Bradford refute claims that Dean Windass has bitten opponents.
Bradford have defended Dean Windass against allegations that the 36-year-old has bitten opponents in two separate incidents.
Southend goalkeeper Darryl Flahavan and Bournemouth midfielder Marcus Browning have accused Windass of biting them during their sides' wins at Valley Parade last month.
Windass, who has scored eight goals in eight games this season, has denied the allegations and he has received support from his employers.
"The match officials in both games saw nothing and videos were sent to The FA following complaints from players," said Bradford club secretary, John Pollard.
"Dean maintains his innocence and having seen the inside of his cut lip after the alleged Bournemouth incident it looks more like somebody has forced his arm in his mouth rather than Dean having bitten the player."
