Man of the match Matty Foulds was pleased to pick up a point against high-flying Port Vale after a ‘tough’ game yesterday afternoon.

Foulds’ 74th-minute assist earned his side a draw against the Valiants, who had won their previous eight games at Vale Park.

City’s No.14 was delighted to play a vital role in the Bantams’ equaliser, and praised his side's determination to not be beaten by tough opposition. 

He said: “It was a great game to be involved in - getting forward, putting balls into the box and creating lots of chances.

“Luckily, I put a ball into the box and Lee Angol finished it off. I knew as soon as I put the ball in, if someone got a touch on it, we would score.

“It shows great character, to go a goal behind and fight back to push for an equaliser.

“Everyone was pleased in the changing room.”

Foulds, a boyhood City fan, started the game at left wing-back before filling in on the right side for the second half to accommodate Liam Ridehalgh’s return from injury.

The 23-year-old put in a man-of-the-match performance despite playing half of the game out of position, and was more than happy to adapt when called upon.

He added: “When the gaffer told me to go to right-back, it was not a problem.

“I was never going to argue, or say I did not want to do that.

“I just went over there and did my job, and I thought I did it well enough - for a left-back on the right.”
