Bradford City boss Colin Todd spoke to the Telegraph and Argus yesterday evening as he gave his thoughts on the Bantams' 1-0 defeat against United. Todd talking about the need for his side to start doing better in front of goal :

"Our approach play was very good but games of football are won and lost in the 18-yard box and we haven't had that killer instinct. For the first time we've moved the ball very well but we didn't carve out a lot of chances, which was our downfall. We're not producing when we're in good positions or not pulling the trigger when we should be.

"At the moment I believe Dean Windass should be doing better in terms of trying to get a goal himself rather than teeing things up for other people. But I thought JJ (Jermaine Johnson) did very well up front and deserved a goal when he hit the bar.

"Another 1-0 defeat is a kick in the teeth for the players and you've got to feel sorry for the back four and midfield. You can see the approach play is very good but there's no end product to show for it. You can't hide the fact that it has been a bitterly disappointing Christmas period but we just have to get on with it."

Meanwhile, veteran Bantams striker Dean Windass said after the match :

"I can understand the supporters being frustrated, but they've got to realise that, with the budget we've got, or haven't got, they've got to get behind us. If people who are slagging the manager off take a look at our substitutes' bench, they'll see three or four young lads. Our build-up play today was good but quality in the final third was lacking, and at the moment we're having problems scoring."
