Kevin McDonald was happy to "end a good week" with three points, as City claimed a third-successive win in their 1-0 victory over AFC Wimbledon at the Cherry Red Records Stadium.

The caretaker player-manager recognised that their the performance was not perfect, but insisted the Bantams can take confidence from grinding out the victory to learn from their mistakes.

“We are pleased with the result,” he said.

“There were things we could have done better, for sure, and we will work on that.

“We had to keep going until the end and we can be proud of the character.

“It is pleasing to get three points and end a good week.

“The first 15 minutes, we did very well. We had some great possession, and won the ball back in some valuable positions.

“We did lose our grip, and we got caught up in our play in the first half.

“We need at times to be a little simpler, and get the ball from midfield to attack a lot easier.

“We go home now on a high, and we can learn from our mistakes, so it is a good three points.”

The Scot continued his praise of the Bantams’ performance, and was personally proud of the game management. 

With a week until City’s next outing against Wrexham, McDonald is looking forward to relaxing, but admitted the belief in the camp is high, and only good things can come from personal confidence. 

“We are pleased to be able to come here and grind out a win, and understand what is required,” he added.

“The confidence is great at the minute, given the week we have had.

“I would rather win a 1-0 than a 4-3. It shows that you worked well defensively and in controlling the game.

“It is pleasing for me, and I hope it is pleasing for the boys, who have worked their socks off today.

“It will be nice to have a break and relax.

“It has been so relentless. It has been chaotic at times, but a good chaos.

“It is about believing. You have to believe in what you are doing, if we can all do that, we can achieve things.”
