Gareth Evans insists there is confidence within the City camp - ahead of this evening’s trip to Grimsby Town. 

The Bantams travel to Blundell Park on the back of two games unbeaten, having beaten Cambridge United 1-0 on Saturday. 

Evans claims the mood at the training ground is a positive one, and hopes this will fill City with confidence ahead of a Christmas visit to the seaside. 

The former Portsmouth midfielder said: “Winning breeds confidence and that is hopefully what will help us - going into the Grimsby game. 

“All the lads are in a very buoyant mood, which I hope is what will give us the confidence.

“Mark (Trueman) and Conor (Sellars) have come in and brought a lot of organisation to the training ground. 

“We are all in a much-improved mood and are looking for the continuity of that tonight.”

Having made his injury return from the bench against the U’s at the weekend, Evans is now focussed on bringing his all to the side now he is fully fit once more. 

The 32-year-old was disappointed following Stuart McCall’s departure, but is concentrating on how he can have a positive impact for the Bantams over the course of the remainder of the season. 

Evans added: “I was gutted when Stuart left and felt like I did not contribute to his cause as much as I would have liked. 

“It is now about looking forward and concentrating on the future, now I am back fit again. 

“It has been frustrating for me, but I would like to think the next few weeks will be a lot brighter. 

“I feel great physically and very sharp, so I am looking forward to getting going and contributing towards this team. Hopefully, Bradford City will now begin to see the best of me.”
