Bradford City reacted in the best possible way to last season’s play-off final disappointment, picking up a 2-1 victory over Blackpool on the opening day of the Sky Bet League One campaign.
Stuart McCall’s side put in a gritty performance again the League One new boys, with Omari Patrick sealing all three-points at Valley Parade with a second-haf strike
Nathaniel Knight-Percival handed Bradford the lead on 41 minutes, before Colin Daniel equalised almost instantly, sending the two sides into half-time at 1-1.
However, Patrick put the Bantams back ahead shortly before the hour mark.
Despite Blackpool piling the pressure on McCall’s side during the closing stages of the game, the Bantams held on to pick up an important three-points to ensure that there was no hangover from last season’s Wembley defeat.
Following Bradford’s victory, here is how supporters reacted…
