Mark Trueman praised the togetherness of his Bantams - following this afternoon’s 2-0 victory over high-flying Cheltenham Town. 

A goal at the beginning of each half from Andy Cook ensured all three points came back to West Yorkshire with City, leaving the promotion-chasing Robins empty handed. 

Trueman admitted how pleased he was by the team nature of the performance. 

The interim Bantams boss said: “It was very much a collective effort. 

“Even the players who came off the bench were fantastic. How they defended late on was great to see. 

“I cannot pick one or two individuals, it was a good team performance.

“We are a confident group and know our abilities. We know if we apply ourselves in the right way, we will get positive results, which is what happened.”

On top of the team spirit on show at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium, Trueman was also delighted with how his players battled challenging conditions to overcome a difficult test. 

He added: “We were pleased with the performance. We coped with the conditions really well, against a very good team. 

“We were very professional with how we played, and how we applied ourselves. 

“To soak up the pressure and score from a set-piece in the first half was very pleasing. 

“We were holding onto our 1-0 lead but improved the way we were playing in the second half.

“When we had the wind against us, we could play the ball more and overload the final third to cause them problems. We then scored a second which we were delighted with.

“I think Cheltenham are probably the best team in the league, which makes the win even more pleasing.”
