Conor Sellars insists the Bantams are confident of being able to extend their unbeaten run - ahead of this evening’s meeting with Southend United. 

City travel to Essex on the back of six games unbeaten, following a 0-0 draw at Sky Bet League Two leaders Cambridge United on Saturday. 

While calling for the players to not get complacent, the joint-interim boss spoke of the positivity currently within the camp. 

He said: “There is a lot of confidence at the moment. 

“On Saturday, we felt in control for large parts of the game, and are improving with every match. 

“After a few positive results, it is easy to get carried away and complacent, so we just need to make sure we keep our feet on the ground and keep working hard.”

Despite entering the encounter as favourites, Sellars is still looking for his side to approach the Roots Hall affair with an underdog’s mentality. 

He is refusing to underestimate the challenge the Shrimpers will present, and wants City’s attitude to remain the same. 

Sellars added: “It is going to be a tough game. Southend are very unpredictable and have a lot of threats. 

“We have done a lot of work and research on them since Saturday, and are just looking forward to getting back out there. 

“You can go into a game as favourites but still carry that underdog mentality. It is all about how you approach it in your minds and how you conduct yourselves. 

“It is going to be a different challenge for us, but we will approach it looking to impose our gameplan and come away with the three points, as we always do.”
