Following a 1-1 draw with Dagenham during the week, the Bantams bounced back with late strikes from James Hanson and Garry Thompson securing the points at Bootham Crescent.

The Bantams are now nine points away from the play-offs with two games in hand over their promotion rivals.

"All three points are big, but as it is a local derby and after the draw on Wednesday, I thought it was a terrific away performance," he said.

"It was very professional on a difficult surface and I thought we were very disciplined and we played well defensively.

"At this stage of the season games aren't going to be too pretty and it's about being strong, committed and disciplined and it does sometimes take seventy five minutes for games to open up. Especially at this stage of the season when there is so much to play for it's great to get the points.

"A win takes us a step closer to where we want to be but the games come thick and fast and we have another one on Tuesday. The squad will be used to its maximum once again because that's important.

"We are a squad pulling in the right direction and we'll battle for every ball and every point until the final whistle on the last game of the season."
