Gary Bowyer was happy to send City's away supporters home smiling, following a battling 2-1 victory at Morecambe.

Over 1,700 travelling Bantams saw their team record a first league victory at the Globe Arena since March 2011.

Bowyer was encouraged to have left Lancashire with three points - having insisted Morecambe is never an easy place to visit.

He said: "We were delighted to send an unbelievable away following home happy, again.

"It was a fantastic victory because it is never easy to visit Morecambe and come away victorious.

"You saw how they fought until the death and gave absolutely everything. At the end, they put us under the cosh, a little bit.

"We felt unlucky not be ahead at half-time, with the chances we had created.

"We asked the players to raise the intensity - in the second half - and I think they certainly did that."

Following an improved second-half showing, Bowyer heaped praise on various individuals, including substitute Aramide Oteh.

The forward netted his first goal in City colours from the bench, with the Bantams boss later lauding the impact the 21-year-old made.

Bowyer continued: "We came out of the traps a lot better, in the second half.

"Dylan Connolly and Zeli Ismail showed what they bring to the side - on the wings - and did brilliantly.

"I was delighted for Hope Akpan. He gave his all for us, again, and did really well to get on the end of Dylan’s ball and get another goal.

"Remi has trained ever so well, all week, and we feel he is really starting to come into his own, now.

"He has had to be patient and wait a little while for his opportunity but he scores goals, which he showed - with a great finish."

Bowyer’s Bantams are now gearing up for back-to-back home fixtures against Crawley Town (Saturday October 19) and Port Vale (Tuesday October 22). CLICK HERE to purchase tickets.
