CITY were warned that there is still a big job to do after climbing out of last place in League One for the first time in nearly two months.

Today’s 4-0 win over Walsall at Valley Parade – watched by owner Stefan Rupp - lifted the Bantams up two places in the relegation zone.

But David Hopkin urged a word of caution as they celebrated the club’s biggest win since beating Rochdale by the same score in November 2016.

The Bantams boss said: “It’s never nice when you’re bottom of the league and it was our aim to get off it.

“But we’re still not out of it and we’ve done nothing yet.

“We need to make sure the players start to believe and work harder – and they will do that if you are winning games.

“The fitness levels are coming and we just kept going and going. We’ve been trying so hard to get a result and it was only a matter of time.

“I’m happy that the Bradford fans are seeing us hopefully turning a corner now.”

Paul Caddis fired City in front at half-time before they took control with a second-half double from David Ball and a first goal since October for Eoin Doyle.

Hopkin added: “It was good to see Eoin get a goal. He’s been working extremely hard and I’m delighted for him.

“It’s a fantastic boost for everybody and the fans. Everyone needs to come together now and push away from where we are in the league.”

Lewis O'Brien gave another outstanding display in City's midfield which defied the difficult conditions on an afternoon played entirely in freezing rain.

"He's a young man with a bright future," said Hopkin.

"Players who want to go on and play at the top look after themselves away from football and how they prepare for a game.

"You could see today with his energy levels and everything he did in the game was top class. He'll make mistakes and learn from them but he's a fantastic level-headed kid."
