Returning captain Richard O’Donnell was content with a point - following the Bantams’ 0-0 draw with Oldham Athletic in Sky Bet League Two. 

Neither team proved able break the deadlock at the Utilita Energy Stadium, as Mark Trueman and Conor Sellars’ side extended their unbeaten run at home to eight matches. 

Despite being disappointed his team did not gain the three points, O’Donnell does believe the Bantams can build on the draw moving forward. 

He said: “The main positive was the fact we did not lose the game. 

“Of course, it would have been great to win but, after back-to-back defeats, stopping the rot was the most important thing. 

“We can hopefully build on this point and take some inspiration into future games.  

“We have a busy fixture schedule coming up, so need to start picking up wins again and aim to finish as high as possible in the league table.”

The City skipper was delighted to have kept a clean sheet on his return to the starting line-up. 

The 32-year-old goalkeeper had not appeared for the Bantams since Boxing Day, and was full of praise for current competition in positions throughout the squad. 

He added: “It felt great to keep a clean sheet on my return to the starting line-up.

“Of course, I am disappointed to have not been playing recently, but I have to respect how well Sam Hornby has been performing.

“There is plenty of competition for places all over the pitch at the moment, which means everyone has to work hard to earn a place in the starting 11. 

“I am so proud to be the captain of this club and, whenever I am called upon to play, I will always perform to the best of my ability.”
