McCall’s City quick to cap­i­talise on red card

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -


BRAD­FORD CITY man­ager Stuart McCall la­belled his side’s thrash­ing of MK Dons as a “ma­ture per­for­mance”.

The Ban­tams put four past 10-man Dons to move within touch­ing dis­tance of the au­to­matic pro­mo­tion spots.

McCall’s men took full ad­van­tage of Aaron Tshi­bola’s fifth-minute send­ing-off for haul­ing down Jake Reeves.

Char­lie Wyke bagged a brace with Ro­main Vincelot and Paul Tay­lor also scor­ing.

Ethan Ebanks-Lan­dall net­ted for the hosts be­fore the break.

McCall beamed: “It was a very ma­ture per­for­mance. The re­sult is ob­vi­ously the pleas­ing thing, but it’s al­ways pleas­ing when you get the per­for­mance as well.

“Them go­ing down to 10 men helped us, but we couldn’t have done more than we did.”

De­fender Vincelot struck his fourth goal of the sea­son six min­utes af­ter the red card when he nod­ded home from Tony McMa­hon’s cor­ner. Wyke soon added a sec­ond as his de­flected ef­fort nes­tled in the bot­tom cor­ner.

The vis­i­tors kept their foot on the gas by test­ing Lee Ni­cholls but, in first-half stop­page-time, Ebanks-Lan­dall turned Gboly Ariy­ibi’s cross past Colin Doyle.

Af­ter the break, Wyke pounced for his sixth goal of the sea­son with a sim­ple tap-in.

Doyle was then called into ac­tion on three dif­fer­ent oc­ca­sions to keep out Os­man Sow, Ed Up­son and Chuks Aneke.

Tay­lor opened his ac­count when he latched on to a lovely weighted pass over the top be­fore fir­ing home four min­utes af­ter com­ing on.
