Mark Hughes is hoping his first win at the Utilita Energy Stadium will come sooner rather than later, ahead of tomorrow's visit of Newport County.

Hughes has two victories under his belt as City manager, both of which came on the road, and the Welshman would like to believe his first home victory is just around the corner.

The Bantams welcome Newport County this weekend, and Hughes is aiming to further dent the South Wales club’s promotion charge.

He said: “We are all waiting for that win. We have been close in all of the games in my view.

“The teams we have played, and will play between now and the end of the season, are all playing for something.

“We have not had any easy games and I do not think there will be any easy games. There will be teams going for the play-offs and even going for the automatic promotion spots.

“We have not got our home form sorted yet, but have a chance to fix that on Saturday.”

On the one-month anniversary of his appointment on Thursday, Hughes suggested the squad should begin to mould into how he would like it shaped.

He believes his instructions should now be in place effectively and is looking forward to further introducing more ideas over the remaining weeks of the season.

He added: “I would like to think they understand where I am coming from now, in terms of standards and the way we train and behave, the levels we have to hit.

“You cannot just switch that on and off, it has to be a constant. It has to run through the club, from Monday until the weekend.

“There is a lot to play for, there are a lot of the guys who are playing for future contracts.

“It is in everybody’s best interest that we play well until the end of the season.”
