Bantams boss Derek Adams admitted his side “have to be better at finding the goal”, following this afternoon”s 2-0 defeat at Harrogate Town. 

City created numerous opportunities at the EnviroVent Stadium, but left empty handed thanks to a second-half double from Jack Diamond. 

Adams was encouraged by his side’s performance in the amount of chances they created, though again vented his frustration at the lack of clinical edge. 

He said: “We just have to be better in finding the goal. The players the ball has fallen to have not been able to put the ball in the back of the net. 

“The number of chances created, especially in the first half, has been the story of the season - purely because of more opportunities than the opposition. 

“We probably should have been ahead by a couple of goals at half-time. There was only one side in the first half, and that was us. 

“We have not taken the chances, and that has been the story of the season.”

The Scot was adamant his side were the better of the two in North Yorkshire, and deserved to leave Wetherby Road with more than what they did. 

He insists City will continue to work hard, ahead of Tuesday’s trip to Stevenage. 

Adams added: “I thought we deserved a lot more than we got. We conceded a deflected goal and from a mistake, to make it 2-0. 

“I do not think we deserved to lose the game. We were the better side of the day because we created the better opportunities.

“We played really well in large spells of the game. We dominated most of the match and created opportunities to get a goal and shots on target. 

“Their goalkeeper was their man of the match. He made some outstanding saves. I think, from our point of view, it is important as a team that we continue to work hard.”
