Former Witton loanee George Miller has been in the goals again whilst on loan at Bradford City. He scored the Bantams goal in their 1-1 draw at the weekend. He then followed that up by netting against Everton U21s in the EFL Trophy on Tuesday night and also scored in the penalty shoot-out after the game ended in a draw.
