Bradford (Park Avenue) interim manager Marcus Law says he plans on using this week to make some changes in personnel after a fourth defeat in five matches this season.

Law, who replaced Garry Thompson just two games into the campaign, oversaw the side’s first point of the season last week with a 1-1 draw at Gateshead, but any work was undone on Saturday with a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Alfreton Town.

“It didn’t get off to the best of starts,” Law said. “We got here and our centre half Nelson (Digbeu) has broken down, meaning we had to bring in Ryan Cresswell earlier than we probably wanted to.

“At the end of the day, he’s missed 10 days without training or playing due to family reasons, which in the grand scheme of things are much more important.

“We’ve had to throw him in there, and in fairness to him he’s not done much wrong, he was a bit off the pace, but that was going to happen, I can’t put him at fault.

“Ultimately, they’ve had a penalty, an own goal and two bad backpasses, and it’s 4-0. That says everything about what this group is at the moment.

“There’s some naivety, some bad decision making, and that’s what’s hurting them.”
