Jake Young spoke of his delight, after his first-half wondergoal secured all three points for the Bantams in yesterday's victory over Walsall. 

Young netted his third goal in two appearances at the University of Bradford Stadium, as City extended their unbeaten run to three matches. 

The forward, a summer recruit from Forest Green Rovers, is hoping to continue his rich vein of form, and was delighted with the victory.

Speaking after the game, he said: “I hope my goal-scoring form continues.

“To get the two goals midweek against Sheffield Wednesday and then to score again today was great. It is always a special feeling in front of our supporters.

“The fans got us through those tough last 20 minutes. We were putting bodies on the line to ensure we got all three points, and the atmosphere from the fans played a massive part.

“They are a credit to the club. You do not usually get that level of support at this level.

“We know that was not our finest performance of the season, but the important thing was coming away with three points.

“The result shows our character, and that we have learnt from our mistakes like in the Barrow game earlier in the season, when we conceded late.

“If we are not happy with our performance, but still coming away with the three points, then that is a good sign.

Young also discussed the competition for places in the squad, and praised the impact incoming players have had.

He is prepared to keep fighting for his starting spot, but insists competition will only benefit the Bantams.

The 21-year-old added: “This squad is the best I have seen. There is a lot of strength in depth, which is a good problem for the manager to have.

“We know that, with a squad as talented as ours, we should be looking to achieve special things this season.

“I like the healthy competition; it gets the best out of me. I know there are other players in the team who are ready to take my shirt, and I will be fighting to keep it.”
