BRADFORD Town manager Danny Greaves was pleased to see his side maintain their unbeaten start in the Toolstation League Premier Division with a 1-1 draw at home to Odd Down.

However, things did not go all the hosts’ way in the contest at Trowbridge Road, with the visitors setting up to stifle their opponents.

It was a tactic that worked as they took the lead in the 63rd minute when Ben White played in Kye Simpson.

However, with a couple of minutes left on the clock, a cross from the right was met by Sam Jordan’s head and took a deflection to find the back of the net, a stroke of luck Greaves felt his side deserved on the day as they moved to seven games without defeat.

“Obviously, you want to go unbeaten for as long as possible, it breeds confidence in the team, so we’re delighted to keep that intact,” he said.

“We left it late to snatch a point but on reflection of the game, both teams would probably say it was a fair result.

“They came with a game plan to frustrate us and get us on the counter attack and I think you have got to give opposition teams credit sometimes, it worked.

“We didn’t create as many chances as we would normally do and they did look dangerous on the break.

“With them going a goal up, they were then even more determined to keep a clean sheet.

“We just upped the intensity in the last 10 to 20 minutes and created more chances and eventually got the goal that I think we deserved on the day.”

Bradford now travel to Wells City this weekend, who are struggling for form early on this campaign.

Having only picked up one win from their opening eight games and heading into the game on the back of seven-straight defeats in all competitions, Greaves is anticipating another side who will set up to be hard to break down, but knows they must overcome such opposition to achieve their end of season target.

“We were happy with the point at the weekend and hopefully we can move on and pick up three at the weekend and then it turns into a very good point,” he added.

“I’m expecting another similar game. We are going away to their place and they have struggled of late, with a new squad there under a new manager.

“Given their recent results, I’m expecting them to set up similar to Odd Down and for us, it’s just about being patient and taking our chances when they come.

“No disrespect to Wells, but if we have got aspirations of finishing in that top part of the table, it’s a game we have got to go and take something from.”
