Mark Trueman was happy to take a point from a fierce encounter at the Utilita Energy Stadium - following today’s 1-1 draw with Bolton Wanderers. 

The Bantams fell behind with 83 minutes on the clock in West Yorkshire, but fought back to ensure they extended their unbeaten run to seven matches. 

Trueman was generally entertained by the game, and was happy to have left with a share of the spoils. 

The Bantams boss said: “It was a good game of football, between two in-form teams. Bolton are a very good side - who are winning a lot of games at the moment.

“Overall, we are satisfied with the point, but are disappointed the supporters were not here inside the stadium to see Danny Rowe’s equaliser.

“We were playing against a good team, and have to learn from today. 

“Bolton were on the front foot for large spells of the game, and we would have liked slightly more control. 

“We had a lot of success on the counter attack, and did not really want to change that, but two good sides counteracted each other in the end.”

Trueman was again delighted to see his side’s never-say-die attitude pay dividends, after Danny Rowe’s 93rd-minute equaliser. 

He drew encouragement from the fact City fight until the end of every match, giving them the biggest chance of taking something from the encounter. 

Trueman added: “We had to show that character, and not losing the game is very important for us. The character this team has got is second to none. 

“They all fight for each other, and continue right until the end. That is why we are getting so many positive results, at this moment.

“We can build on today’s result, as it extends our unbeaten run, and can take the positivity we showed in the final 15 minutes into the next game. 

“We are always looking to improve. Anyone can beat anyone in this division, and we need to prepare as much as we can - and continue to win games. 

“If we cannot win them, we need to do our best not to lose them - and we did that today.”
