Luke Hendrie insists he and his team-mates are focused on their own game, rather than the opposition, ahead of tomorrow's visit of promotion-chasing Swindon Town. 

Prior to Hendrie’s arrival, the Bantams got the better of Saturday’s visitors in a 3-1 win at The County Ground.

Despite a working knowledge of how the Robins play, the City full-back is adamant the Bantams are focusing on improving their own game, under new boss Mark Hughes.

He said: “For me, it is about concentrating on what we can do.

“We should be focusing on our own game, on ourselves. Everything we have done this week has been about working on us.

“Training has been all about building up to Saturday and how the gaffer wants us to play.

“All it takes is a scrappy win, or maybe a clean sheet to take into the next game, and we have some momentum.”

Hendrie, who joined the club just last month, was full of praise for new manager Hughes and the impact he has had on the squad. 

The 27-year-old graduated from Manchester United’s academy, where his now-manager made his name, and insists everyone is eager to play for him.

Hendrie added: “All of us want to impress him, and sometimes you try too hard and he just tells you to calm down, add that little bit of composure. 

“I think that is the best compliment I can give him. He is very composed.

“You can see the level he has managed at, the level he has played at. He commands that respect immediately.

“The composure he brings to training is a good quality and hopefully it rubs off on us.”
