Bradford’s League 1 season play-off semi-final second leg ended with a draw against Millwall at the Den on Friday, which meant we lost on aggregate.

The two-goal deficit Bradford had to overturn to beat Millwall proved too much in the end with a one-one draw at the Den ending the promotion hopes.

The Lions will now face Barnsley in the final next weekend after a four-two aggregate win.

Lee Gregory gave Millwall the type of start the wanted, and we couldn’t afford, when he put the Lions ahead just past the half hour mark to leave Bradford with it all to do.

If we were coming back into the match we had to do what Millwall did and come back from behind, and do that before half time with that happening when Jamie Proctor beat Jordan Archer, after the ‘keeper had kept out his first effort.

Proctor had a great chance to put us ahead but not once but twice he declined the chance to shot and the chance was gone with little threat (from either side) offered in the second half with Millwall facing Barnsley on 29th May, the Bantams will look to go again in League 1 next season.

Here’s a round up of the League 1 play-off action from the other games played….

These were the other results.

Thursday 19th May 2016
Walsall 1-3 Barnsley (agg 1-6)

Friday 20th May 2016
Millwall 1-1 Bradford (agg 4-2)

The impressive Barnsley (three-one) form, and goalscoring power, continued as Walsall were brushed aside (six-one on aggregate) to put them into the Wembley final next weekend.

Do they go into this as favourites? Many could think so….

Although Millwall (one-one) will have thoughts to the contrary following a draw at the Den with Bradford, which saw then take the advantage from the first leg forward to move closer to an instant Championship return.
