Stuart McCall was delighted to have led his side to picking up an important victory - at home to Stevenage.

City recorded their first win in nine matches and their first since McCall’s return, to secure a league double over Boro.

The Bantams boss believes three points will fill his players with confidence and do his side the world of good, heading forward.

McCall said: “We are naturally delighted. It is a massive three points for the football club and a big win for the players, who had gone eight games without one.

“Confidence-wise, it will make a massive difference, moving forward.

“It was always going to be difficult in tough conditions against a side fighting for their lives at the bottom of the league.

“We said we needed to make sure we wanted it more than them and, in the end, we showed we did.

“I think we could have been better in terms of our quality again, in the first half, but were a lot more effective after the break and showed good character to win the game.”

In trying circumstances which have seen a change in training arrangements so far, this week, McCall was pleased to see his side’s character shine through.

He believed the pitch would always be a difficult one but the way his side fought saw them take the victory, in the end.

The City chief added: “The pitch was always going to be tough to play on but I think we dealt with the conditions really well.

“We battled very hard again and, after the break, got the ball forward and attacked with a lot of intent.

“When we came forward, we flooded bodies into the box and got plenty of crosses in, which is where Shay McCartan scored his second goal.

“The lads deserve huge credit for their character and they are the kind of traits we are looking for, which is naturally encouraging.”
