Happy with a point, pulling my hair out how we still boot it up field when there's nobody to get it. We looked half decent when we played it on the floor. Didn't think stead played that bad as a lone striker, apparently Steve Evans is being a right "let's say idiot" on his interview, can't wait to get home and watch it

I thought that was a very good performance. Rotherham were always going to be on the front foot, but I thought we defended brilliantly. Bennett was excellent in my eyes, and was a threat all match. Liked how their defender tapped in on the head at the end when he miss kicked it out of play. He had put everything into that game, especially second half. Jones was also quality, never stopped running and getting stuck in where it hurt. Was a bit critical of Stead first half but second half was very good. Overall a fantastic result brought on by sheer determination and willingness to fight for Bradford City. Great support also for a great football club. Mr Parkinson got one over them tonight. Brentford will be very thankful. CTID.

A very good and probably generally unexpected point which edges City a bit closer to safety. Now, after three above average away performances, we have a week to see if the Bantams complete the 'symmetry' of three poor home efforts-let's hope NOT!!

Reach and Bennett showed some good form but both have also revealed their flaws more recently-Reach doesn't track back/Bennett can seem lacking in confidence in his own ability. Perhaps these two would benefit from signing for City or a team like City. They're not the 'finished article' yet and would be fortunate to get a permanent team place at a higher level.

Well to all-mgr. players fans!

That is a great result considering everything, concerned that we have no teeth upfront though!
That is 3 consecutive clean sheets away from home, last 3 home games conceded 6'! And against lower teams in the table.
I think we should be safe now, but would like us to get a few more to be sure to be sure.
We need a major overall this close season, we got up last year, and now near enough staying up but other squads will improve and teams coming up and down are no pushovers, it will be a harder more competive season in league 1 in 2014/15, and we dont want to be in the basement again.....so come on PP, you have a long hard summer coming up.

Great result against a better team. Re next season, not sure about Dolan, not sure he is any better than we have! Would sign Bennett though.

While it might not have been one for the purists, and we have rode our luck at times, it was a real dogged display.

Back 4 solid, and I also thought Stead did pretty well, as it can often be a thankless task up front on your own.

If we are to employ a 4-5-1 on occasions, then we have got to learn to take advantage of the extra man in midfield, working little triangles and creating the space.

Overall though, an excellent point, and one you would've certainly taken before the game.
