Basic Information

Date 15th September 2007.
Stadium Valley Parade, Bradford, England
Competition League Two.
Attendance 13,819 (461 away).
Officials Paul Melin.

Posh play with style at Valley Parade, but a defence lapse and missed chances gift Bradford City the 3 points. The visitors create plenty of early opportunities, with the Bantams taking 43 minutes to create their first. Claude Gnakpa is lucky to remain on the pitch following 2 crude challenges, escaping with only a booking. Bradford perform better during the second half and take the lead not long after. Craig Morgan concedes a free-kick and then fails to mark Mark Bower correctly, allowing him to glance home a header unchallenged. Posh create a handful of further chances, but all are wasted. "I really don't know how we lost the game," admits Darren Ferguson.
