Who gets your nod from the draw with Shrewsbury Town that promised so much at half time but ended up delivering a frustrating afternoon?

Before the game I would have taken a hard fought point but at the final whistle there was the feeling that it could, and possibly should, have been all three.

It’s rare that the Bantams have played so well without finding the net but after the four goals against Morecambe we came back to earth as Bradford City found it impossible to break down the stubborn resistance of a well marshalled Shrewsbury Town defence.

For all the industry of Nicky Law and Paul McLaren or the pace of Steve Jones and Omar Daley there weren’t a huge number of chances presented to Michael Boulding and Barry Conlon. At the back Graeme Lee had Grant Holt in his pocket all afternoon but the defensive unit as a whole was once again impressive with special mention for Luke O’Brien who didn’t put a foot wrong.

But who do you think is worthy of the Vital Bradford Man of the Match award?

Last week’s recipient was Nicky Law and, after picking up the sponsor’s vote again he’s got to be favourite to win your approval once again.
