New loan signing Tom Elliott is looking forward to the prospect of making his City debut in tomorrow afternoon’s home clash with Crawley Town.

The 31-year-old joined the Bantams on loan from Salford City yesterday, and is hopeful he can help the team climb the table.

Elliott is excited to get out on the pitch in City colours and is confident things will click into place for the team soon enough.

He said: “I cannot wait to get started and properly playing. The boys have a good work ethic and there is a good setup here as well. When it all clicks together, I am sure we will be flying.

“I have dealt with pressure my entire career. If you cannot deal with pressure then you should not be a footballer because you are going to have to deal with it a lot.

“Crawley are a good side. I remember playing against them at the start of the season and they have some experienced players.

“If we just get into that rhythm and get the crowd on our side, it will make a massive difference and there will hopefully be no stopping us.”

The forward is also relishing playing in front of supporters at the Utilita Energy Stadium.

Elliott was in the Salford side which visited Valley Parade just under a fortnight ago and heaped praise on the atmosphere created by the home fans.

He added: “The atmosphere was brilliant. Bradford were on top and chasing the game, so the fans were just roaring them on.

“I have not heard an atmosphere like it in League Two for a very long time.

“Atmosphere-wise, it was probably one of the best I have ever played in for a very long time at this level.

“Hearing this fan base, they should be miles up the league and, hopefully, I can help the team get up there.

“(Andy) Cooky has done well and I am sure we will push each other and make one another better.

“I have been in teams where I have been on the teamsheet every week but you always want someone pushing you, because it makes you a better player.”
