Lee Angol is looking forward to approaching the “business end” of the 2021/22 season, ahead of City’s New Year’s Day trip to Barrow.
The Bantams’ trip to Holker Street will be their first outing in three weeks, after COVID-19 disrupted their schedule.
Angol feels the break in play will mean something of a fresh start for he and his team-mates, when they do return to action.
He said: “It feels like we have reached the halfway point of the season now, and this is the business end.
“It almost feels like a fresh start, where we can leave the results of the last few weeks behind us.
“We can approach the New Year like a clean slate and attack it how we want to attack it by starting to show what we can really do.
“That is by doing everything that we have been lacking in the last few weeks, like scoring goals and getting wins.
“Hopefully, now, that just comes to us, and we do not stop winning.”
City have not played since December 11 where the 10 men came from behind twice to earn a 2-2 draw at home to Sutton United.
Angol feels the Bantams mentally showed another level that game, and hopes they can show that against Barrow.
He added: “The timing of the break was annoying, because I felt as a team we reached another level in terms of character.
“We did feel as a group we showed a lot of togetherness and great character, which might have been a turning point for us.
“We wanted to show that and prove that against Carlisle thinking that Sutton would be a turning point, but it got postponed so it felt like a missed opportunity to turn our season around.
“I do think we have got onto another level mentally, and hopefully we can show that at the weekend and get the win.”
