Levi Sutton insists the Bantams must treat this evening's clash the same as any other game, when travelling to Exeter City in the Emirates FA Cup first round ‘replay replay’.
This will be City’s third trip to St James Park in the space of only 115 days, after the replay was ordered to be played again thanks to Exeter making six substitutes.
Sutton believes it is important Derek Adams’ side approach the contest as they usually would for any other fixture, and also stressed his determination to advance to the second round.
He said: “We are still in the competition and can still go through to the next round, which is what we have to do.
“Us players can either feel sorry for ourselves or go down there and win the game.
“We just have to brush ourselves off, go down there and win the match.
“We have to prepare for this the same way we would for any game, and believe we can win.
“We are all frustrated right now, but that could easily turn around with one result.
“It has just been disappointing that we have been creating chances but not taking them.”
The midfielder admitted how much he is enjoying his football at present, on a personal level.
Sutton has started seven of the City’s last nine league games, and has found the back of the net twice in this run.
He added: “I am playing with a fair bit of confidence.
“This season, I am really understanding what I am good at and cutting out a lot of mistakes from my game.
“When things are going well, you do stuff naturally and do not think about things much, going into games.
“I want to be the standout player in a team that is doing well and feel as though that is around the corner.
“I know there are winners in this team, because I see it all the time in training.”
