GRAHAM Alexander felt City’s morale never dipped too much despite their barren league run.

The Bantams claimed their first win in nine attempts by stunning Wrexham at the Racecourse Ground.

Andy Cook’s 14th goal of the season clinched a late victory – their first in League Two since December 22.

“Football tests you and you can go through periods when people will doubt you and criticise,” said Alexander.

“You can’t really come back with anything because it’s about results. It’s about winning.

“But I think the support has been there for the players, although we’ve let them down on a couple of occasions.

“I’ve seen a frustration in the changing room at the one aspect we’re trying to improve. I’ve not seen a lack of belief from the players.

“They have put everything into the training and their games. There was a freshness about us because we knew we had to work exceptionally hard.

“Wrexham are a very good team with an unbelievable home record.

“We tried to set up our team where we knew we had three threats up front all the time. The rest had to cover a lot of ground behind it.

“But at half-time we emphasised why we were playing three up front. It was to go and win the game.”

The Bantams boss praised the noisy backing of the 1,100 away fans – with the volume carrying into the dressing room before the game.

“They came down in numbers and we could hear them deep in the bowels of the changing room because they were right above us.

“That was brilliant and I think that got us all pumped up.

“It’s great to win in that fashion at the end. Wrexham brought on some big guns but took off their top scorer because of how well marshalled he was by our back three.

“There’s a lot more work to go. We know that.

“I hope this result is used as a springboard for the players and there’s a belief there.

“But I didn’t see it drop considerably that much anyway, to be honest.”

City will check on Lewis Richards ahead of the MK Dons game tomorrow after he was forced off in the first half with a facial injury.

Alexander said: “Lewis has got a black eye and a wonky nose.

“It was difficult for him to see out of his left eye. We’ll see how he is.

“There were a few tired bodies from a competitive game but I think everyone else is ready to go again.

“We’re going to have to expend the same amount of energy tomorrow. We’ll have to look at the boys and see how they recover over the weekend.”
