MICHAEL Collins admitted City “weren’t good enough on far too many levels” as they slumped to home defeat against Wycombe.

The Bantams were booed off after a shocking display in the 2-1 loss at Valley Parade.

Substitute Luca Colville’s 90th-minute goal came too late to save them from a third defeat in the first five games.

Collins said: “I’m not going to make any excuses. That wasn’t good enough on far too many levels and it will be quickly addressed.

“There was a real lack of energy in the play, it was very slow and laboured. We have to question why that was the case.

“You give Wycombe the slightest sniff of an opportunity to take something from the game and teams in this division will jump all over it.

“Wycombe deserved the three points but I don’t think they needed to do too much to win it. We tripped ourselves up so there’s a lot to look at going into Monday.”

City had hoped to claim back-to-back home wins after beating Burton 1-0 in midweek. But the head coach felt they played without any intensity and urgency.

Collins added: “The reason we were effective on Tuesday night was that we played the first 45 minutes predominantly in Burton’s half, trying to make things happen.

“Today, we played large spells in our own half moving the ball very slowly and that played into Wycombe’s hands.

“If you don’t start on the front foot, you cause yourself problems and we’ve conceded two very disappointing goals.

“Wycombe came here with the bit between their teeth and it was enough for them to take the three points and deservedly so.”

Collins did praise Jordan Gibson after the teenager came on for a lively display from the bench.

But he said: "It shouldn’t take a 19-year-old footballer, making his fourth competitive appearance, to come on and show everybody else exactly what you should be doing.

“His endeavour and his enthusiasm to get on the ball and show bravery made a big difference to us. But by that point it was too late."

City will monitor the fitness of Sean Scannell after the winger went off with a groin issue.
