Ciarán Kelly will be taking the positives from Tuesday night's performance at Stockport County into tomorrow's Sky Bet League Two trip to Morecambe. 

The Bantams were held to a 1-1 draw at Edgeley Park, despite having chances to win the game late on.

Kelly wants to remain positive following their performance in Lancashire, and bring all three points back to the University of Bradford Stadium.

“Our shape was good against Stockport on Tuesday,” he said.

“We kept the ball well at the back as well as going forward.

“I think if we play like that, we stand in good stead to get all three points on Saturday.

“We have to go into the game with our full focus on getting the three points, and that is what we will do.”

City have switched to a three-man defence so far this season, something Kelly believes, despite taking time to adjust to, is making the Bantams better game by game.

“I have played in a back three before, back home in Ireland,” he added.

“It was slightly different there, as I played in the middle, rather the on the left.

“After playing there all pre-season and so far this season, I am getting used to it.

“I think working with the other centre-backs has definitely helped me.

“They have all played a lot in this country and I have been learning a lot from them, and I think I have been teaching them a few things too.”

REMINDER: Tickets for tomorrow's clash are SOLD OUT, with close to 1,700 Bantams set to descend on The Mazuma Mobile Stadium.
