Derek Adams was delighted with his side's battling nature, following last night's 2-1 win at Walsall.
The Bantams won at the Banks's Stadium late on, thanks to an Andy Cook goal from the penalty spot.
Adams' side were made to grind out a performance to secure the three points, and City's fight and determination impressed their manager.
He said: “It was a performance where we had to grind it out. It was a very difficult night and a tough game.
“It was not free-flowing football and there were not a lot of chances in the match.
“It looked like it was going to be a draw, but we were able to get that one more goal to get the three points, which we were delighted with.”
The City chief started three of his January signings with goalkeeper Alex Bass impressing on his debut for the Bantams.
Matty Daly also netted his first goal for the club in the first half, and Adams continues to be pleased by the impact his January recruits are having.
He added: “I am delighted for Matt Daly to get his first goal, and for Andy Cook to get another.
“Matty took his chance well and scored an important goal.
“Tonight, we also gave Alex Bass his debut. He made a number of really good saves in the first half, and were delighted with his performance.”
