Who gets your vote after last night’s game?

After two games without Men of the Match the Bantams returned to form last night against the most negative side to visit Valley Parade this season.

Make no mistake, the final scoreline of 1-0 flattered the visitors who gave Rhys Evans very little to do all night long and ensured a welcome opportunity for the Bradford City defence to put the nightmarish games of the past week behind them.

This was a game all about the midfield duo of Dean Furman and Nicky Law. Their tireless running, inventive play and awareness of those around them ensured that they stood head and shoulders above the others on the pitch.

The sponsors voted for Nicky Law, no doubt because of the number of times he sliced open the Macclesfield defence with surging runs but my vote would go to Dean Furman. His goal was not only the match winning difference between the two sides but his decision making was exceptional all night long. The ease with which he started, continued and finished the move that led to the goal was what we had been waiting all night for.

But perhaps you think someone else deserves the nod? Cast your vote now…

The standings currently have Dean Furman comfortably ahead of his team mates having taken 7 awards to Rhys Evans’ 4.5…
