CITY'S 2-0 win at Rochdale this afternoon was a “massive” one according to assistant boss Steve Parkin.

Goals in the second half from Jason Kennedy and James Hanson lifted the Bantams into fourth spot – two points off leaders Peterborough.

Parkin saluted the performance which followed hot on the heels of Wednesday’s dramatic Capital One Cup victory against Leeds.

He said: “It could have been a sticky fixture for us coming to a team that are full of energy and attacking prowess.

“But I thought the lads were resolute in the first half without creating a great deal. Defensively we looked sound and solid.

“Then we got the early goal in the second half and that changed the game. The lads felt ten feet tall after that while they were a bit despondent.

“It’s a massive win that keeps us ticking over on the back of the efforts and emotions of Wednesday night.”

Was a huge win. Would've been so easy to go out there and be complacent after Wednesday but these lads dug deep, and well done to the management for keeping their feet on the ground!! CTID
