Hilarious celebrations sees Bradford fan fall on his face for worldie Scott Banks goal

Hilarious celebrations sees a Bradford City fan fall head first on his face for that worldie Scott Banks goal at Sutton United.

The Bantams maintained their decent away form as they beat their wasteful hosts 2-0 at Gander Green Lane in front of a good turnout in attendance.

Mark Hughes’ side put themselves within touching distance of the League Two automatic promotion places with their sixth win in seven unbeaten games on the road.

Sutton unsettled their high-flying opponents in the first half, with Will Randall forcing a good low save from Harry Lewis before Craig Eastmond threatened with a strike.

But Andy Cook put the visitors ahead against the run of play as grabbed his 15th goal of the season, from Abo Eisa effort which deflected, eight minutes before half time.

Rob Milsom was superb in to deny the visitors a second before the break as he cleared Harry Chapman’s shot off the line.

But it took the Bantams just six minutes into the second half to double their lead thanks to Scott Banks’ fantastic strike.

Banks almost got a second with a free-kick before Jack Rose kept him out later in the half.

Mark Hughes applauded his side’s performance following the Bantams’ 2-0 victory over Sutton United at the VBS Community Stadium.

He said: “I am delighted with the lads, once again.

“This is a tough place to come. They are a team that plays in a certain style and approach, which differs a lot to us.

“The balance we are finding in our play is great at the moment. Away from home, we always look a threat.

“Two fantastic pieces of play from (Andy) Cooky and (Scott) Banksy and, overall, we all looked comfortable.

“The lads at the back were excellent. Roms (Crichlow) was as good as he has been all season and Yann (Songo’o) came in and did what we required.

“If we limit the time the ball goes into the box, then you are always faithful we will be safe from conceding, and I felt we did that today.

“Decent football was being played by us, and we had many other opportunities. Cooky could have had another and (Harry) Chappy’s chance was very close going over the line.

“There were many touches of class and quality, and we took the game away from them.”

“Everybody is working hard, you can see that they are all working for each other,” Hughes added.

“There are touches of quality like Banksy’s goal, but you can see the whole side is feeling the momentum.

“They are all communicating well and always eager to push and press. I am really enjoying that aspect of our play at the moment.

“We are ready for more games like this in terms of opposition, and our eyes are on the huge game next week.

“Our away form is exceptional at the moment, so we need to go on a run at home and we can do that next week.

“Once we sort our form out at home, which I feel we are close to doing, we will be in a really good position.”

@ben2304: Lads brilliant. Really good attitude. Loves his football. Got a few goals. We really like him. Hope he goes on to have a good career with you. Just leave him with us for the entire year please 👏

@CraigS7590: He will be a hell of a player in a few years. If we got promoted to league one, he would be the first player we have to try get back on loan. Left foot wand

@s0mem1ghtsay: That goal was so unreal to see. One second its outside the box, next its in back of the net. Complete limbs in the away end 🐓🔥

@SelhurstJon: The geezer that stacks it to the left🤣🤣😂😂😭

@SHD1903: He’s absolutely awful. Do not recall him in January! He is very bad and should definitely stay at Bradford City for the season! He’s so bad I’d actually terminate his contract and let him join Bradford City on a permanent basis!!!

@Andrewjj1964: Keep your hands off!

@alex_westry: One of the best goals you will see and what a finish that is! Scott Banks take a bow! 🤩

@Adam_dufton: Great goal but can we please give the guy who just landed on his head some credit in the celebration 😂😂😂😂 #bcafc #OnYourHead

@nicksxxx: Almost wet myself watching

@CraigAndrew3: I felt it was a bit harsh they kicked him out. It was a great tumble!

@maureenandrew50: He was pushed over by look of it, yeah bit harsh, other than that Stewards were good fun.
