Graham Alexander was delighted with how his side again overcame adversity and left Barrow with all three points.

City snatched victory thanks to a late Tyler Smith goal in the 90th minute, having been pegged back to 1-1 just before the hour mark.

The win kept the Bantams' play-off hopes alive ahead of Saturday, something Alexander hopes his side can achieve.

“We are delighted to get the three points,” he said after the game.

“Everyone put their best foot forward, from the starting XI, to subs. It was a really pleasing evening.

“It was a great finish from Tyler. Massive pressure to keep our season alive, but he was as cool as you like - great finish.

“In a season, you go through the ringer. The players dug deep, they put everything into the game.

“There were brilliant scenes at the end with the supporters and the players. Let's go again on Saturday.”

The Bantams boss was pleased with how his side responded to adversity, after leading the game and being dragged back, but ultimately coming away with all three points.

He feels this shows the progression of the players this season, and he wants them to continue their positive run of form on Saturday against Newport.

“In a season, you have to fight adversity,” Alexander added.

“It shows progress from the players. We have shown over the last six games what we are about.

“You only gain those tools by going through the experiences we have. The subs came on, and they had a great impact.

“I do not want to judge when there is one game to go, I want to go into that game with the same consistent message.

“There will be a time to look back on the season and look forward to next season, and we will try our best to put in another good performance on Saturday.”
