Derek Adams bemoaned his side's "worst performance of the season" - following this afternoon's defeat at Crawley Town.
The Bantams pulled back a late goal through Callum Cooke but it was not enough to rescue a point as they fell at The People’s Pension Stadium.
Adams branded his side's performance "extremely poor", and felt they got what they deserved in Sussex.
He said: “It was an extremely poor performance from us, the worst we have had all season.
“We were slow, not good enough in possession and did not create enough opportunities.
“We cannot keep creating chances like we have in previous games and then put in a performance like that.
“This team is more than capable of scoring goals and putting good performances, but we were not good enough.”
The Scotsman made one change from Saturday’s 1-1 draw at home to Barrow with Charles Vernam forced out through injury.
Despite being without six senior players, Adams still felt his side should have done better.
He added: “As a manager, it is very difficult when you do get injuries. All clubs go through it, but we should have had enough players to come away with a positive result.
“We did not really get our shots off and not really trouble their goalkeeper, but that is the story of our season so far.
“In recent games, we have had lots of opportunities to get goals as we got into good areas, but today was not that day.
“Next week, we have Rochdale, but today is one we have to look at and we should have had enough quality on the pitch.”
