Bradford 0-1 Morecambe

Bradford 0-1 Morecambe

Bradford   0 - 1   Morecambe

A close-range effort from Paul Mullin was enough to bag all three points for Morecambe at Bradford.

But the home side, who have failed to score in three games, were guilty of wasteful finishing.

Lee Hendrie had already shot over an open goal when an unmarked Mullin turned in Mark Duffy's cross.

Luke Oliver came close to equalising but headed over while Adam Rundle almost doubled the visitors' lead when he hit the woodwork.


Bradford City manager Peter Taylor told BBC Radio Leeds:
"We just seem to buckle if we don't start well. If we start nervously, we don't seem to improve so that to me is where people can't handle the situation at the moment.

"There's no excuses, it wasn't good enough, again don't look like scoring. If you're a goal down, which was a really, really poor goal to have at least some momentum to second half to try and get a goal back but it didn't seem to appear."
