come back and get a point does feel like a win from the situation we were in and hopefully we can carry that momentum into the Chesterfield game.”

Sturrock introduced Barry Corr with 20 minutes to go, and the Gaffer believes that change helped Blues get something out of the game.

“Barry came on and he won absolutely everything in the air and we were able to create a lot of chances,” Sturrock said.

“He helped to change the game because it meant we could keep the pressure on by getting the ball into their box.

“I thought Gavin was excellent again and deserved his goal, we certainly deserved something out the game.

“Britt had a couple of half-chances that he couldn’t quite convert and you do start to wonder if it’s your day, but a point was probably a fair result today.”
