Callum Cooke admitted the Bantams "should be winning" games like yesterday's, following a 1-1 draw against Scunthorpe United. 

The Bantams were made to fight back from 1-0 down at Glanford Park, with Yann Songo'o's second-half header ensuring his side took a point home. 

Despite having to battle difficult conditions in Lincolnshire, Cooke was disappointed with the fact Derek Adams' men were not able to secure the victory. 

He said: “It was a game of two halves. In the first, we just had to get through to half-time at 0-0 but, unfortunately, we were unable to do that.

“We were disappointed to go into the break 1-0 down but, in the second half, we showed plenty of character to pull out of the sticky situation we found ourselves in.

“Obviously, the weather was a big element in the game.

“We have taken one point, but we should be coming here and earning all three.

“Again, the chances were there, and we just need to start taking them in any way possible.  

“We take the positives away from the game. We were a goal behind, but kept going and got our equaliser.

“A point is better than nothing, and that is how we have to look at it. We take the draw and move on.”

Cooke was pleased to have played his first full 90 minutes for City, for the first time since mid-October.

The 24-year-old had played every minute in the league up to that point, and insists he needs to take his chances to get back in the side on a regular basis.

The midfielder added: “I have had to bide my time over the past couple of weeks.

“Obviously, I have been frustrated not to feature a bit more, but that is the way football goes sometimes.

“You cannot beat being out there on the pitch. It is never a nice feeling watching on from the sidelines.

“You just have to keep being professional and working hard on the training ground to take your chance when you get it.

“I got an assist in this game and on another day, I could have got one or two more.”
