New signing Jamie Walker insists is comfortable with the weight of expectation, ahead of the prospect of his City debut at home to Salford City tomorrow. 

Walker joined the club on loan this week, after an agreement was struck with parent club Heart of Midlothian for his services until the end of the season.

The 28-year-old understands the pressure of playing in front of a large crowd, having come from a club with big expectations, and is looking to use his experience to hit the ground running in West Yorkshire.

He said: “I have always been at big clubs, with big expectations. The pressure is something I am used to.

“I know this club has lofty ambitions and hopefully I can bring my experience to the club and help the team.

“I was delighted to get the deal done, I want to come here and buy into what the gaffer and the boys are building.

“I am not the most vocal on the pitch in terms of leadership, but I like to let my goals do the talking.”

Walker highlighted the influence of Derek Adams in completing the move, praising his fellow Scot’s reputation and promotion record.

City’s new No.10 has not played under Adams in the past, but scored his first professional goal against a Ross County side lead by the Bantams chief.

The winger added: “Derek Adams wanted to bring me here and, when you hear that, it really is a no brainer.

“The manager knowing me as a player and as a person makes the move much easier, it was one of the defining factors.

“He has earned promotion a few times now - first with Ross County back home, before promoting Plymouth and Morecambe. He knows what he is doing.

“Hopefully, together, we can use the second half of the season to push on and move up the league.”
