BRADFORD City Development coach, Mark Trueman has hailed his under 18s 'terrific' performance as they needed extra time to beat Carlisle 3-2 in the second round of the FA Youth Cup.

A 128th minute winner from under-16 starlet Harvey Rowe sealed the win for City at Brunton Park after goals from Kian Scales and Daniel Francis had forced the tie into the addition period.

Trueman believes the victory will live long in the memory of his young squad but thinks they can not allow themselves to lose focus as they face an even bigger task in the next round.

He said: "The game was terrific in terms of character and desire. For the players to keep going until the end was great.

"The lads kept upping the effort through to extra time and for an under-16 coming on and grabbing the winner, it was brilliant.

"These sorts of fixtures create memories for the lads which they will remember forever.

"I do not want to feel like a party pooper, but the hard work starts now.

"Obviously, the players have got to enjoy the win but they have to keep working harder.

"Games like this show football can be special.

"The players should enjoy the win and their following day off, but then it is back to work and concentrating on the next game."

"The challenge will be even tougher - against Stoke City - in the next round, as well as the game this weekend."

Trueman's men will now host category one side Stoke in the third round of the competition.

He added: "We need to be prepared for not being with the ball as much as we like. We are obviously a possession-based team.

"But, when you are playing against category one and two clubs, you expect them to keep the ball better when they regain it."So, we are going to have to be better without possession but we will just keep implementing our game.

"We are not struggling for goals so we will just have to keep building on our performances and keep working on our philosophy."
