BANTAMS’ VISION FOR SUCCESS
NATHAN Clarke has admitted a promotion vision is building within the Bradford City squad as they look to take their recent run of form into the rest of the season.
The Bantams were unbeaten in ten games at the start of the weekend, and were hoping to set a club record of six consecutive league clean sheets at Walsall yesterday.
Centre-half Clarke reached the play-off final with Leyton Orient two years ago, and insists a similar spirit is developing at Valley Parade.
“The mentality has to be one vision and we have a group who believe in each other,” he said.
“When I was at Orient and got to the play-off final, it was exactly the same.
“When you go to clubs, you get on together but once in a good run of form you can sense that something is building.”
The 32-year-old signed for City in the summer, and is enjoying getting the opportunity to impress.
“We have been pushing each other along and fitnesswise I’ve felt really good,” he added.
“I was just waiting for that chance and I’m happy to have contributed.”
Clarke revealed the squad had a recent team meeting to re-focus their season, and insists the time has come for them to truly launch their promotion campaign.
“We feel we have a good squad that is all fighting for each other,” he said. “That has got us this far so why take our foot off the gas?
“We are quietly confident in our squad and the togetherness is brilliant.
“We want to go further and really push on in the league.”
