Anthony O’Connor has called for the Bantams to ensure they do not let complacency affect them - when travelling to Scunthorpe United this afternoon. 

City make the short trip to the Sands Venue Stadium on the back of a break in fixtures, which came after a five-game unbeaten run. 

The Irish defender is however conscious of the task at hand and is determined to see the Bantams continue to pick up points. 

O’Connor said: “A few good results do not change anything, for us. We can win games as easily as we can lose games and we know our form can quickly change. 

“We just have to make sure our concentration is high at all times, and we stay focused on trying to pick up these results. 

“It is just another game, for us, but one against a team around where we are in the table, so we are determined to make sure we win. 

“We are travelling a ground we have not been beaten at for a good few years, and want to make sure that continues.” 

After City’s January 2 visit of Morecambe was postponed following positive COVID-19 cases within the Shrimps’ camp, O’Connor is now looking forward to being back out on the field and fighting for points. 

He feels he and his team-mates are well refreshed following the break and are heading into the Scunthorpe clash with a strong week of training under their belts. 

The 28-year-old added: “It has been nice to have a bit of a rest before a match against a side we will be looking to pick up another three points against. 

“There have been a lot of Saturday and Tuesday games and it was good to recover well ahead of the next one. 

“We had a few days off and opportunity to recover, and then Mark (Trueman) and Conor (Sellars) had a good chance to get some more of their ideas across in training. 

“We are looking forward to getting back into the games on Saturday, and hope to keep the positive run of results going.”
