Phil Brown on the win over Bradford...

Phil Brown was delighted with the clean sheet just us much as the three points as Blues turned on the style with an impressive 3-0 win over Bradford.

Stuart McCall's Bantams are flying high in the League One standings, and Blues had to be at their best to overcome their threats.

In the end two goals from former Bradford man Will Atkinson and an own goal meant Blues extended their run to six league games unbeaten.

Brown said afterwards it was a hard-fought win.

"It wasn't all one way traffic because Bradford are a good side,"he said. "We played them four or five weeks ago and they were a good side then.

"They showed their strength in depth in terms of the strike force with two different types of strikers in Hiwula and Hanson, but I thought we marshaled them well.

"They had their chances; they had their moments so it wasn't just plain sailing but it was a great clean sheet I've got to say.

"In the first half I thought we allowed them to cross the ball too many times and consequently you're going to get tested with Hanson's height.

"But our goalkeepr stood up to everything that went past Anton [Ferdinand] and Adam [Thompson]; when that was broken my keeper made saves.

"3-0's a fantastic result for us and it keeps our momentum going."
