REACTION Pep on 2-2 draw

U's left frustrated against Bradford

13 September 2017

Oxford United shared the points with Bradford City last night in a pulsating 2-2 draw that was high on entertainment and saw late drama.

 Joe Rothwell’s 86th minute goal seemed to have capped a great comeback from the U’s who trailed 1-0 at half time but levelled through Wes Thomas before Rothwell’s clever finish made it 2-1. However Bantams skipper Romain Vincelot powered home an injury time equaliser to leave United boss Pep Clotet admitting  “It was frustrating”

 “We showed a lot of character to come back from a goal down against a really strong Bradford side who made the final of the play-offs last season” Clotet told iFollow. “But the players showed the faith in themselves and in the football they were able to produce to manage to get into a winning position. It’s frustrating not to get the three points in the end but at the same time there are so many positives that make that point really good.

 “We have shown that we are very competitive against sides who will be up there at the top of the table. That’s very encouraging.

 “We are a bit down because we didn’t hold on to our lead but at the same time we know it is just the start of what we are building here and the players know they can get better and better.”
