LEWIS HOPING TO BUILD ON SHOOT-OUT SUCCESS

After saving the decisive spot-kick in last night's shoot-out, City's penalty hero Harry Lewis hopes yesterday's performance is one the team can “build on top of”.

City progressed to the third round of the Carabao Cup after defeating Wrexham 4-3 on penalties after the game finished 1-1 after 90 minutes, and Lewis was pleased to have booked their place in round three.

“We came here with a clear goal; getting to the next round of the cup, and we did that,” he said.

“It was not necessarily the prettiest win, but we achieved what we set out to achieve.

“We won on Saturday, and we take the win away tonight so hopefully we can build on top of that.

“Winning two penalty shoot-outs in a row really shows the character of this group.”

In what proved a physical battle at STōK Cae Ras, with set-pieces decisive for both sides, the Bantams' No.1 believed City coped well with managing with the Welsh outfit's threats.

“We knew what to expect coming to Wrexham,” he added.

“They are very direct and have a lot of height in their team.

“They were always going to be a threat from set-pieces because of their physicality.

“To concede from a set piece is very disappointing, but aside from that I thought we managed their threat the best we could.”
