City left-back Liam Ridehalgh was disappointed at having to settle for a point, following the Bantams’ 1-1 draw with Barrow. 

Charles Vernam’s second-half header ensured Derek Adams’ side took a share of the spoils and remained unbeaten at home in Sky Bet League Two. 

Ridehalgh, however, admitted his frustration at the result and believes City deserved more than a point based on the number of chances they created. 

He said: “Obviously, we were disappointed as we created enough chances to win the game.  

“After Barrow took the lead, they sat deep and were difficult to break down, but we still managed to create enough opportunities in that time. 

“We want to win every game we play in but, sometimes, it is not possible, and you have to make sure you do not lose. 

“We are having the chances to win football matches and hopefully, that will come soon enough.” 

Despite his disappointment, the 30-year-old is confident the Bantams will soon return to winning ways, should they keep performing as they are. 

City have now had over 50 attempts at goal in their past three league outings, and Ridehalgh believes there is not too much in City's play which must change. 

He added: “At the end of the day, we are creating the chances and I would be more worried if we were not. 

“Nothing needs to change other than the fact we just need to start putting the ball in the back of the net.

“It would not have been an unfair reflection if we camw away with a 4-1 victory, because we had that many good chances.”

The Bantams are back in action against Manchester United Under-21s on Tuesday, in the Papa John's Trophy. CLICK HERE to purchase tickets.
