Scott Banks felt “sensational” after netting City’s second goal in the Bantams' dramatic 2-0 victory over Colchester United at the University of Bradford Stadium.

The Scot reflected on a heartbreaking trip to the JobServe Community Stadium earlier in the season, and how that enhanced the feeling of stealing all the points, in front of a record 20,383 supporters at Valley Parade. 

The 21-year-old also lauded the atmosphere in the dressing room, and despite “leaving it late”, was proud of the endeavour of the Bantams, as three points moved City to within another three points of the automatic-promotion spots in Sky Bet League Two.

He said: “I am ecstatic. It was amazing to be a part of it. 

“The atmosphere was incredible. To go finish the game like that feels amazing - I am just delighted.

“The Colchester game away from home was one of my first games for the club, so it was nice to do the same back to them.

“To score as well - I just feel sensational!

“We were under a bit of pressure. Opposition teams are always going to have a little spell of momentum, but we dug in well.

“We left it late, but there is no better feeling than that.”

The Crystal Palace loanee loved every minute of netting his first goal since returning from his spell on the sidelines, taking great individual pride. 

Banks was delighted to share the “special feeling” with over 20,000 home supporters, who broke the club's fourth-tier attendance record for the third time in less than 12 months, but called for City to replicate yesterday’s desire in upcoming trips to Walsall and Newport County.

He joked: “My knees are in bits! I did a knee slide when I scored. 

“You just do not think, when you score, and to be honest, it is all a bit of a blur.

“I was so happy to score, and for me personally, it was great after being out with my injury.

“That is what I have got to do. When I get a chance, I have to take it. 

“The fans were brilliant. As a group, we cannot thank them enough.

“They are so special. If there were not that many, then the moment would not have been as magical. 

“That was the best ending to a game that we have all ever been a part of, for sure. 

“We have got to keep consistent.

“We have to keep finding ways to win, and if we can continue like this, then the three points will keep coming.”
