Bradford manager Phil Parkinson could not hide his delight for goalscorer Zavon Hines following the weekend draw with York.

Hines, 23, signed on a free transfer following his release from Burnley in the summer, clinched Parkinson's side a point from a 1-1 draw with a fine individual effort two minutes after stepping off the bench as a second-half substitute.

"I'm really pleased for Zavon," Parkinson said after the match. "It wasn't just his goal though, he was bright when he came on and gave us a real lift. Zavon and Thommo (Garry Thompson) did well when they were brought on.

"He was obviously brought off at half-time last weekend (at Dagenham), but a number of players could have been that day. This week though he has been tremendous and I'm not just talking about the game, I'm talking about in training as well.

"He's worked so hard and has earned that goal. Every day after training he's asked a member of staff to stay behind with him to help him work on his finishing and his sprinting with the ball.

"He's got his rewards for that work and I'm really pleased he has responded in the right manner. It wasn't just any goal as well, it was a terrific goal."
