Elliot Watt insists confidence is high within the City camp - ahead of Saturday's trip to Walsall. 

The Bantams descend on the Banks's Stadium looking for their fourth-straight victory, after overcoming Leyton Orient in midweek. 

Watt admits the Bantams are instilling more and more of a fearless approach with every match, under recently-appointed permanent managers Mark Trueman and Conor Sellars. 

The midfielder said: "We do feel as though we can beat anyone in this league, and have to be able to adopt that fearless mentality.

"This season has shown that any side can beat another. We saw that last night with Southend United beating Forest Green Rovers.

"We have to go into the game aware of what our opponents can do, but also even more clear on how we can hurt teams, which is what these two gaffers have been brilliant with.

"We do a lot of work on the opposition, but have to concentrate on our play and what we can do to get the game won - which is what we have done again ahead of Saturday."

In a season where he has started all but one of City's Sky Bet League Two encounters, the 20-year-old is relishing the opportunity to continue growing as a footballer.

Watt feels he has matured given different circumstances the Bantams have been faced with since September, and is looking forward to tackling similar experiences in the future. 

The former Wolverhampton Wanderers man added: "It has been great for me personally, in terms of development.

"There have been moments this season where I have had setbacks and knocks of confidence, with the Bolton Wanderers away game sticking out in my mind, but that is what you need to recover and learn from.

"Starting pretty much every league game has been very beneficial, and gives me plenty of opportunities to learn.

"I am determined to keep growing here as a player and hopefully helping this club be successful."
