Stuart McCall has called for his players to remain positive ahead of their second home match in four days - against Stevenage.

City entertain bottom-of-the-table Boro after bagging a point in McCall’s first game back at the helm - at home to Grimsby Town - on Saturday.

The former Scottish international is keen to see his side keep building and battling towards getting results.

He said: “We have just got to be positive, heading into Tuesday’s game.

“Despite not being brilliant - in terms of quality - on Saturday, we picked up a decent draw to take us a point closer to where we need to be.

“Training arrangements have been tough over the past few days, because of the weather.

“We had planned to have the players in on Sunday, but were not able to.

“At this moment in time, we have just got to focus on getting the basics right and being the best we can be to pick up results.”

Having only been back at the club for a week, McCall has had limited time to prepare for each match and focus on City’s opponents.

He has stressed his main focus is on the performance of his own players and what they can produce to ensure the home faithful leave the Utilita Energy Stadium happy.

The Bantams boss added: “Stevenage have had a tough time, of late, but did well at Exeter City on Saturday to peg them back to 1-1 - quite late on.

“They brought three or four new lads in on loan from Premier League clubs in January and we have looked at them in detail.

“As always, though, I am focussed on us and am more concerned about what we can do on the pitch to give ourselves the best chance of winning the game.

“Our supporters have not had a lot to cheer about over the past few years and that is something we must change.

“They were brilliant on Saturday and our aim over the coming weeks and months has to be focussed on our results and performances to send them home happy.”
