Harry Lewis described City’s 3-0 away victory over Forest Green as a “perfect day at the office” as the Bantams recorded back-to-back league wins at The Bolt New Lawn last night.

City’s No.1 lauded and dissected the dominant display in Nailsworth and discussed how adding a second clean sheet in the space of a week is “rewarding” for the whole side, to extract confidence and momentum.

“We worked hard for three excellent points - you cannot ask for much more,” he said.

“It is a long way to come, and it could have been a potentially difficult place to come given their situation at the other end of the table.

“That being said, they did not threaten us much at all, and we took our chances.

“We nullified their threats and out-played them across the pitch. It was a perfect day at the office for every single one of us.

“The change in shape has helped us all. The new system is playing to the lads' strengths, and we look like a solid outfit.

“I have not had that many saves to make, which I do not mind!

“It is rewarding for the whole side to have another clean sheet in the space of a few days, and it is something we can build on.”

Last night’s clean sheet moves the Shrewsbury-born stopper into City’s top 20 clean sheet holders of all time - a feeling Lewis labels “crazy”, but he is honoured to have a place in the Bantams’ history books.

He lastly discussed his weekend plans, as City find themselves back in action next Tuesday in the Bristol Street Motors Trophy Round of 32 against Liverpool’s Under-21s - a fixture in which Lewis eyes progression into the next stage.

“It is crazy, to be honest,” he continued.

“It still only feels like I have been in here five minutes!

“I have had to be patient. I think any goalkeeper would like to break these records faster. 

“I am really proud of a very small place in the big history of this club. It is a very special feeling, and the aim is to climb higher up the list.

“Regarding the weekend, I need to check if we are training first before any plans are made!

“It is probably going to be a chilled one, with eyes on Tuesday’s Bristol Street Motors fixture.

“You can not turn your nose up to a trip to Wembley. A win next week and we are three games from the final.

“That would be amazing for the club, the players and the fans, because they deserve it.”
