Goal-scorer Caolan Lavery was thrilled with City’s “excellent” display, following their 3-1 triumph at Swindon Town. 

The 29-year-old forward netted the opening goal of the contest which was his first for the club since signing from Walsall in the summer, the day after his birthday.

Lavery was pleased with the Bantams’ showing and is now hoping he and his team-mates can put together a positive run of results.

He said: “It was excellent. Everyone out there put in a shift.

“We wanted to come here, get a hold of the game and score goals, which we did.

“We have the squad to do really well in this league. We have been up and down recently which, obviously, we are not happy about.

“I do not think our confidence as a team has ever dropped. We believe in ourselves as a group, but we know we need to become a little bit more consistent.

“Hopefully, we can now kick on after this win.”

Lavery also confessed his delight at scoring his first goal for the Bantams.

The Canadian found the back of the net on his first league start for the club and admitted he has had to be patient for his opportunity.

He added: “For me to get my first goal was an awesome feeling. Alex Gilliead won a flick-on and, luckily, I managed to get across my man and put the ball into the bottom corner.

“We have a really good squad here. With the competitiveness and intensity that we train at every day, you can tell we have great group of lads who just want to do well.

“You can see in the performances that we all work hard for each other, and that is a credit to everyone, even those who are not in the team.

“I am very happy to finally get into the starting XI. Sometimes, in football, you have to be patient, but if you work hard every day and show the manager you are ready to come in, then you always have a chance.”

Lavery and his team-mates are back in action at home to Forest Green Rovers next Saturday (October 30, 3.00pm). CLICK HERE to read full details.
