Last updated : 12 June 2007 By Steve Hunt
We started brightly, after 18 seconds walkers shot hit the post after Mcgoldrick had set him up. Colbeck then breezed past Cummings his cross was flicked on by Schmacher with his leg, thankful it ran across goal. Ricketts saved well from a Mcgoldrick volley, then moss turned a cross from Colbeck behind. Bradford started to push forward with efforts from Wetherall, Johnson and Schumacher all going close, then maybe the biggest cheer of the day Ashikodi took an air shoot what a laugh, by this Ashikodi was be booed every time he touched the ball, as he was all ways tring to win free kicks by falling over and pretending to be hurt.

h/t 0-0

He then should have scored, as a mix up between Cummings and Gowling let him in after five minutes of second half, he cut inside the box but took to long to shoot and gowling got back to tackle him. AFCB then woke up - an Anderton volley was deflected for a corner, Mcgoldrick had an effort shave the post. The poor Fletcher was replaced by Summerfield and Hayter went up front. Bower then brought down Hayter five yards out side the box. Anderton took a quick free kick Mcgoldrick let fly and a hefty deflection took the ball beyond Ricketts 1-0.

Ashikodi was replaced by Weir Daley who warmed mosses gloves with in minutes of coming on. Johnson and Daley had half chances, before Summerfield was put clear only to waste a real good chance. City wasted another chance. City were getting more and more on top but just when we thought it was over it was 1-1. Johnson crossed from the left, was nodded down by Weatherall, Bower flicked it on and Weir Daley's header went in off of Gwling. That's how it finished. We had a numbed of poor players, Fletcher has to leave the club, Cummings was skinned most of the afternoon by Colbeck, Summerfield can go back to Plymouth. Wilson struggled, Walker forgot he was on the field half the time.

Man Of The Match
A hard choice Gowling was good again but Mcgoldrick gets it, shame we cant sign him a better player than best was.
