Goal-scorer Elliot Watt is confident the Bantams will soon return to winning ways, following their 1-1 draw at home to Walsall. 

Despite creating a number of goal-scoring opportunities, City proved unable to find a winner against the Saddlers, who played the entire second half with 10 men. 

Watt was disappointed his side only managed to take a point from the contest, but believes results will come, if performances continue to impress. 

He said: “Unfortunately, we could not get over the line and send the supporters home happy. 

“Once the sending off happened, Walsall dropped very deep and we had the opportunities but we were unable to break them down. 

“One of the most encouraging things was that we did create the chances and, if we keep doing that, eventually they will turn into goals. 

“If we stick to what we are already doing, I have no doubt that the wins will come again. 

“Our aim is to make Valley Parade a fortress, so still being unbeaten here is a positive.”

The midfielder also confessed his delight at scoring on his 50th league start for the club. 

Watt joined the Bantams at the beginning of the 2020/21 campaign and is honoured to have already started so many games for City. 

He added: “Of course, it is always nice to get on the scoresheet. 

“It was very similar to the goal I scored against Forest Green Rovers last season where the ball just fell to me on the edge of the penalty area and luckily I made a clean connection with it. 

“To have already started 50 league games for this great club is a huge honour, and I am learning more here every day. 

“I just need to keep working hard and continue to develop as a player.

“I am surrounded by a great manager and group of players which is vital for me.”

The Bantams are back in action at the Utilita Energy Stadium on Saturday September 18 - against Barrow. CLICK HERE to purchase tickets.
