DAVID Hopkin felt City were worth more after stopping the rot with a 1-1 draw at Peterborough.

The point ended the six-game losing run which sent the Bantams to the bottom of League One.

But Hopkin felt aggrieved with Ivan Toney’s equaliser to the first-half goal from City skipper Anthony O’Connor.

The Bantams boss said: “It was a poor goal to lose and I think everybody thought he was offside. But great credit that we didn’t crumble after that but kept going and managed the game professionally.

“I’m disappointed we’ve lost two points. I’ve seen the goal on the video and he is off – the linesman is nowhere near him.

“But if somebody had said before the game we’d get a point at Peterborough, we would have taken it.

“In months gone by, we’d have probably gone on and lost it. So, from that perspective I’m delighted.”

Hopkin handed an immediate debut to Paul Caddis after the right back signed yesterday for the rest of the season. He was delighted with the 30-year-old’s debut.

He said: “I thought Paul was fantastic for his first 90 minutes. He never gets flustered and showed his experience.

“I asked the players for a performance. We changed the shape slightly because I know they’ve got fantastic wide players and an array of talent that can hurt you.

“Playing with three at the back and two full backs gave us that extra cover and we dealt with everything comfortably. I don’t think Peterborough had a shot on target apart from the goal.

“These are the standards we need to set. It was a different mindset coming here today and I don’t think anybody could begrudge us the point.”

Hopkin also thanked the travelling support - many of whom took advantage of City's offer of free coach travel to the game.

"I thought the fans were fantastic," he added. "It was a great gesture from the club but some probably made their own way down here.

"Hopefully they are seeing a team that is starting to change its mentality."
