Bradford look to play-offs

MIDFIELD player, Paul Reid still believes Bradford City, who play Exeter at home tonight, can win a Barclays Football League play-off place despite their miserable run of form. Reid, one of Bradford's best. players in the 2-1 home defeat against Hull on Saturday, said: "We are still only four points off the sixth placed club and if we can put a run of three or four wins together everything is still possible. "Stoke are as good as promoted, but we are fighting for fifth or sixth place and anything is possible."

Reid is hoping Bradford can start their revival against Exeter at Valley Parade tonight and end a run of five home matches without a win.

A Scott Daniels goal was a mere token when Exeter City went 3-1 down against Bradford City at Valley Parade. It came two minutes before time from close range following a Scott Hiley free-kick, but by then Bradford has the game sewn up with goals from former Argyle striker (21 minutes), Steve Torpey (39) and Lee Duxbury (58). 

Exeter reject cash offers

EXETER CITY have rejected bids from Birmingham City for full-back Scott Hiley and Bristol City for goalkeeper Kevin Miller. The St James Park club say the cash offered by the two First Division strugglers was acceptable, but that Birmingham and Bristol were reluctant to part with the players manager Alan Ball also wanted as part of the deals. In Bristol City's case, it included 20-year old striker Jim McIntyre, currently on loan to Exeter and included in tonight's Division Two game against Bradford City at Valley Parade.
