Gareth Evans was frustrated to see the Bantams’ six-match unbeaten run come to an end - following a 2-1 defeat to Newport County.
Despite breaking the deadlock moments into the second period, City fell to two Exiles goals in the final 15 minutes at the Cardiff City Stadium.
The midfielder believes Mark Trueman and Conor Sellars’ side were unlucky to come away from the game empty handed, and did see positives from their performance.
He said: “It was a very difficult defeat to take.
“We knew we were not at our best, but I thought we were extremely unlucky to have lost the game.
“Still, there were encouraging signs from us - particularly on the counter attack - but, unfortunately, we were unable to add more goals and seal the three points.
“We have to remain positive, and now we move on to the next game where we need to try and bounce back.”
Despite defeat, the 32-year-old was delighted to have made his 100th appearance for the club.
Having struggled with injuries so far this campaign - during his second spell in claret and amber - he is hoping to end the season on a positive note.
Evans added: “It is a fantastic feeling to have made 100 appearances for such a great club.
“I am very proud to have achieved this and, hopefully, there are many more to come.
“This season has been difficult for me, personally, having to deal with injuries, but I feel like I am in a good position now.
“Hopefully, I can contribute more to the team, and finish the season strongly.”
