CITY were disappointed to take only a draw from Wycombe, admitted David Hopkin.

The Bantams had the better opportunities in a dour goalless clash at Adams Park – and were livid not to win a penalty for hand ball when home defender Curtis Thompson kept Eoin Doyle’s shot off the line.

Hopkin said: “It’s a tough place to come. I don’t think Wycombe get enough credit because they have got good players.

“They play to their strengths and we always knew it was going to be a set-play that could cause us problems.

“But you could tell from the mood in the dressing room that the lads were disappointed not to win it.

“That shows how far we’ve come in the last three or four months that we’re starting to believe and think we can take points at difficult venues.”

The major talking point came midway through the half with Thompson’s goalline block but ref Tom Bramall waved away City’s strong shouts.

“I’ve just seen the penalty incident and the lad clearly uses his hand,” added Hopkin. “Eoin’s also got to score with a header just before half-time.

“But we needed to make sure we stayed focused and didn’t give away any corners or free-kicks in silly areas.

“Towards the end, we put ourselves under pressure a couple of times by not clearing our lines. But I’m delighted with the clean sheet.

“We could have done better with our chances and come away with the three points. But this could be a big point come the end of the season.

“We just lacked that bit of intensity in the final third of the pitch.

“Wycombe don’t give you much and we still managed to make three or four chances where we should have scored.”
