Petr Cech accepts Bradford City deserved to qualify for the next round of the FA Cup.


Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech revealed the Blues were on the wrong side of a shocking defeat at Stamford Bridge after losing 4-2 to Bradford City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The west London club took the lead thanks to goals by Gary Cahill and Ramirez, it was looking to be an easy win for the Mourinho’s side not until Jon Stead reduced the deficit in the 41st minute just before half-time.

And in the second-half, Bradford City secured three goals through Felipe Morais, Andrew Halliday and Mark Yeates - Who scored i the dying minute.

All in all, Czech international Cech admitted it was a Black Saturday for the Premier League teams and Manchester City, Tottenham and Chelsea all lost at home to lower league clubs.

“I thought once we went 2-0 up we had a big advantage but it was a tricky one because we actually scored from almost nothing and they had chances before,” Cech told BBC Sport.

“We knew it would be difficult and as soon as they scored the equaliser we lost control of what we wanted to do. Today they were much more enthusiastic about the game.

“It was a Black Saturday for the Premier League teams. Every year you can see this kind of result in the FA Cup. That is why I always say it is special. It is just unfortunate that today, for the first time, I was on the wrong side of this miracle. Credit to Bradford, they scored four great goals and deserved to go through.”
