WESTON St John gave another poor display when they lost 3-0 to Bradford Town in their latest Toolstation Western Division 1 fixture.Saints started brightly, but Bradford got back into the game and took the lead in the 25th minute when slack defending allowed them to take the lead which, they held until the break.In the second half, St Johns tried to get the equaliser, but the forward line of Hodges and Marlow were starved of any decent possession.Jamie Crandon was brought on in place of Gready and things improved slightly. Bradford doubled their lead in the 70th minute when poor defending allowed the ball to reach the penalty area.Despite being urged on by Ryan Harris, there was no sparkle to the way St Johns were playing. Nathan Best came on for Marlow, with Walford pushing up front and caused problems straight away.However, with Saints pushing forward, Bradford broke away and scored their final goal in the dying minutes.This was another frustrating performance by St Johns in a season of inconsistent displays.
