Gareth Evans has warned the Bantams cannot afford to underestimate Grimsby Town - ahead of tomorrow’s Sky Bet League Two encounter. 

City will aim to make it three wins in four matches when taking on the Mariners at the Utilita Energy Stadium. 

Evans stressed the importance of Mark Trueman and Conor Sellars’ side sticking to their gameplan, but insists they are full of confidence heading into the clash. 

He said: “We cannot afford to be complacent. 

“The most important thing is we to stick to our gameplan and do whatever it takes to pick up three points. 

“Playing against teams at the bottom end of the table is very difficult, especially at this time of the season.

“Grimsby are fighting for their lives to stay in the division, right now, which makes them very dangerous opponents. 

“We are all confident in the dressing room and have recently been on a good run of form so, hopefully, we can keep it up.”

The 32-year-old also spoke of his pride at representing the Bantams over a second spell in claret and amber. 

Evans re-joined City from Portsmouth in September, and believes the club is heading in the right direction. 

He added: “I have really enjoyed my second spell here, so far. 

“There are plenty of things which have improved at the club since I was last here. 

“I returned with the intention of achieving success and being a part of something special so, hopefully, this can happen. 

“The club is certainly heading in the right direction at this moment in time, and it is up to us players to get Bradford City back to where it needs to be.”
