Bradford coach Mick Potter was delighted with his side's victory over champions Leeds and is confident of getting another positive result on Saturday when his club announce the result of their fund-raising appeal.

A bumper crowd of 20,821 for the Good Friday derby provided a cash boost in the Bulls' bid to raise £500,000 to avoid the threat of going into administration.

"The crowd was good here tonight - I think that helps - and there are a few things still going on," Potter said.

"I'd like to think everything will be okay, but you never really know until the announcement."

Of the game itself, Potter added: "I'm very proud of the players for the way performed tonight and the way they held together under a bit of adversity.

"No matter what happened, I think the players were going to do whatever it took to get the result.

"It's fantastic for the players and fantastic for the crowd. I think both teams were desperate to get the two points.

"I thought we were a little bit too conservative in the first half, but we got the hang of it better in the second half. We got the ball to the edges a little more."

Leeds coach Brian McDermott admitted he was disappointed with his side's attack as they slumped to a third consecutive defeat, but was not surprised by the battling performance of his former club.

"Players normally respond to things like that," he said. "I thought we defended really strong and we created enough chances on attack, but our skill was just poor.

"It's just the way it is at times, we were just off with the ball."
