We're going to attack every game

25 February 2013

City boss Phil Parkinson believes his Bantams side still have plenty to look forward to this season after their Capital One Cup Final defeat by Swansea City at Wembley Stadium.

City's rampant Premiership opponents produced a clinical display in Sunday's final to run out clear winners and dash the Bantams' hopes of a dream first League Cup trophy triumph.

Following the heartache of their Wembley defeat, City now quickly turn their thoughts to the final stretch of League 2 games which will take them up to the end of the regular season in April.

Bradford currently find themselves just outside the Play-Off places at present and with games in hand and any cup distractions finally out of the way, Parkinson is confident City can give it a really good push in the league.

The Bantams chief said: "When teams like ourselves with limited resources have good cup runs, it will almost certainly have a detrimental effect on league form.

"We now have 15 games left to go in the league - a third of the season still to play - and I firmly believe we have the squad here capable of getting on a run and making a challenge.

"We're going to attack every game with a positive frame of mind and give it everything we've got.

"Starting with Wednesday's game against Dagenham & Redbridge, we'll look to do this with every match we have left this season and see where it takes us.

"We've enjoyed our experience here at Wembley and this whole occasion but we will be ready for the Dagenham game because we know how important it is to us.

"I firmly believe this team is good enough to be higher up in the league than we find ourselves at the moment. We have games in hand and we still have an opportunity."
