Bantams boss Stuart McCall was left frustrated after defeat to Charlton Athletic and felt that his side deserved at least a share of the spoils from an encounter settled by a single Jake Forster-Caskey goal.

He said: 'To lose this afternoon was a bitter pill to swallow. In the first half, we did reasonably well and it was a tight game and very equal. In the second half, we came out and showed great desire to try and win the game.'

'After they went ahead, our reaction to going behind was terrific. Their 'keeper has made two great saves late on to stop us from getting at least a point. We were really pleased with the second half performance, but we've got to lick our wounds and bounce back.'

'We're bitterly disappointed especially after the second half performance. In all honesty, we wouldn't have been happy only to take a point from the game.'

'We got the ball wide in the second half and Gilly (Alex Gilliead) was a real threat. On another day we'd have won that game. Charlton are a really good side and they'll be up there come the end of the season, there's no doubt about that; (Ricky) Holmes was a threat all afternoon.'

'Tyrell (Robinson) and Jacob (Hanson) have done really well for the Development Squad and Tyrell has bagged a few goals lately. It's great for them to make their league debuts for the club but it's a shame it's had to be in a defeat.

'We've got a lot of positives to take from today and I can't fault the players for their effort.'
