Niall Canavan has described this evening’s meeting with Crawley Town as “another hurdle” he and his City team-mates must clear. 

The Bantams entertain the Red Devils in search of their second-straight victory at the Utilita Energy Stadium, while looking to stretch their unbeaten run to five matches. 

While admitting his satisfaction following Saturday’s victory over Grimsby Town, Canavan insists eyes are all on picking up another three points against John Yems’ side. 

The defender said: “It was a bit of a bizarre game on Saturday, but we found a way to win. 

“The most important thing, at this stage of the season, is to manage to get three points, regardless of how it looks and feels. 

“We switched up a little bit to match their shape, and perhaps did not have as much control as we would have liked, but still come away with the win. 

“We are taking things game by game, and just trying to tick off every hurdle. We are always in with a chance, but it is up to us to keep trying to win each match.”

Despite sitting 15th in Sky Bet League Two, Canavan is aware of the threat Crawley Town will offer. 

He feels the Sussex-based outfit will play without pressure given no threat of relegation, and this is something the Bantams must be aware of. 

The 30-year-old added: “Crawley have had a little bit of a strange season, where they have been up and down at times, but it will be another difficult game. 

“They will not be playing with any pressure, because they are not really in any danger of being relegated. 

“We just have to remain solid as a group, and go in confident of being able to get the three points.”

Keep in the loop with Bradford City
