We barely deserved point - McCall

Stuart McCall
McCall's side are third in the League Two table

Bradford City manager Stuart McCall felt his side were fortunate to get a point from Saturday's 3-3 draw against Barnet at Valley Parade.

Bradford held the lead three times but were pegged back on each occasion.

Former Scotland midfielder McCall told BBC Radio Leeds: "It was a point that we barely deserved - our second-half performance wasn't good enough.

"I didn't expect us to give two joke goals away like we did in the first half - both goals were shocking goals."

"We said before the game that Barnet do concede a lot of goals but they are always a threat.

"They scored four at Rotherham and two at Shrewsbury and we knew they would pose a threat going forward.

"The first one was a bad back-pass that Rhys Evans should have cleared rather than dribbling.

"For the second one, [Matt] Clarke out wide got too tight and let the boy roll him - they're two really poor defensive goals to lose which gives them belief.

"We scored three really good goals but second half we didn't perform and they just pressed and pressed and definitely deserved the equaliser so it was a point we barely deserved."
