Bantams skipper Romain Vincelot insists there will be no panic or over-reaction to Tuesday's Boxing Day defeat against Peterborough United.

The 3-1 loss to Peterborough at the Northern Commercials Stadium comes after City also suffered an unfortunate defeat at AFC Wimbledon three days earlier.

Speaking after the Peterborough game, Vincelot was keen to point out that City still have plenty to be positive about.

The Bantams remain in the play-off places despite the Peterborough defeat, as they look to finish off their 2017 fixtures with success over Oxford United at Valley Parade on Saturday.

Vincelot said: "We are all disappointed by the (Peterborough) game - we know it is two in a row now - but we must look to bounce back against Oxford.

"It shows how much consistency we have had over a number of months now that this is a very rare thing for us to have these back-to-back defeats.

"We have a good club here, we know that, and we want to put things right in front of our fans on Saturday.

"We must remember that we had won our previous three league games ahead of last weekend, so that is three wins out of five in total.

"Nine points out of a possible fifteen is definitely not the end of the world.

"We are clearly disappointed by the (Peterborough) loss but we will take a step back and look at the bigger picture.

"If you step back and look at that bigger picture and what we've achieved in this year of 2017, you can see that this is a strong and healthy club.

"We are still in the mix and in a good position with twenty-two league games still to go.

"When you look at it positively like that, you want the next game to come around now.

"You cannot feel sorry for yourself. We will learn from the Peterborough match and move on.

"We want to carry on looking forwards."
