Richard O’Donnell is aiming to continue building momentum on the road - ahead of Saturday’s trip to Cambridge United.

The Bantams are aiming to record back-to-back victories after a 3-1 triumph over Stevenage on Tuesday.

O’Donnell is looking forward to the side’s first away trip since the arrival of Stuart McCall as manager, and hopes this can spell a change in recent away form.

The goalkeeper said: “We have not been good enough away from home, this season. Just because a new manager has come in, that is not disregarded.

“All we can do is try to execute Stuart McCall’s gameplan and try our hardest to get three points.

“A win on Saturday will be a significant one. We will be three games unbeaten with seven points in nine - having recorded our first away win in a while.

“It would be a huge morale boost and would be brilliant for everyone. We all want three points and want to go out and do that.

“It should prove a game of two teams full of confidence - looking to extent their respective runs.

“We are all excited, with it being the gaffer’s first away game since coming back to the club.”

With Stuart McCall preparing to take charge of his third game in the dugout since returning, O’Donnell insists he and his team-mates have taken to the former Scotland international well.

The former Northampton Town stopper is enjoying the style of football McCall is trying to implement and is determined to see this reflected in the side’s results.

He added: “It has been good so far and we have enjoyed working with Stuart. It is important for us to carry on building momentum.

“We showed on Tuesday that we are capable of scoring goals - we got three for only the third time this season, which was encouraging.

“We know we need to attack, get crosses into the box and play entertaining football.

“The positive signs were there in the second half on Tuesday and we know we are getting closer to where he wants us to be.

“He is a very positive manager and man and we want to try and be positive on the pitch - which will hopefully see us win more games.”
