Bradford captain Jones: Torquay tougher proposition than Arsenal

Bradford City captain Gary Jones rates Torquay United as a tougher prospect than beaten Capital One Cup opponents Arsenal.

Jones delivered a scathing assessment of the Gunners’ shortcomings that will only intensify the pressure on their under-fire manager Arsene Wenger.

"I think it’s safe to say Torquay gave us a tougher game," said the 35-year old, whose previous claim to fame was making a record number of appearances for Rochdale.

"It was like a role reversal, because Torquay defended really well against us, whereas it was us defending really well against Arsenal.

"When you look at what the two teams cost (Bradford £7,500, Arsenal over £65million), it is an incredible result. Without a shadow of a doubt, if I was an Arsenal player heading home after that, I would be embarrassed."
