Bradford coach Mick Potter praised his players' grit and determination as they put aside doubts over their careers to claim a 30-22 victory over Stobart Super League leaders Wigan.

"I'm very pleased with the players," Potter said. "It's been a tough place to win. It was a fantastic effort.

"It's great for their morale and I'm really happy for fans that came across because they were on a hiding to nothing.

"With the distractions, it is satisfying for them to come out and have a bit of success.

"You can't take anything away from what they've achieved tonight. With a bit of grit and determination, nothing was going to stop them. They were pretty determined to get the result."

Administrator Brendan Guilfoyle, who was among the 19,628 crowd at the DW Stadium, has just a week to find a buyer for the cash-strapped club but Potter remains confident it can be saved.

"It's a fantastic club and you'd like to see them continue," he said. "The only way for them is up.

Invest

"I'm sure there are people out there who want to invest in the club. We just need to get to know who they are and get them on board."

Warriors coach Shaun Wane had no complaints over the result. "We were beaten by the better team, I suppose," he said. "They wanted it a bit more. They had more of a need to win that game.

"With what happened to Micky Mac and losing Darrell Goulding, the changes we made beforehand, losing Sam, I knew it was never going to be an easy game.

"We needed to play well and they were in a desperate situation. Fair play to them, they played better than us.We weren't on our game. This is a blip and we will fix it."
