Derek Adams spoke of his pride after The Bantams came from behind to beat in-form Salford City.

A dominant display from city side put the Ammies to the sword, despite a first-half opening goal from Brandon Thomas-Asante.

Adams praised his side's relentless pursuit of three points as City won on their return to The Utilita Energy Stadium - in their first game there for five weeks.

He said: “The players have got to take a lot of credit for breaking them down. You want teams to attack you so there is space to play into, but Salford did not have many in the second half.

“It is always very difficult when you have got a team sitting in a 4-4-1 formation. It is not easy to open them up.

“It is two wins in the last three games and still only one home league defeat this season.

“We are a very competitive team in this league and are not far away from getting the wins that will put us in a much better position.”

The Bantams were roared onto victory by another passionate home support, and the Bantams boss was quick to highlight the impact their presence had.

Adams acknowledged the expectations of the City faithful, and insisted that his side are capable of moving up the table with a run of victories.

He added: “The home supporters come here to see their team win football matches, and we have sent them home happy tonight.

“They showed the players what it means to play for Bradford City.

“It was important to get the three points against a team close to us in the league. We have closed the gap between ourselves and a number of teams with that victory.

“We have moved up four places. It was a huge result.”
