Match-winner James Vaughan was delighted to have battled through difficult conditions and recorded three points, following yesterday’s 2-0 win over Mansfield Town.

The Stags created problems for Gary Bowyer’s men throughout, though the Bantams emerged victorious thanks to a penalty in each half from Vaughan.

The City captain was pleased with the character of the side and to have taken his goal-scoring tally to nine - for the season.

Vaughan said: “It was a great win. It was a tough game with difficult conditions but we managed things really well.

“We were delighted to come out of the other end with three points to end the year.

“We battled brilliantly and did well to win the penalties which I was thankfully able to convert. It was a good day all round.

“I do not really care how the goals come. A goal is a goal - at the end of the day - and I was delighted to have taken my tally for the season up to nine.

“Thankfully, they helped us get the three points which is all that matters.”

Victory saw the Bantams return to winning ways and extend their unbeaten run to six matches.

The former Everton man insists the encouragement came from taking all three points, after recent draws, and hopes he and his team-mates can continue their good form.

“I think the disappointment of the draws in recent weeks is a sign of where we are at,” the 31-year-old added. 

“While it is great we are now six unbeaten and back to winning ways, we knew we needed to get more wins and are always determined to take as many points as we can.

“The Mansfield win was important because we have been drawing too many games recently.

“We are hoping it can be the start of something good and we can remain unbeaten and carry on winning games.

“Six unbeaten is good in any league and we are looking to hold on to that, now.”
