Bradford’s League 1 season continued with a point in a draw against Shrewsbury at Valley Parade on Saturday.

A first win of the season, following an opening day defeat against Swindon and a League Cup exit in defeat against York, looked as though this game would be goalless at the break until when Clarke (43) combined with summer signing Davies, who ended the last campaign on loan with Sheffield United from Blackpool, to send the Bantams into the break one-up!

Shrewsbury hit back instantly in the second half with Barnett (46) earning the Shrews a point.

These were the match highlights.

Bradford 1-1 Shrewsbury
Bury 2-2 Swindon
Millwall 0-4 Coventry
Oldham 1-0 Fleetwood

Sunday 16th August
Wigan 0-0 Doncaster

Looking at these results the stand out one was definitely the Coventry win at Millwall, with Blackpool’s misery continuing with Rochdale beating them at Bloomfield Road.

Coventry, who have started the season well, look to have a real goalscorer on their hands with Newcastle teenage loanee striker Armstrong taking his tally up to four-goals for the club in the opening week included two at the Den on Saturday in this four-nil win for the Sky Blues.

All of that after Millwall missed an early penalty chance to take the lead!

Blackpool, even at this stage, look likely to be a stone that continues to sink following Premier League relegation a few years back and Championship relegation last season, just five-years ago they topped the Premier League however it’s looking ominous that a place in League 2 next season already awaits them….

Bradford are back in action this midweek with another home game in League 1 against Gillingham as a first win, at Valley Parade or otherwise, is sought by Parkinson’s side.
