Matty Platt was frustrated to not pick up maximum points against Crewe Alexandra yesterday, having dominated possession against their visitors. 

City were held to a goalless draw by the Railwaymen, though rarely appeared troubled at the back throughout the contest. 

Platt feels City need to improve with their possession but is proud that, after late defeats to Barrow and Colchester United, the Bantams’ game management and composure has bagged them an extra point in Sky Bet League Two.

He said: “I feel frustrated, really. We dominated the game but could not find that goal. The problem is we did not create too many clear-cut chances, so we have to improve.

“We have been guilty of conceding late recently, and with a couple set-pieces towards the end, there was a bit of pressure.

“We saw the ending out though so we can take something from that. It is that old saying: if you do not win, you make sure not to lose, so we can take a lot from that.”

The Bantams have two home games against Sheffield Wednesday in the Papa John’s Trophy and Walsall in the league on the horizon, and Platt admitted he enjoys the hectic schedule as it allows the squad to improve and iron out the weaker areas of their play.

“We all want to keep on improving and doing the right things,” the towering defender added. 

“The gaffer likes what we are doing and we were unfortunate for not taking that goal we needed.

“We can take that into this week. We have two tough matches against sides who have started well, and we know we need to do.

“I am looking forward to next two matches and hopefully, with our fans behind us, we can get some positive results for them.”
