Bantams skipper Romain Vincelot says although Saturday's home defeat to Northampton Town was a source of frustration, City must remember they still have plenty to be positive about going into the second stage of the season.

A number of late chances and an injury time strike from Paul Taylor couldn't prevent a narrow 2-1 defeat for Stuart McCall's side at the hands of Northampton.

Despite their loss to the Cobblers at the Northern Commercials Stadium at the weekend, City remain in fifth spot in the Sky Bet League One table.

McCall's men are also six points clear of the sides chasing those play-off spots.

After the disappointment of Saturday, Vincelot knows City must maintain their work levels and put all of their efforts now into this weekend's trip to Bristol Rovers.

Vincelot said: "Everyone is frustrated, but we have to look at the big picture.

"There is still a lot of games and a lot of points to play for, and we are still in a great position in the league.

"We have a good three and a half months left of the campaign.

"One look at the table should give us some positivity. The aim now is to use all the intensity and enthusiasm we've got to build on this position.

"This (Northampton) game was a difficult one, but now we have to move onto the next one.

"That is the only way you can move on, you have to look forward to the next game and channel all your energy into that.

"Not getting those little details right is costing us.

"It is not easy with the injuries at the moment, but we have to stick together.

"You could see the spirit at the end when we kept going and created those scoring chances.

"When we are on the pitch, we don't think about players who are missing.

"All of the lads tried very hard in the match, it is just a shame we couldn't quite get something from the game in the end.

"Sometimes you can't always get the result, and we do understand the fans' frustrations, but we just hope they can see that we are giving our all."
