Goalkeeper Luke McGee was thankful to his City team-mates and supporters for a "warm welcome" - after making his debut against Scunthorpe United. 

The Bantams were held to a 2-2 draw by the Iron in what was McGee's first appearance for the club, having signed on Thursday. 

Despite being "disappointed" with the result, the Portsmouth loanee was delighted to get 90 minutes under his belt. 

McGee stated: “We got off to a great start. Obviously, we were disappointed with the two goals we conceded.

"But, I was happy to get my first 90 minutes for the club, especially in front of our home supporters, who were fantastic.

“They gave me a nice, warm welcome and I thank them for that. But now, I hope we can go down to Colchester on Tuesday and start to pick up results. 

“Also, the boys have been great and have been supporting me from day one.

“If I look at my personal display from the game, I thought it was good.

"I am always nit-picking at my performances but I was glad to get the 90 minutes in, because I have not had much game-time, recently.”

Despite wanting to take more from the encounter, McGee drew positives from the game.

He believes Gary Bowyer's men know what needs to be done to improve upon the stalemate. 

He added: “The match was difficult but I do not think we need to improve on anything major. We had a chat after the game and we all know what we need to work on. 

“We play as a collective and never pick anyone out. So, on a whole, I think we just need to give that extra little bit to push on and get to where we need to be.

“Plus, the good thing about this league is that the games come around thick and fast. We have a game on Tuesday and then play again on Saturday.

“That gives us a chance to put things right and, hopefully, we can begin that against Colchester.”
