TONY Mowbray expressed his disappointment at not being able to come away from Bradford with all three points after being made to settle for a 0-0 draw on Tuesday evening.

Both sides had chances to win the match in what was a highly entertaining goalless draw at Valley Parade, with Adam Armstrong striking the post for the visitors in the first half, while young goalkeeper Reice Charles-Cook made a series of exceptional saves.

The point sees the Sky Blues extend their unbeaten record in the league to ten matches and keeps them top of the table ahead of this weekend’s clash at home to Doncaster.

“We’re a bit disappointed with the result,” said Mowbray. “ I think it was as good as we’ve played all season really and played some good football at times.

“I think we controlled the game and where they had one or two isolated moments, we took the sting out of the occasion really well.

“We made sure we had a lot of the ball and the defence dealt with their directness really well. A lot of players had to be strong and I thought we dealt with them really well.

“Aaron Martin and Ben Turner did the job they were supposed to and Bigirimana gave us a real level of control in the game. His passing and link play was really important to us today.”

“We’re pleased enough. I thought we did enough to win the game but you’d take a point and it keeps us unbeaten for ten games now which gives us a solid platform.

“Like I’ve said previously, we don’t look at the table. It’s all about building the points up as much as possible and the momentum comes with it.

“We’ve got another difficult game against Doncaster on Saturday and it represents another really good chance to continue the run we’re on.”
