Andy Cook insisted there is no time to dwell on the frustration of yesterday's draw against Bristol Rovers, choosing instead to look towards the visit of Hartlepool United on Tuesday.

City were held at the Utilita Energy Stadium after Brett Pitman levelled in the 90th minute to share the spoils.

Cook - whose 49th-minute strike looked to have won the game for City - feels Saturday will not be at the forefront of his side's mind for long, as the Bantams quickly return to action.

He said: “We have got to dust ourselves down now, and get ready for another game on Tuesday.

“Unfortunately, we conceded at the end, so it was a bit frustrating, but we will go again.

“If we keep performing like that, we will win more than we lose - but we have just got to put it right on Tuesday now.”

Cook was full of praise for the performance both on and off the field - hailing the vocal support of the 16,664 supporters inside the Utilita Energy Stadium.

City’s No.9 felt the performance was up to standard, but rued the number of missed chances.

The frontman added: “We did not take all of our chances, and it came back to bite us.

“It is gutting that we did not win the game. They scored really late on, so that was obviously very frustrating.

“When you have got the fans behind us how they are, though, it gives us all the lift we need.”
