Graham Alexander was pleased with how his side responded to being down 2-0 at half-time, to battle back and gain a point in a 2-2 draw against Morecambe at the University of Bradford Stadium.

The Bantams boss praised the spirit his side showed, clawing back a two-goal deficit in the second half, admitting their performance in the second 45 was much improved. 

“I was really pleased with the team's response,” he said.

“We had a much better performance in the second half. We scored two good goals, and we could have had more.

“Our second-half performance was miles better than our first-half performance.

“On another day, we could of grabbed a winning goal, but I have to be pleased with the response the side gave. I was really happy with that.

“We showed in the second half that we have the confidence to go out and score the goals we did, showing that the belief is high within the side. They believe in each other.”

Alexander was elated with the Bantams faithful and how they supported their side throughout the game, even when things were not going their way in the first 45 minutes. He was pleased City gave their supporters a performance they deserved in the second half. 

He is looking ahead to Friday’s evening encounter at the University of Bradford Stadium where the Bantams welcome league leaders Stockport County, stating the team who sacrifices the most will come away with the most points over a busy festive period. 

“(The fans) were massive for us today,” Alexander added.

“The team has built that belief up with the fans over this latest run we have had. They see a team that is committed and they helped massively in that second half.

“They supported us and were patient with us and we gave them what they deserved in the second half.

“We gave them a proper performance, a fully committed one. If we could have grabbed a winner, the roof would have come off.

“Each game, the players learn more about each other, and how they respond to different scenarios.

“The team that shows the most dedication and the most sacrifice over this busy period will come out of it with the most points.

“Ahead of Friday, we have to look after ourselves. By doing that, that will give us the best chance of winning.”
