Elliot Watt was pleased with another “strong” defensive performance - after the Bantams earned a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Tranmere Rovers. 

City took the lead with 62 minutes on the clock at Prenton Park, before remaining resolute at the back to record their third-straight win. 

The 20-year-old midfielder felt the three points were made sweeter when considering the challenge which faced he and his team-mates on Boxing Day. 

Watt said: “Of course, we were delighted with the win. 

“It has been an excellent couple of weeks for us, in terms of results, and to treat the supporters to another three points tops it off. 

“Tranmere are a top team with top players, so we knew it was not going to be easy. 

“We all had to make sure we stuck to our individual tasks - both in and out of possession. 

“On our day, we can beat anyone. Thankfully, we stood strong defensively and came away with the victory.” 

Watt also believes, despite a positive run of results, there are better performances to come from Mark Trueman’s side.

The Bantams have taken 10 points from their last 12 available - since Trueman and Conor Sellars took caretaker charge, but the Scottish under-21 international insists there is always room for improvement. 

He added: “Despite this current run of results, we know we can perform better. 

“We have had the confidence we can beat anyone throughout the season, but it has not happened often enough. 

“At this moment in time, each player - both in and out of possession - is doing their job to perfection, so we need to keep this up. 

“There is plenty more to come from this team and, if we can keep building, who knows where it will take us? 

“The main thing is that we do not get carried away, and take things one game at a time.

“We head into the next game against Port Vale where the important thing is that we back these last four games up, and pick up another win.”
