Veteran Jones impresses in City win

16 September 2012

Assistant manager Steve Parkin praised skipper Gary Jones after Bradford maintained their 100% home record with a 3-0 win over Barnet.

Three goals in 10 minutes at the start of the second half sealed the three points.

Jones, who joined Bradford from Rochdale during the summer, was outstanding in midfield and his free-kicks supplied two of City's goals.

Parkin said: ``At 35, Gary Jones defies logic, storming around the field and still going at the end.

``He is a role model for the younger players and shows that is how much effort you have to put in to play as long as he has.``

Parkin is delighted that Bradford have begun the season with three home wins in a row.

He added: ``We worked long and hard to make sure that the home form is one we can be proud of and the fans can enjoy.

Barnet boss Mark Robson is desperate to see his side break their duck this season and get that first win on the board.

``I was delighted with the first half. We defended very well, looked strong and limited Bradford to a very few opportunities and as the first half went on we passed the ball very well,`` said Robson, whose team are bottom of the table with only one point from six matches.

``I am desperate to get the first win. We believe that once we get that win we will be able move on and it will ease the pressure.``
