  8. I feel numb - McCall

    FT: Bradford 0-1 Millwall

    Stuart McCall

    Bradford boss Stuart McCall told Sky Sports: "The game went how we thought it would, I just feel numb at the moment.

    "We knew it would be tight and that one goal might do it. It's sore to take but congratulations to Millwall.

    "Jordan Archer made a superb save and that is the thin line between failure and success.

    "I'm very disappointed in the stewarding allowing their fans to get over the halfwayline. I had fans goading me and my players and I was close to clocking one or two of them I can tell you. They need to look at that.

    "Our support were outstanding and I feel for them."

    BBC Sport at Wembley

    After heartbreak at Wembley a year ago, Millwall are back in the Championship.

    The Lions were a completely different side after the break, and Neil Harris' team celebrate a magnificent achievement.

    Bradford look understandably devastated at the final whistle. The Bantams could have been home and dry with a few better final passes in the first half, but instead another season in League One awaits.
