Yates upbeat despite defeat
Cheltenham manager Mark Yates refused to be too downbeat after his side's 3-1 defeat at Bradford in League Two on Saturday.
Nahki Wells, City's leading scorer with nine goals, scored twice at Valley Parade - one from the penalty spot in first-half injury time - before James Meredith put the seal on victory with a third goal seven minutes from time.
It all came after Robins skipper Marlon Pack had opened the scoring for a Cheltenham side unbeaten in their previous six going into the encounter.
"For 48-and-a-half minutes, I was the happiest man in the world. We had defended manfully and then one moment of madness took the game away from us slightly when we gave away the penalty, but we didn't fold in the second half," said Yates, who also felt his side ought to have had a second penalty of their own.
"We created chances and we stood up to a team who played to their strengths. Bradford have got good players, a big ground, a big budget.
"Despite the defeat, there were some really good performances and lots of positives so let's move on and go again."
