Bradford City v Exeter City

Monday, 7th April, 1969
Football League
Bradford City (away), lost 0-1

We gave a better all-round display in this game than we had done at Col chester and were unlucky to lose by the only goal scored, more especially as this was obtained with a penalty.

Our defence was always sound under pressure and the attack was much livelier than it had been in the previous game, but, unfortunately, we fell short of the required standard when it came to finish ing and a couple of good chances were allowed to slip.

Bradford City's winner was scored by Charlie Rackstraw in the 55th minute from the penalty spot after he had been brought down.

Team-Shearing; Smyth, Blain; Parker, Newman, Balson; Pleat, Curtis, Wingate. Binney, Mitten.
