Harry Pritchard was pleased to have returned from injury - in a 0-0 midweek draw at Colchester United. 

The Bantams were made to settle for a point at the JobServe Community Stadium - in Pritchard's first appearance since before Christmas. 

The 27-year-old - who came on as a second-half substitute - believes the team reacted well from Saturday's draw against Scunthorpe United. 

The midfielder stated: “It was a good performance. If you put that into perspective, I think the players adapted well from the last result.

“To do well away from home against Colchester is great and we are happy to come away with the point. 

“The draw was against Scunthorpe was disappointing, especially after being two goals up. 

“But, we showed our character to come down here and get a point - against a team who are hard to beat at home. 

“I thought we were solid at the back and dealt with the pressure well. Maybe we should have taken our chances, but we dust ourselves off and go again.

The No.7 - who was delighted to be back on the pitch - was also confident results will improve and draws will turn into wins. 

Pritchard added: “It is always nice to get back out onto the pitch. Missing six games was a disappointment for me, when the games are coming thick and fast. 

“But, I am happy to be back now. I am sharp and ready to start if the manager needs me to. 

"Obviously, it would have been nice to have won the game when I came on. But, the victories will come and we will start to climb up the table. 

“There are a lot of good teams in this league - whether you play at home or away.

"But, if we play as well as we did against Colchester and take our chances, those draws will turn into wins.” 

Over 1,300 supporters are set to travel to Mansfield Town this Saturday, with the club awaiting a second allocation of tickets.
