PARKY PLEASED WITH BANTAMS WIN
Phil Parkinson was delighted with Bradford's 2-0 home win over Southend on Friday which eased his side's League Two relegation worries.
James Hanson's 13th goal of the season and Craig Fagan's penalty, after Sean Clohessy was sent off for tripping Nahki Wells at Valley Parade, put another dent in Southend's promotion hopes.
To compound Southend's misery, they finished with nine men after substitute Elliot Benyon was red-carded when appeared to kick Bradford left-back Rob Kozluk.
Parkinson said: "I am really pleased - it was a professional and disciplined performance from the first minute to the last. We were cool and calm and excellent.
"We had chances to score again after our second goal, but goal difference is not an issue for us - it is about points on the board.
"We will enjoy our victory, but quickly our minds will turn to our game at Shrewsbury on Monday. We will go there full of confidence and if we can turn on the same level of performance we will be a difficult team to beat."
