Bradford   0 - 1   Chesterfield

Bradford v Chesterfield

Bradford 0 1 Chesterfield

Chesterfield continued to display their promotion credentials with a hard-fought win at Bradford.

Deane Smalley scored the game's only goal, firing into the top corner after Kieran Djilali's run and pass.

The pair nearly combined again soon after, with Djilali crossing but Smalley heading wide.

Bradford's went close to hitting back when two of their substitutes combined, but Jake Speight blasted over from James Hanson's flick-on.


Chesterfield boss John Sheridan told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"I was very pleased with the way we played, I think Bradford have got in the game probably in the last 10 minutes, put balls in there, Hansen's always a threat with his aerial ability.

"Obviously again we've scored the first goal and then it gives you belief that you've got something to hold onto and that's what we've done but I think we deserved to win the game.

"The game could have been out of sight with the chances that we had in the first half, but to win the game 1-0, keep a clean sheet and that's all we can ask for. Full credit to the players for the way they've responded for the last two games.

Bradford City manager Peter Taylor told BBC Radio Leeds:
"I didn't think we deserved to be one down at half time, I thought we played sensibly well.

"I think we know we can defend better than that but the last 20 minutes I thought we deserved to get something.

"The results have not been good enough so it means the players are not as confident as they should be."
