Gary Bowyer has called for his players to respond to a midweek defeat against Port Vale, when travelling to Macclesfield Town - tomorrow (3.00pm). 

City suffered their first defeat in six league matches - on Tuesday evening - as Vale clinched a 2-1 win, in injury time. 

But Bowyer has called for his Bantams to bounce back when visiting Moss Lane and insists the quick turnaround presents them with the perfect opportunity to do so. 

Bowyer said: "I thought we deserved a lot better, against Port Vale, particularly based on our second-half performance.

"It is up to us to right that wrong tomorrow, at Macclesfield. 

"The beauty of it is that, after a disappointing result, we are back out, again - a matter of days after - with an opportunity to respond.

"There has been a great atmosphere and a very positive vibe at the training ground and everyone is looking forward to the game."

Despite defeat at home to the Valiants, the Bantams boss was encouraged by his side's showing, after the interval. 

Bowyer hopes his players are able to employ the same mentality - tomorrow - to overcome the challenge the Moss Rose outfit will present. 

The City chief added: "Macclesfield is a difficult place to visit. They have only lost once there, in the league, this season.

"They were beaten on Tuesday evening, so will be looking to get back on track.

"We have to replicate our intensity from the second half - against Port Vale - and approach the game in our own way. 

"We must be better over 90 minutes and are looking forward to getting out in front of another packed away end, tomorrow."
