Mark Trueman was delighted with another “big three points” - after his and Conor Sellars’ side beat Barrow 2-1.
City went eight games unbeaten and recorded back-to-back victories against the Bluebirds, thanks to goals from Danny Rowe and Callum Cooke.
The Bantams’ interim manager was pleased with the endeavour of his players, and with another victory.
He said: “It was a big three points, and we definitely needed them.
“We needed to carry on where we left off at Southend and pick up another victory, regardless of where we are in the league table.
“The character and the endeavour of the players was fantastic, especially in the second half.
“Barrow made it tough for us, with their shape and different personnel, so we had to adapt to it on the day.”
Adaptability was another of City’s traits which again thrilled Trueman - with his side again having to adapt to different situations during the game.
After seeing the Bantams withstand periods of pressure from Barrow, he was pleased with the way the players dug in to put another three point on the board.
Trueman added: “This division gives you different challenges each time. You can prepare as much as possible, but the opposition can still make it difficult.
“It is about how we adapt to the challenges, and find solutions, and I thought we did that well again.
“We won ugly, but we did it with quality. We had some great moments which probably showed in the goals we scored today.
“We have to win in different circumstances, because of the variety of teams in the league.
“It is important we keep this momentum going, and we need to keep building on it.”
