Derek Adams has called for the Bantams to take encouragement and confidence from their performance against a high-flying Stevenage side in this season’s reverse fixture, ahead of tomorrow’s clash.
City visit the Lamex Stadium looking to return to winning ways, after defeat at Harrogate Town on Saturday.
And the Bantams boss wants his players to be reminded of a four-goal disposal of Boro at the Utilita Energy Stadium in August, to fuel their confidence ahead of the 7.45pm clash.
He said: “Against Stevenage earlier in the season, we played ever so well. We go there trying to create as many opportunities as we can.
“We passed the ball really well and got into space, and we have taken in players in January to add to that.
“We have to be in a situation where we are taking the game to them. It is up to us to go there and put the onus on the opposition.”
Adams is confident he and his side are pulling in the same direction, and hopes the strength in their beliefs can help them climb the table.
He feels hard work and continued perseverance will ensure they are able to eventually embark on a winning run.
The City chief added: “When you are strong in your beliefs as a group, you understand the process. We just have to start winning games.
“At the end of the day, it is wins that matter and not performances. That is what this group is trying to do.
“The biggest thing we are not doing, at the moment, is finishing the big chances when they come along.
“When you are in this process and understand how you are playing the game, you have to know that eventually you will start winning games.”
Tickets for the clash are available until 9.00AM TOMORROW. CLICK HERE to purchase.
