Mark Trueman was disappointed with a “tough” defeat - after his side fell 1-0 to Salford City.
Ian Henderson’s second-half stoppage-time goal was enough for the Ammies to leave the Utilita Energy Stadium with all three points.
Trueman was eager to admit the loss was a difficult one to take, however, the City boss was encouraged by his team’s overall display.
He said: “The defeat was a tough one to accept.
“We were the better team for large periods of the game, and it was our best performance for a while, which probably shows how poor our performances have been of late.
“The players created some good opportunities but, unfortunately, we were not clinical enough.
“To lose the way we did was very frustrating, but we were punished for not taking our chances.”
Trueman went on to stress the importance of City having a positive end to the campaign.
The Bantams host Scunthorpe United on Saturday before travelling to Morecambe for their final game of the 2020/21 Sky Bet League Two season.
He added: “We now need to focus on ending the season on a positive note.
“To lose like we did, and as we have been doing, it is important to get it out of our system and look ahead.
“If we play like we did in this game, I am confident we can earn positive results in our last couple of matches, and build for next season.”
