Jonathan Tomkinson dissected a “professional” performance in last night’s Bristol Street Motors Trophy round of 32 victory over Liverpool Under-21s.

The centre-half was proud of another dominant display against another young Premier League outfit, insisting the Bantams have "made a real point".

He described the positive changes City have made tactically, and was happy to have contributed to the direct style through Tyler Smith's opening goal.

“We always want to win every game, so to be in the next round is really exciting for us,” he said.

“It was a really professional performance. Having done that against Manchester City’s under-21s as well, we have made a real point.

“We imposed ourselves really well and dominated both games, so we can be very proud of that.

“I think (the style) suits the whole team a lot more. We have had a change in formation and the manager has been imposing his tactics really well.

“We have been told to be more direct and that applies to everyone, everywhere.

“I am always happy to contribute to goals, and the victory as a whole.”

The Norwich City loanee has been working hard to get into the first team and is hoping to use last night's victory as a personal foundation to build from.

He lastly discussed City’s Bristol Street Motors Trophy ambitions and how much he would like to lift the trophy, but knows “we have to take it one game at a time”.

He added: “I have been trying hard to get into the first team - I would really like that.

“It has been challenging, but hopefully I am getting there each day at a time.

“We would like to go win (the competition) if we can. We know we have to take it one game at a time.

“By staying focused and remaining consistent, we will take each games as it comes.”
