Football - Jones ready for Bantams redemption

Bradford captain Gary Jones wants to "right some wrongs" in Sunday's televised Sky Bet League One clash with Coventry at Valley Parade.

The Bantams turned in one of their poorest performances under Phil Parkinson last week when crashing out of the FA Cup at the first hurdle at Rotherham and veteran midfielder Jones is ready to payback both his manager and the club's fans.

"Rotherham was a massively disappointing game for us and we want to bounce back this Sunday," said Jones.

"We let ourselves down and we let the supporters down at Rotherham.

"Our supporters work their socks off all week to allow them to pay to come and watch us perform.

"If I was a supporter in our away end last Saturday, I would have been very disappointed by the way we performed.

"We have a chance now however, to put it right on Sunday.

"In front of the television cameras, a national audience and probably another bumper Valley Parade crowd, we have the opportunity to put some wrongs right.

"It is always nice for the club to get a bit of extra exposure in front of the cameras, but our main incentive is to put last weekend's disappointing result behind us."
