The league one season move into it’s penultimate round over the weekend with Bradford in action at home for the last time in the current campaign.

Bradford marker the 29th anniversary of the Valley Parade fire with a fitting 2-1 win over Crawley Town at Valley Parade on Saturday afternoon.

Phil Parkinson knew the importance of the afternoon and spoke about the Valley Parade fire in his team talk with him wanting the players to use this as inspiration to go and get the win.

The Bradford boss told the media: ‘This is a big day for the club because of the minute’s silence.

‘I mentioned that in the team talk – that we were representing a lot of people and that it was important to do them justice with the way we play.’

Aaron Mclean, who wasn’t meant to start the game, put Bradford ahead before Crawley equalised through Jamie Proctor before Garry Thompson came off the bench to score the winner five-minutes from time.

Parkinson conceded it was a typical ‘end of season’ game but was happy to end with a win nevertheless especially on such an important day.

He added: ‘It was inevitable that there was a bit of an end-of-season feel about it.

‘Crawley have had a lot of games in a short space of time and we have been under pressure to keep our League One status – we were pleased to get a win.’
