Dion Pereira feels the blame for yesterday's defeat to Bristol Rovers lies solely at City’s door. 

Pereira netted his first professional goal in the fixture, giving the Bantams the lead within a minute of the second half kicking off, but the game ended in defeat for the West Yorkshire side.

The No.29 attributed the loss to a poor performance and argued there is no excuse for losing. 

He said: “We did well to get the first goal. We defended well in the first half but we obviously lost the game. 

“They are a very good footballing side. They are doing well in the league but at the end of the day, we only have to look at ourselves.

“In our heads we can beat anyone. Today just was not our day and, unfortunately, for the fans who travelled it is a disappointment.”

Over 400 City supporters made the 416-mile round trip and bore witness to Pereira’s first goal contribution for the club.

His strike gave the City faithful something to cheer at The Memorial Stadium, and the 23-year-old was quick to acknowledge their dedication.

He continued: “The fans are amazing, they travelled and we did not get the result for them.

“Hopefully next week we can get the reward and the three points they deserve.

“Fans come and watch and they want to see good football but we did not do that today.”
