Peter Taylor was delighted to see Bradford end their dismal run of eight home league matches without a win by beating bottom club Darlington 1-0 on a heavy Valley Parade pitch.

James Hanson's 26th-minute header secured the Bantams` first home victory in the league since October 24 and that followed an impressive 3-1 win at League Two leaders Rochdale in midweek.

"It was a job done and I personally thought we deserved it based on our first-half performance," said Taylor.

"Other than the goal we scored, we had a couple of other chances to score and should have taken them. Good teams, if they get the chances, they take them. We are not quite there yet but we are nearly there and I am pleased with the attitude of the players and their willingness to work.

"There were a lot of positives to be taken out of the game. In the dressing room before the match I was pleased to see our players looked a determined bunch.

"There were a few things that didn't go right, but they accept that and they are determined to put them right."
