Derek Adams was thrilled with his side’s “spirited” 3-2 triumph over Mansfield Town in Sky Bet League Two. 

City had to come 2-1 down to edge a five-goal thriller at the One Call Stadium, in front of over 1,500 travelling supporters. 

Adams confessed his delight at the manner in which the team secured their victory, and was full of praise for the character his players showed on the day. 

He said: “It was a great victory which we had to show a lot of fight to earn. 

“The players showed excellent character and should be proud of themselves. 

“One of the most encouraging takes from the game was the way we dealt with setbacks. 

“Mansfield is an extremely difficult place to go and win, so to do it in the way we did was very pleasing.

“The most important thing, as always, was that we got another three points on the board.”

Adams was also proud of the support on show from the Bantams’ travelling faithful. 

A sold-out away end packed into the One Call Stadium and was treated to seeing Andy Cook score a dramatic late winner in front of them. 

He added: “Once again, our supporters were fantastic all afternoon. 

“I was pleased to see we would be attacking the end they were housed in during the second half, because I had a feeling we would give them something to cheer. 

“Of course, it was written in the stars that Andy (Cook) would be the person to score the winner. 

“We were once again appreciative of their support and delighted to have sent them home happy.”

The Bantams are back in action on the road next Saturday, when travelling to Leyton Orient (August 28). CLICK HERE to purchase tickets.
