Gillingham 0-0 Bradford

Gillingham were forced to settle for a point against struggling Bradford.

The Gills came close to taking an early lead when Jo Kuffour's deflected acrobatic effort hit the woodwork.

James Hanson forced a good save from home keeper Ross Flitney before wastefully thumping the rebound over the crossbar.

Bantams sub Nahki Wells had his effort chalked off for offisde before the visitors survived late pressure to claim a point.


Gillingham manager Andy Hessenthaler told BBC Radio Kent:

"We didn't start at all well, didn't get going. The only real good spell we had was a 10-minute spell in the latter part of the first half.

"We didn't earn the right to play. The ball spent too much time in the air and we have to give Bradford a lot of credit as well.

"The good thing is we didn't get beat. We kept the unbeaten run going, we've gone up a place but we're disappointed with the performance."

Bradford City manager Phil Parkinson told BBC Radio Leeds:

"This job - it's a massive challenge probably bigger than I thought. You've got to keep fighting in this game because no-one is going to feel sorry for you.

"The only people that can turn it round yourselves and the group of players you are working with.

"I've just said to the team I don't want to have to keep on responding, I want to build on performances and that's what we've got to do."
