Mark Hughes admitted his side did not put in their best performance, as they were held to a goalless draw at Crawley Town on Good Friday. 

City left the Broadfield Stadium with a point, as both teams cancelled each other out in West Sussex, despite City creating chances in both halves. 

The Bantams boss praised the travelling support over the Bank Holiday weekend, as over 800 fans made the trip to Crawley, and wishes the team could have rewarded their support with three points.

He said: “I think, on reflection, we all need to be happy with a point. It was not our best performance, it was a bitty game.

“The surface was a bit dry, a bit bobbly, and that maybe affected the quality from both sides.

“I expected us to have more care in our play, and as a consequence we did not play at the level we can play at.

“With the chances we created, we should have won the game. On another day, we would have taken one of those and came away with a win.

“We came down last night, it was a hard trip. We were hit with a tropical storm on the way down.

“So, for our fans to come out today and support the team, we would have liked to send them home with the three points.”

The Welshman has challenged his side to bounce back once again after today’s draw, and with Monday’s game against Sutton representing a quick turnaround, Hughes wants his players to get three points back at the University of Bradford Stadium.

Hughes added: “Crawley are not on a bad run. After last weekend, you can see they had a reaction today.

“They have picked up some good points and some good wins lately, but today, we did not do what we needed to do to pick up the three points.

“On Monday we go again. We will be looking to get those three points.

“We are disappointed we did not show our qualities today, but on Monday against Sutton, we will be better.”
