CITY boss Stuart McCall hailed his side's resilience after they ended another unbeaten home run in a 1-0 win against Shrewsbury.

After being the first team to beat Wigan on their own patch last week, the Bantams ended Shrews' run after Toto Nsiala put through his own net shortly after the break.

McCall said: "It is a fantastic result. They are top of the league for a reason.

"They are really hard to play against - fit and strong.

"It was a different game to the Wigan one. It was big pitch and we wanted to get the ball down and play but they were stopping us.

"They play 4-1-4-1 which is a defensive set-up but they did it well.

"We had some decent moments in first half but we said at half-time we had to focus because one goal was going to win it.

"We defended really well at a tough place to come so I am naturally delighted.

"Today was always going to be about being dogged, resilient, hardworking and doing your job. We did the dirty stuff well."
