WORDSWORTH | Bradford point showed character

Blues' goalscorer gives his reaction to the 1-1 draw with Bradford City...

Goalscorer in Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw with Bradford City, Anthony Wordsworth, thought Blues were unlucky not to come away with all three points from West Yorkshire.

The midfielder has returned to the side after a long injury layoff and proved the goalscoring threat he can be, scoring three since his first start against Oxford United at the end of September.

Wordsworth said following the draw that the Blues were somewhat frustrated they couldn’t complete the turnaround after going a goal behind, but is buoyed by the fight they showed.

“It was a good, solid performance,” he said.

“We’re disappointed not to come away with all three points in the end, but a few weeks ago we would have got beat there, so it’s important to come away with a point.

“It shows the character that we’ve got.

“Like I say, it’s disappointing because we could have won the game at the end there.

“It might sound funny that it’s hard to be pleased with a point with the way our away form has been, but I suppose in the end it’s a fair result.

“I’m pleased to get a goal. That’s what I do; try and get in the box.

“A lot of the time you get in there and don’t get the ball, but if you keep trying then one will fall to you, like it did last night.”

Not since the Oxford game have Blues scored more than once, but Wordsworth believes that more goals are just around the corner.

“The important thing is we’re creating chances,” he added.

“We looked a lot more sharper today getting in positions.

“We had a couple of quick free kicks that we were alive to, Coxy’s had a few chances, Nile’s had one, Macca’s had one, so we’re creating chances and I think they [goals] will come for us in the future.”
