Nahki Wells pledged his future to City after being named man-of-the-match and proving Northampton’s nemesis again with a goal in today’s stunning play-off final win.

The talented striker from Bermuda grabbed his 26th goal of the season in the first half to put Phil Parkinson’s men 3-0 up after earlier headers from James Hanson and Rory McArdle.

It was the perfect end to an incredible campaign which has seen the Bantams play 64 games before winning their first promotion in 14 years.

Wells has attracted admiring glances a number of Championship clubs but, when asked about his commitment to City, he said: “When you’re doing well you grab the attention but without these players around me it wouldn’t be possible.

“I’m contracted to Bradford, so I’ll be playing in League One next season.”

Wells was ice cool at the end as City’s players celebrated in delirious fashion.

After scoring his seventh goal in six appearances against Northampton, he added: “How will we celebrate tonight? I have no idea until we get in the dressing room.

“It’s just a dream come true because we had worked so hard to get here.

“It’s a big game and we had to come into it confident but not arrogant.

“We had played 64 games and to finish it off in this fashion is unbelievable.”
