Ben Richards-Everton insists victories are on the horizon for City, ahead of Saturday’s visit of Oldham Athletic (3.00pm).

The Bantams have drawn their opening two league games, with the Latics next in line to visit the Utilita Energy Stadium.

And the defender is confident Gary Bowyer’s men can build on a "solid" start to the campaign by collecting their first three points this weekend.

Richards-Everton said: “We are happy with the start we have made to the season.

"It is obviously disappointing to have drawn both league games without winning but I have a good feeling about this team, and this season.

"The lads are very positive, as is Gary (Bowyer), our fantastic supporters and everyone involved with the club.

"The wins will come. Once we get into our rhythm we will be a force to be reckoned with.

"We are fully concentrated on the Oldham match and getting a positive result on Saturday."

Having won promotion from the fourth tier with Accrington Stanley, in 2018, the centre-back is well aware of what is required at this level.

The 27-year-old has seen positive signs from his team-mates in West Yorkshire and is adamant they are capable of replicating such success.

He added: "At Accrington, we had a great set of lads. A lot of people saw us as over-achievers but it was just a case of us working hard in every single game.

"We have a really good squad, this season, and I am fully focussed on being successful.

"I see similar traits between the boys here and the team we had at Accrington, the season we got promoted.

"We have a lot of leaders and a good mix of youth and experience, which helps massively.

"This season is shaping up nicely and we are all extremely determined to make it a successful one."
