City midfielder Levi Sutton is looking forward to the Bantams’ trip to South Wales tomorrow afternoon, where they will take on Newport County.

The Bantams will be aiming to secure back-to-back victories in Sky Bet League Two, while looking for their first victory at Rodney Parade since 1985.

Sutton confessed his excitement ahead of the encounter, and feels less pressure with long trips in comparison to last season's schedule. 

He said: “I am excited. It is another chance to get three points and, hopefully, we can go into this one with the same amount of confidence that we did the last game.

“Last season was difficult with constant back-to-back Saturday and Tuesday games, so we are glad that is put behind us now.

“Bodies were never recovering, so it is good that we have a lot more rest time this season and there should be a lot less injuries this year.”

Sutton also confessed his delight at returning to the Bantams’ starting XI in last weekend’s victory at home to Rochdale.

This was the 24-year-old’s first start in the league since City’s opening game of the season away to Exeter City, and he hopes he and his team-mates can follow it up with another three points.

Sutton added: “I really enjoyed the game last weekend, especially because it was my first one back in front of all our supporters.

“It was a good game. Going into it, I was just concentrating on getting the three points.

“I go to training and work hard every week and, obviously, have been given my chance now, so I am glad I have taken it and proved the manager right for putting me in the team.

“I did not put any more pressure on myself. I just did what I know I can do and what I can bring to this team and that is exactly what I did.

“Everyone knew the importance of the game going into it. It was a much-needed win which we got in the end.

“It is now up to us to make sure we keep building the momentum and back it up with another positive result on Saturday.”
