Mark Trueman was happy to take a point away from in-form Stevenage - following a 1-1 draw at the Lamex Stadium. 

The Bantams fell behind to Luke Norris’ header in the opening period but responded through Clayton Donaldson to extend their unbeaten run to three matches. 

Trueman was content with the result when considering the form Boro are currently enjoying - with this their 12th game unbeaten. 

The Bantams boss said: “It was disappointing we could not come away with all three points, but Stevenage are a good side, and one of the in-form teams in the league. 

“We were pleased to take a point, especially considering the way we started. We showed good character to get ourselves back into the game.

“Once we settled and got to grips with how they were playing, we then caused problems for them to deal with. 

“In the second half, I thought we got our press right and were just unlucky to have not been able to finish our chances. 

“I was pleased with the performance but disappointed we could not get the three points, but it could be an important point come the end of the season - as we approach the business end.”

When reflecting on the Easter weekend and the opponents his side has faced, Trueman is pleased with the points they have amassed. 

The joint City chief continues to draw encouragement from his side’s character in matches, and determination to ensure their unbeaten run was maintained. 

Trueman added: “We can take a lot of positives from today and from the past few games. To have taken four points from this weekend is encouraging. 

“It shows the players’ character and willingness to win. Stevenage do not concede a lot of goals so, for us to go behind but fight back and get ourselves back in the game - before creating more trouble for them, was good. 

“I was pleased with the effort from the players, and we could have had enough to win the game - on another day. 

“It was important, though, that we did not lose and kept our unbeaten run going, and we will now look to pick up more points on the way.”

Trueman and Conor Sellars’ Bantams are back in action at the Utilita Energy Stadium on Saturday (April 10), hosting Grimsby Town (3.00pm).
