Vote now for your Man of the Match against Wycombe.

The Bantams produced an accomplished display of football to see off one-time League leaders yesterday afternoon in a good team performance.

But who do you think is deserving of being singled out?

Is it match winner Steve Jones who contributed more than just the winning goal to respond to our criticism from last week? Or his mate on the opposite wing Omar Daley who had a very good game driving at the opposition as well as, more often than not, playing someone else in with an intelligent ball.

Or one of the defence who kept a clean sheet? Rhys Evans had to be sharp to make a couple of saves, Matt Clarke and Zesh Rehman marshalled JP Pittman and Matt Harrold well enough whilst Paul Arnison and Luke O’Brien had very good games in both defence and attack.

Perhaps Boulding and Thorne? Neither got on the score sheet but both kept the Wycombe defence busy allowing the rest of the team time and space.

And for no one was this more obvious than the midfield axis of Dean Furman and Nicky Law. These two worked tirelessly to harry the opposition and pressure them into giving up possession. Deano got the sponsor’s nod and whilst there’s not much between them for clearing the ball off the line I think he gets mine too.

Last week’s man of the match was Michael Boulding who took 37% of your votes and is the first time that the Summer arrival has been given the accolade of Vital Bradford Man of the Match.
