16 February 2021

Sam Hornby admits the Bantams are “champing at the bit” to return to action - ahead of this evening’s visit of Morecambe. 

City contest their first game in over a week tonight, having seen games against Scunthorpe United and Morecambe abandoned and postponed respectively. 

And, while admitting the threats of the Bantams’ high-flying visitors, Hornby cannot wait to get back out on the field. 

He said: “I am sure we will all be raring to go, given what has happened with our games recently. All the lads are champing at the bit to get back out there. 

“Morecambe a good side, and we are going to have to be at our best to get a result against them. 

“They are doing well at the moment, but we are confident as well, so it should be a good game. It is certainly one we are looking forward to.”

Given the stop-start nature of the Bantams’ recent schedule, the 26-year-old also admitted his frustration at not having been able to enjoy a consistent run of fixtures. 

And, with captain Richard O’Donnell nearing fitness again, the City stopper is determined to ensure he keeps his place between the sticks, and is looking forward to upcoming fixtures. 

Hornby added: “It has been frustrating, given the fact I was looking at a potentially decent run of games in the team. 

“We have had a difficult time with fixtures being called off, but it is still up to me to keep my place in the team, with Rich not far away from returning. 

“I am looking forward to carrying on working and competing, with even more fixtures now coming up again.”
