Manager Peter Taylor wishes Bradford nothing but the best following the 3-2 win over nine-man Stockport in his last match in charge of the Bantams.

The former England Under-21 boss announced after his side's 1-0 defeat to Chesterfield in midweek that he would be stepping down following the crunch clash with the Hatters. Gareth Evans' injury-time strike wrapped up the win for Bradford, whilst Steve Williams also bagged a brace.

Taylor said: "I spoke to the players after the game and wished them well. I told them that the majority of them are my players and I want them to be very professional because this is a magnificent football club."

He added: "The first thing they have to do is make sure we stay up and the club has to kick on from there.

"Whoever comes into the club in my place will have a good crop of players and he might have better luck with injuries.

"I wish Bradford City well and I am disappointed to be leaving early."

Stockport caretaker manager Peter Ward was distraught after his side conceded a late goal and slipped to the bottom of the npower League Two table.

Ward said: "It's tough after playing so well to concede a goal after 95 and a half minutes and lose the match.

"I have nothing but praise for the lads. They gave everything they had for the shirt. Every game is important for us now.

"It was an excellent performance and although were beaten the players haven't given up. As long as they have that fight in them we have a chance."
