Bradford’s 2014/15 season go underway with a late winner at home, having twice been pegged back….

Victory looked likely to be Bradford’s against Coventry City on Saturday until a last minute striker made it two-two, but Hanson wasn’t having that as he headed home his second to secure a three-two win.

A Johnson goal, his second of the game, had made it two-two in the last minute and this left it looking as though the game would end in a draw but the late winner gained us the points that Phil Parkinson thought we deserved.

Parkinson said: ‘I thought we deserved the win although it looked like a draw after Reda Johnson’s equaliser.’

Hanson had given us the lead before Johnson send the sides into the half time break level at one-one. Early in the second half a Sheehan penalty restored the Bantams’ lead before Johnson again levelled it up.

A second from Hanson secured the points.

The boss admitted that he was ‘concerned’ by the late equaliser but even had the game ended in a draw he felt that it ‘put down a marker’ to the fans as to how he wants us to play this season.

Parkinson was more than happy with how his side played but he isn’t getting carried away.

He added: ‘Obviously, I was concerned at Coventry’s late equaliser, but if we had had to settle for a point we would have put down a marker in front of our own fans as how we want to play – three at the back, rolling the ball out, being positive, closing down and so on.

‘The lads showed they understand what has been asked of them, but it was the way they implemented the plans that pleased me.

‘The first three points of the season are important and we got them and it gives us something to build on, but we are not getting carried away.’
