Views from Chesterimp following Tuesday night’s 3-0 win away at Bradford City in the EFL Trophy: “Good performance, really outclassed Bradford at times, could be argued that should happen anyway against a side a division lower but you have to make it happen.

Long looked assured, Hopper showed again that we play better when he’s on the pitch, but agree with Walker and Bramall gets my Man of The Match for a dynamic performance, would like to see those ‘offsides’ again. Everyone else had a good night though Adelakun needs to be more consistent with his passing, some great ones but also got us into trouble a couple of times”

More views from the Match Thread:

sedgleyimp: “Great performance and win. Might be a team in the league below us, but Bradford are no mugs so very pleased with that. Nice to get the clean sheet as well. Good team performance across the board.”

Sincilbanks: “Good performance, time to rest up and then put a similar one together in our next league game. Bramall was excellent as was Hopper. Long didn’t do anything wrong and pleasingly decisive on a couple of occasions.”

Scotimp: “It was a very comfortable win, Bradford only troubled our defence when we gave them the ball. Not sure Sam had to make a save to speak of. Poole very good, Adelakun getting better, Scully lethal, Bramall looking more like a proper winger with every game, Bishop superior.”
