Derek Adams is determined to begin closing the gap which separates his side and Swindon Town - ahead of Saturday's trip to The County Ground. 

The Bantams boss did not shirk his intentions when discussing the encounter this weekend, setting his sights on once again coming away with all three points. 

Adams insisted he is aware of the division's tight nature, but is confident his side can climb the table in a matter of games - starting with their visit to the Robins.

He said: “We are five points off second place. It is a tight league and we have only needed two more games swing our way and we would be in a much better position.

“Swindon have started the season very well, and are only five points ahead of us. We will go there to try and win the game.

“Away from home, we need to start picking up more points. Saturday’s game is one we are looking forward to.”

The City chief suggested a change of style may be what is required to turn his side's fortunes around away from home.

Adams' men have only won one away game so far this season, and the Scot discussed a change of approach could be in order, to pick up three points on the road.

He added: “It is not easy going away from home. Sometimes you have got to play in a different way.

“It is difficult at home because you have to be on top of the game, but away from home you can play a slightly different way and pick off the opposition.

“We will continue to look at the opposition and look for their weaknesses, and will make slight adjustments to give us the advantage, but we have got to be prepared to win uglier at times.”
