Goalscorer Andy Cook lauded the character the Bantams showed, following their comeback victory away to Walsall.

City found themselves 2-0 down inside the opening 16 minutes, but it was Cook who inspired the comeback with the Bantams' first, having a hand in each of his side's three goals.

“We showed great character,” he said.

“It was not the start we wanted, going down 2-0 early on. We did not want that, and our fans certainly did not want that.

“The lads showed great character to come back, and come away with all three points.

“For my goal, Jamie [Walker] put a great ball in, and I converted it. For Jamie’s, Richie [Smallwood] put a great ball in, and I was able to put it back across goal, and he was there to finish.

“[For the third goal] Bobby [Pointon] put a great ball in, my chance got blocked, but it fell to Jamie and he rifled it in.

“There is no better feeling that scoring a goal in front of the travelling away fans.”

City’s No.9 remains focused on ending the season strong, with two matches left, focusing on their task of taking as many points as possible.

Cook is looking forward to heading to Barrow on Tuesday night, a game in which they now enter on the back of five games unbeaten. 

He added: “If we keep winning, you never know. Coming here, we had to do our job. They are in the hunt for play-offs as well - we still have a chance.

“We came here, did what we needed to do, and came away with three points.

“We are ready to go again on Tuesday. After winning games, you cannot wait for the next one - you want to get back out there.

“We just want to put on a good performance and come away with all three points, and make the travelling fans happy. Hopefully we can do that again on Tuesday.”
