Levi Sutton admitted his frustration, following City’s 1-1 draw at home to table toppers, Forest Green Rovers.
The Bantams opened the scoring early in the tie - as Andy Cook netted his seventh of the season - but the visitors levelled just after half-time and left West Yorkshire with a point.
Sutton expressed his disappointment with the result - claiming that his side should have come away with more.
He said: “It was a good point against the league leaders, but we could have gone in at half-time 3-0 up, and there would have been no complaints.
“We had some good chances, but did not take them, and we paid for it.
“Had we have won that game, no-one would really have complained.
“The boys put in a good performance. You could see, all around the pitch, everyone worked hard for each other.”
The No.22 also praised the team’s response to a disappointing run of form - citing Derek Adams’ change of system as the key to their recent results against high-flying opposition.
Sutton also highlighted the determination of his team-mates to turn their form around, with the Bantams now sitting two points adrift of the play-offs.
He added: “We went on a bad spell, and you look at the fixtures and think the spell could carry on.
“We tweaked the formation a little bit, and it worked. The boys bought into it and worked really hard for the side.
“It was a good shift from everyone, and we probably deserved more. I am frustrated.”
