Graham Alexander was proud of the way his team reacted to going a goal down early on as they came back to win 3-1 at Doncaster Rovers.

The City boss expected a challenge when their hosts broke the deadlock after seven minutes, but commended the postive response from his side.

“I am delighted with the players once again,” he said.

“We have had a lot going our way in the previous games, especially scoring the first goal.

“So, we knew at some point we would face a challenge like we did in terms of going a goal down early on.

“I was intrigued to see how the team would respond when it did happen. The response I saw was absolutely fantastic.

“I did not see any of the players take a step back, we just carried on with the game and our plan.

“That is a massive sign of the progress we have made with this group.”

The Bantams' dangerous strike partnership of Andy Cook and Tyler Smith have now both hit double figures in goals this season.

Alexander is happy with the work they are doing and wants it to continue.

“It was a difficult game for Andy (Cook) and Tyler (Smith),” he added.

“I thought their centre-halves made it difficult for them.

“Cooky got us off the mark with a great set-piece header.

“The connection between the two for the second was great.

“And the third goal was a fantastic sweeping move with both strikers involved, with a great finish at the end.

“It is important those guys up front keep racking up the numbers.”
