Jamie Walker feels there are positives to take from yesterday’s Emirates FA Cup defeat at the hands of Sky Bet League One side Wycombe Wanderers.

City fell 2-1 despite a spirited second-half fightback, after finding themselves 2-0 down at half-time.

Despite defeat, Walker was proud of the performance against higher opposition, and felt the Bantams could have got more from the game.

“We have to take the positives from the game,” he said,

“We came up against a good League One side and held our own.

“If we play like that in our league, I am sure we will get the results that we want.

“It has not been an easy few weeks, there has been a lot of change at the club.

“But, I think the way we were able to perform here says a lot about the group.”

The Scot could not hide his frustration and disappointment at defeat, admitting the players were desperate to advance to round two. 

“We are obviously disappointed,” he added.

“We wanted to progress in this competition and, unfortunately, we have not been able to do that.

“The lads created a lot of chances and I thought we played well.

“But, the two goals in the first half gave us a mountain to climb.

“They are a good League One side, so we knew it was going to be a tough game.

“Overall, it was quite a good performance but we are disappointed to be out of the cup.”
