Taylor points to Daley miss

Last updated : 23 October 2010

Bradford manager Peter Taylor was naturally disappointed with his side`s 1-0 defeat at Burton and could not help but feel Omar Daley`s glaring miss had a big bearing on the encounter. Shaun Harrad and James Collins both hit the woodwork before getting on the scoresheet, the former from the penalty spot, while Russell Penn sealed Albion`s first ever win over the Bantams. The game could easily have taken a different path had Daley not fired over the crossbar from eight yards with the goal gaping and the game goalless. Although that said, Burton were more than good value for their victory. Taylor said: "I think in the first half we had the best chance and should have scored. Omar had a tremendous opportunity and that had to be a goal. He couldn't possibly put it over the bar from such a close distance but he did. To me, that would really have helped the situation but instead we found ourselves behind when they got a penalty. "If a defender can't get the ball, you can't then go into a player but that's what the goalkeeper's done and it was a mistake. It was a penalty, I've no complaint in that score, so after playing well we found ourselves a goal down at half-time. "First half I was pleased, but overall I've got to be disappointed because we've conceded three goals and it was down to individual mistakes. That is something that simply can't afford to keep doing and we weren't good enough in the final third either."
