Bristol City boss Gary Johnson had no complaints after seeing his side's promotion charge slowed by a 3-2 home defeat at the hands of Bradford City.
The Robins took an early lead through Phil Jevons, but were then run ragged by a Bantams side struggling to ward off the threat of relegation.
Johnson told the Evening Post: "It is now up to us to recover from this but we can't say we were unlucky.
"We didn't play well enough to say we were unlucky. It was poor.
"We started quite brightly and got our goal, but didn't get our second and the longer it went on the less effective we got.
We have no complaints about the result. On the night Bradford did well tactically against us and our quality wasn't there.
"We live to fight another day and we will do. We still have a fantastic home record, one of the best in the league."
