BRADFORD City's joint interim manager Mark Trueman was delighted to guide the Bantams to a 3-1 win at rock bottom Southend.

The victory made it seven matches unbeaten since Trueman and Conor Sellars took charge.

And Trueman was thrilled to bag an important result which moved City up to 18th in the standings.

“I’m delighted to get the three points,” said Trueman.

“It was a big game for us and it takes us further away from the relegation zone.

“We showed we can be adaptable with how we can play but we’re disappointed with the goal we gave away.

“We spoke about more players getting forwards and we did that on the counter-attack well in the second half.

“Danny Rowe is off the mark which is great and Gareth Evans got two himself.

“We know his qualities because we see them every day in training.

“But the more games he gets the more goals he will create and score.

“We need to add more goals though and we’ve worked on that so it was good to get three here along with the three points.”
