SELLARS DELIGHTED WITH ‘CLINICAL’ BANTAMS

Conor Sellars was delighted with a “clinical” showing from his side - following this afternoon’s 4-1 victory over Forest Green Rovers. 

The Bantams produced a ruthless attacking performance against the Green Army to record their second-straight victory and remain unbeaten at home - under Sellars and Mark Trueman. 

City’s joint manager was pleased by the way in which his side were able to convert the chances they created, while remaining resolute in defence. 

Sellars said: “We were delighted with the performance. It was good to get into the situations we did, but also finish the chances we created, which I thought we did very well. 

“You can see the confidence of the players who are getting into them positions. We know how crucial it is to finish our chances because we know we can be hurt by a side like Forest Green.

“We did a lot of preparation on them and their shape, and know they are up in the play-offs for a reason, but we felt we controlled the game - all in all. 

“The key for us is to ensure we are still strong and resolute at the back, but also look clinical going forward. 

“It was good to have the discipline there, but we were also a real threat going forward, which was pleasing.”

Sellars also felt the Bantams drew confidence from Saturday’s victory at Colchester United - which saw them return to winning ways - and believes they will take even more belief from this afternoon’s triumph over the coming weeks. 

He added: “The character of the group is so important, and is something we mention quite a lot. The players who are here need to want to do everything in their power to win matches.

“It is nicer to win 4-1 than it is winning 2-1, because you are more comfortable in the closing stages and ultimately take more confidence into the next games. 

“We took a lot of positivity from last week’s game at Colchester, and are looking forward to the next game with this win in mind. 

“It helped us out with a big victory today and we are just looking to keep building on the results we pick up.”
