City midfielder Alex Gilliead is ready to dig deep for results, ahead of tonight's visit of Harrogate Town.

The Bantams welcome Town for their second clash this month this evening, and Gilliead believes it is the perfect opportunity to bounce back from the weekend’s disappointment.

With three-consecutive home games afoot, City’s No.11 insisted it is a case of now or never, if they are to turn their season around.

He said: “We have three home games in a row now. It is a good chance to get the fans on board and get a bit of positivity in the place.

“It is not good enough at the minute. For this club, we need to be winning games and creating chances by playing exciting football.

“We have got to stop talking now and just go out there and give it our all.

“We need to go out against Harrogate, put in a good performance and get the win. That is what our supporters want.”

Gilliead was one of a number of players who joined the club last summer under former manager Derek Adams.

The past week has been Gilliead’s first experience of working to caretaker manager Mark Trueman’s demands, and spoke of his satisfaction with the refreshing impact he has had.

He added: “The lads who were here last year spoke highly of him after the good run they went on. We know what he is about and it is about getting it across to the new lads too.

“The last couple of days, since he has been in charge, he has put his style across.

“We have to implement what he is trying to do on the training pitch. He is a good coach who enjoys the tactical side of the game.

“It is about going back to basics now. We have a game tonight and we have to go out and win it.”
