Bradford manager Peter Taylor hailed his side's 1-0 home win over former club Wycombe as a "very important three points".

Kevin Ellison's debut goal earned the Bantams their first win in seven to ease the pressure on Taylor, arriving at the far post to apply the finish in the 69th minute and promptly being booked for removing his shirt in celebration.

Taylor said: "It was a very important three points. They looked very confident and we looked nervous. We scored at a very important time, which gave us a big boost."

He added: "I am pleased for Kevin Ellison because any player wants supporters to like him and I am sure our fans love him after his goal.

"He can score goals and cross the ball and in the second half he showed us more of what he can do.

"Unfortunately James Hanson picked up a groin injury early on and looks like being out for two or three weeks and David Syers got a hamstring injury so that's another two or three weeks. Injuries haven't been kind to us this year."

Wycombe manager Gary Waddock admitted his side lacked the quality to penetrate Bradford.

Waddock said: "We did reasonably well in the first half but lacked a bit of quality in the final third.

"The goal we conceded was a poor one from our point of view because we switched off, turned our backs expecting a long throw and the ball ended up in our net. We were punished for it but it is not the end of the world.

"Lack of quality crossing and finishing cost us. Bradford were well up for the game and the crowd gave them terrific backing."
