Stuart McCall took Bradford to Wigan with the intention of having a go, which is exactly what he felt his side did and this led to a deserved three points being secured at the DW Stadium on Saturday.

Charlie Wyke scored his eighth goal of another productive campaign early in the first half to put City ahead.

Having managed to clear a Sam Morsy effort off the line, Wigan weren’t denied ahead of the half hour when Chey Dunkley drew the host level.

Jamie Jones’ finger tips did enough to help Wyke’s header onto the crossbar as City looked to regain the lead, which was taken at the death when substitute Tyrell Robinson’s added time winner secured the Bantams a 2-1 win.

Commenting post-match, McCall was quoted by the Yorkshire Post: ‘I’m very proud of the teams effort. It was a fantastic goal to win it. We came here to have a go and we did just that. We know we’re a good side and we needed to play at our best today. We got what we deserved, it’s a great win.’

McCall went on to say he knows he had ‘a good group of players who are behind each other’ but they’ll not get it right every week so he was pleased to show that ‘last week was a blip’ when City were beaten.

As for the winner, the boss was delighted for Robinson and has backed him to further push forward his claims for a starting place in the weeks ahead, which he’s been threatening as it is.

He said: ‘It’s a dream strike by Tyrell. I’m so pleased for the fans, it’s a great way to win any game. Tyrell has been pushing to start over the last few weeks.’
