Daniel Oyegoke looked to take positives out of City's performance against higher-tier opposition, as the Bantams were knocked out of the Carabao Cup after a 2-0 defeat to Sky Bet Championship side Middlesbrough.
Despite the defeat to Michael Carrick's Boro, the versatile defender believes there are lessons he and his teammates can take from last night's game, and that can help them take a "step in the right direction".
“Although it was a loss, I think it was a positive day at the office,” he said.
“We played a team with a lot of quality. They have some very good players who can play through the lines, and create us problems.
“I thought we dealt with that fairly well, but in the end their quality shone through.
“We worked really hard and ran for each other, and although it was a loss, it is a step in the right direction.”
The Brentford loanee has played in multiple positions already during his time at City, and last night found himself in the centre of midfield, enjoying the change of scenery.
“I enjoyed it today (in midfield),” he added.
“I think I broke up play quite well, as well as trying to create attacks.
“There is a lot of experience I can learn from, especially in midfield.
“We have a great bunch of lads, they all help me in so many ways.
“I just love to play. Whenever I am on the pitch, I am happy.”
