Jamie Walker revealed his personal pride in scoring the winning goal, after the Bantams came from behind to beat second-placed Stevenage in Sky Bet League Two yesterday.

After spending much of the campaign on the sidelines, Walker was particularly pleased with his and City’s performance in the second half as they returned to winning ways on the road.

City’s No.10 praised the Bantams’ bravery in the and admitted the mood in the dressing room “is buzzing”.

He said: “It has been a stop-start season for me, so it feels immense to achieve what we did.

“I had my knee injury, a bit of illness and then, unfortunately, I got suspended, so it is a great feeling to be back.

“Not many teams leave here with anything, so I am very happy with my goal and performance.

“There are not many better feelings in football than when you score, and to do it in front of a packed away end makes it so much better.

“Hopefully, I can carry on this good form, and get another goal on Tuesday, and we can get the three points again.

“I am buzzing with the result. The changing room is delighted.

“It is a very good feeling knowing we are only the second team to leave here with three points.

“It is tough place to come when they are putting long balls in your box, but it is a great three points.

“We had to be a little bit more brave on the ball in the second half.

“We scored three great goals on the back of that, so the mood has definitely changed. We are delighted.”

The Scotsman highlighted the Bantams' individual character on and off the pitch, as players like Liam Ridehalgh returned to the 11 and impressed. Walker believes the mental resilience will only aid City.

The midfielder has called for more brave performances ahead of City's two upcoming home fixtures against Tranmere Rovers and Barrow.

“The individual character today just shows how much quality we have,” he added.

“(Ryan) Easty came in last week and did fantastic, and our captain came back today and was great.

“Rides was fantastic too, in defence, and it just shows how driven and hard-working we are.

“We have got big characters here, and that is a very good attribute for the squad to have.

“It is what we need to take us further up the table. We can definitely take this momentum into our next two games.

“If we keep playing our way, and be a lot braver in our play, we will not be too far away from success.”
