A 'goosed' Andy Cook was "buzzing" to get back to winning ways, after helping City to a 2-0 win at the home of Sky Bet League Two leaders, Forest Green Rovers.
The Bantams’ top goal-scorer ran from inside his own half deep into injury time to slot into an empty net, left vacant by Luke McGee who had gone forward for the corner.
Cook leapt into the travelling crowd having broken his personal goal duck, and after the game described a feeling of "relief".
City's No.9 said: “It was just a massive relief. I do not know how I did not get booked for jumping in the crowd.
“Did you see how far I ran? I was goosed, but I really needed that goal.
“I have been working hard, as have all the lads, and I am just so happy to get off the mark after a frustrating few weeks in front of goal.
“I am buzzing. Buzzing with the goal and buzzing with the win. The lads are all over the moon.”
Cook's strike was his first under Mark Hughes, and the frontman suggested his new boss is the ideal manager for a striker.
Hughes netted close to 250 professional goals throughout in his career and Cook believes his influence will only make him hungrier for the net.
He said: “I hope I am impressing the boss.
“I am running around and closing players down but, as a striker, you are judged on one thing and one thing alone: scoring goals.
“I needed my goal today, and hopefully I impressed again.
“Hopefully, we can carry on playing like this. You can see how well we play when we pass it around. I think it is effective and long may it continue.”
