AS the Town away record now reads six consecutive losses, Saturday at Valley Parade was a typical performance.
Town started the first half the brightest, driving forward, and attacking the Bradford back line throughout.
But as the Bradford defence looked troubled by the pace and power of Facey, and quick footwork of Abbott, Town were unable to turn such pressure into clear-cut opportunities and a first half lead to reward their bright start.
Rather, as with much of the season, Town fell behind when they ought to have been ahead.
Roared on by over 4,000 travelling fans, Town took the game to their hosts but it was Chris Brandon who caught the eye.
Quick on the ball, inventive and accomplished, Brandon was the star performer for Town in what was otherwise an average team performance.
While the scoreline arguably flattered a Bradford team without a home win in nine attempts, Town didn't do enough to win the game.
Referee Hegley didn't help matters, as on a number of occasions he failed to punish the home team for what appeared to be clear-cut fouls.
Even worse for the Town faithful, when a Brandon pass made its way to a clear-through Abbott, the referee opted to call play back for a foul on the former, rather than play the advantage which would have surely led to Abbott opening Town's account. It wasn't to be, and while Town didn't do enough to win, Bradford must feel lucky that their first win in seven at home came as it did.
Windass pressurised and threatened the Town defence but the hosts created few chances and were rewarded with a flattering scoreline.
Losing to the enemy twice in a season is very difficult to take, but the performance in both games wasn't good enough.
Jacko and Co have done well to achieve a mid-table finish the year after promotion, and hopefully with additions during summer, Town can prove more consistent next term.
