Lee Angol credited City's character and mentality to again secure a second-half winner in yesterday's victory at Harrogate Town.
Tyreik Wright’s neat finish in the 73rd minute, assisted by substitute Angol's defence-splitting pass, secured all three points for the Bantams.
City’s No.7 was pleased to have again played an important role from the bench in extending the Bantams' unbeaten run to seven matches.
He said: “In honesty, it was one of those wins where we did not feel like we played to the best of our ability.
“At times, we had to dig deep, grind it out and win ugly. While it might not have been pretty to watch, we did what was necessary to win, and that is a credit to the team’s character and mentality.”
Angol also discussed his hunger to make an impact on the game, after impressing in the second half of last weekend's draw at home to AFC Wimbledon.
He added: “As a sub, you want to come on and make a difference. My first thought was to look to find the winning goal, and we achieved that.
“I could see Tyreik making a run on my left. I timed my pass well and had every confidence he would be clinical in front of goal.
“With the flexibility of my role, I often find myself in the pockets picking up the ball, trying to create chances.
“If I am not scoring, I want to create chances. As long as I am doing one of those, I am happy.
“There is so much strength in depth within this squad. Anyone can make the starting 11. There is a good energy around the squad and the overall strength of our foundations.
“There is healthy competition for places but, regardless of who gets the goal, whether it is Andy Cook or Vadaine Oliver, we just want to do well collectively. An individual’s success is the team’s success.
“I am delighted we got the win, and were able to send our supporters home happy.”
