Loan Watch: John tastes victory

by Stuart Vose

Defender Egan on winning side.

John Egan’s unbeaten start to life on loan at Bradford continued over the weekend as the defender helped the Bantams keep a second successive clean sheet.

The defender made his debut during a 0-0 draw against Chesterfield last week and played the full 90 minutes as Phil Parkinson’s side ran out 2-0 winners at bottom club Aldershot.

Bermuda international Nahki Wells scored both goals, intercepting a backpass to net 28 minutes in before doubling his tally from close range six minutes before the break.

Bradford sit fourth in Npower League Two following the win, four points third-placed Cheltenham and nine off runaway league leaders Gillingham.

Elsewhere, Ahmed Elmohamady played the full 90 minutes for Hull as the Tigers went down 2-1 at Cardiff to end a run of three straight wins.

David Meyler came off the bench 11 minutes into the second half to make his debut for City, who remain fourth in the Championship.
