Bradford’s League 1 season continued with a win against Port Vale at Valley Parade on Saturday.

A first win of the campaign was secured by Bradford thanks to an injury-time winner from debutant (90) to ensure that the Bantams’ season got up and running in this one-nil win over Port Vale.

These were the match highlights.

There’s still one more fixture to be played too!

Monday 31st August
Coventry v Southend

Looking at these results the stand out ones have to be the wins for Walsall, Rochdale and Burton.

Walsall beating Blackpool isn’t exactly a surprise as such as Blackpool are in disarray aren’t they! The Saddlers are flying at the moment so this win, as said, isn’t a surprise but to come away from Bloomfield Road with a four-nil win is a fine result.

You can also argue that Rochdale actually beating Barnsley isn’t ‘a great result’ however the three-nil scoreline is at Spotland isn’t it!

Finally, Burton’s transition into League 1 is continuing really well. Shrewsbury have struggled this season at the moment but the Brewers could sense back-to-back promotions and if Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s side can keep picking up wins, like this one-nil at Greenhous Meadow you wouldn’t rule it out would you….

Unlike some others this midweek Bradford have a free one as they’re not in JPT action!
