Bantams goalkeeper Harry Lewis received praise for his recovery against Tranmere, despite a blunder that drew attention to City’s manager, Mark Hughes.

In the 2-1 defeat at Prenton Park, Lewis was at fault for the first goal, leading to calls from away fans for Hughes to be sacked.

However, Lewis redeemed himself in the second half with an impressive save from Connor Jennings and a crucial stop of Josh Hawkes’ penalty.

Hughes acknowledged Lewis’s individual error but also highlighted his exceptional saves.

He expressed his confidence in Lewis, emphasizing that the goalkeeper had frequently come to the team’s rescue since joining the club.

Andy Cook’s early second-half goal leveled the score, and Hughes praised the team’s performance, noting their intent and dominance in the first half.

Despite losing back-to-back matches for the first time in the season and only winning once in their last six league games, Hughes remained positive about the team’s abilities.

He acknowledged that they were facing a challenging period but stressed that the team was strong and had the potential to make an impact in the league.
