Brad Halliday is proud of the Bantams for getting over the line in yesterday's lunchtime draw with Leyton Orient and is determined ahead of the play-offs.

City's goalscorer recognised the obstacle which faced them, but was pleased his side was able to hold their own against the champions, and secure a spot in the top seven.

The former Fleetwood defender was proud of how City dealt with pressure - in what was a "big day on and off the field" - and was delighted to have crossed the line.

“It was always going to be tough playing the champions at home, but we got there,” he said.

“I am buzzing going into the play-offs and I fancy us.

“It was a big day for the football club - both on and off the pitch - so it was important to cross the line. 

“We were desperate to get over that final hurdle. We knew of the added pressure on us, so we are all pleased.

“We dealt with the pressure very well. We got over the line - and I am glad we got the job done.”

Halliday was “very happy” to score his first goal in claret and amber, just minutes after the Bantams had fallen behind, and was relieved to have found the net.

The 27-year-old praised “every single one of the fans” who came along to the University of Bradford Stadium yesterday, and although noting the strength of Sunday’s visitors, insists the Bantams are desperate to “get the job done” against the Cumbrians.

“I am very happy,” Halliday beamed.

“They had just scored moments before, so to not stay behind for too long helped us. 

“To be honest, it is a relief that I got the goal.

“It will be a tough game on Sunday, but I fancy us at home against anyone.

“If we get the support we did here, then that could help us get the job done on Sunday.

“I take my hat off to every single one of the fans that came and helped us.

“They really got behind us and helped us get over the line.”
