Defender Finn Cousin-Dawson is desperate for the Bantams to carry momentum forward into tomorrow’s trip to Mansfield Town. 

Derek Adams’ men descend on the One Call Stadium looking for their third-straight Sky Bet League Two victory, after home wins over Stevenage and Oldham Athletic. 

Having started each of City’s last three matches in all competitions, Cousin-Dawson insists he and his team-mates must keep pushing forward in Nottinghamshire. 

The 19-year-old said: “Mansfield have started really well, as we have, but we have just got to go there and carry the momentum we have started to build over the past few matches. 

“We are coming off the back of two really good games at Valley Parade which have filled us with confidence. 

“On a personal note, I have to keep impressing and putting in solid performances, and helping the team continue to get three points.”

Now in his second year as a professional, Cousin-Dawson is enjoying life under new City manager Adams. 

The Bantams academy graduate believes the hard work the players were put through during pre-season is now paying dividends, and hopes it will show come the end of the campaign. 

Cousin-Dawson added: “The gaffer just demands the most from his players, and we have all built up quite a tough mental strength. 

“A lot of that has come from the training we did in pre-season, on the track at Bradford Park Avenue. 

“It builds a lot of toughness and resilience which he builds his teams on, and we do not see it as much of a chore, as it will hopefully make us successful in the long run.”

A limited number of tickets for tomorrow’s clash can still be purchased from the box office at the Utilita Energy Stadium.
