EXCLUSIVE | Scot Bennett reacts to Bradford victory

22 February 2020

Scot Bennett was delighted that Newport County AFC bounced back from Wednesday night with victory over Bradford City.

The defender struck the winner after Ryan Inniss had cancelled out Clayton Donaldson’s opener but was just pleased to see the Exiles pick up all three points.

“I think it was what we needed after Wednesday night,” he said.

“We spoke through the week after that game and we wanted a positive result to push us on.

“To get the winner is an added bonus but [I’m] just delighted to get the win.

“It’s nice to get them. I don’t remember much about it, I just remember it coming out and I put my foot through it and it’s nice for it to go in and get the win.”

Bennett admitted Bradford posed plenty of problems but was pleased with how the team defended.

“I think they slowed the game down to start with, we were trying to put a tempo into it,” he added.

“They did well to slow it down and we couldn’t get going.

“They obviously nick one at the back post and we had to create our own tempo then. To go on and score quickly helps.

“It was hard out there with the pitch and wind especially in the second half, they whipped in a few really good corners.

“It was resolute, backs against the wall, throw your body in front of it and it’s always nice to win that way.”
