Steve Parkin: Surprised by decision

Davies will now miss the first game of the Bantams' play-off campaign.

"Andy D'Urso is a very experienced referee and he was stood very close to the incident," assistant manager Parkin said.

"Not for one minute did he look as though he was going to give a foul but he has then got involved with his own linesman who was further away. We were disappointed with that.

"Andrew was then told in no uncertain terms at half-time that he had to be whiter than white and not to get involved in anything but he has then had a silly sending off which means he will miss one of the games next week which has put a slight cloud over the day."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
