Mark Hughes was delighted to earn his first win as Bantams boss, after his side took all three points from table-topping Forest Green Rovers.

City scored twice in the second half of a cagey affair to earn their first victory of the Hughes era, with goals from Callum Cooke and Andy Cook earning the spoils.

The Bantams manager spoke of his pride in being able to celebrate victory, at a tough place to travel. 

He said: “We came to the league leaders and took maximum points. We are delighted.

“I thought it was important we got something from the game after last week when the lads did not get any reward.

“That was different today, we got maximum points at a difficult place.

“I am not going to put any criticism towards the lads, I thought they were excellent.”

Despite the 190-mile distance between Bradford and Gloucester, City were backed by a near-600 strong crowd, who were able to celebrate the victory before the long journey home.

Hughes was quick to praise the effort the fans went to for their team and hoped the win would sweeten the journey home.

He added: “It is a long, long way, we know that ourselves.

“We were on the coach for four hours yesterday. It is a long trek to get here, but I like to think we made it worth their while.

“It was a great support once again and if we keep winning, keep scoring goals we will retain that support which is very important to us.”
