Manager Lee Johnson was delighted at full time in our one nil victory over Bradford because not only does it mean we are through to the second round of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy, it also means we have registered our second win of the season and back to back victories so far this year.

Speaking to the Official Site the gaffer couldn’t have been more pleased to see late substitute Jordan Bove score his first professional goal to seal us the game.

The 18 year old found the net five minutes after coming on to the pitch in the second half, and he was certainly the hero of the night with his 88th minute winner.

‘I’m delighted for young Jordan because it’s probably come out the blue for him. He probably wasn’t expecting to get on the bench, let alone play but he is a natural goalscorer and he’s proven that in the youth team.’

Johnson goes on to say the only question surrounding him is simply can he make the step up, but he’s showing the right energy and having now got his goal, the confidence that will bring should certainly keep him pointed in the right direction as he continues to develop as a player.

‘I thought he pressed well and got himself in great positions so that’s a good habit to have if things fall for you.’

As for the game overall, Johnson was obviously delighted with the win and the clean sheet because those are good habits to have even if it is stating the obvious.

‘I was really pleased with the back four and delighted to go through. It was a tough game and a real slog. Both sides were committed and with the likes of Forte and Poleon to come in, we will have that pace to stretch teams.’
