ALEXANDER EXCITED FOR WYCOMBE CHALLENGE

21 February 2024

Graham Alexander is looking forward to his side's Bristol Street Motors Trophy Semi-Final against Wycombe Wanderers at the University of Bradford Stadium.

Tonight represents the first time the Bantams have contested a last-four fixture in this competition but, to give his side the best chance of success, the City chief is treating this fixture like any other.

“I am always excited before a game,” he said. 

“It is what we work so hard and prepare for, to win a game of football.

“Over the years I have learnt that if you do not prepare for each game equally, you will not be as ready for what is to come.

“We are delighted to have the opportunity, and it is a great opportunity.

“You are always trying to be aware of things that players may be feeling or talking about.

“The staff are very good at picking up on things like that and we have not noticed anything different to that of previous games.

“We have really good experience in our squad which will give the players who have not played in a game like this a big boost.

“I have confidence that we have all the right characters in that dressing room to make the right things happen on the pitch.”

With three-consecutive victories and five-straight clean sheets, Alexander insists his team's recent form shows the processes they have put in place are working, and that they are "doing the right things".

“We are in a good place,” he added.

“Getting out of that winless run and now having won a few games on the bounce is massive.

“It ratified all the work we had been doing, that even though we were not getting the results we were still doing the right things.

“For me that is good for the players, to see what we have been doing has slowly built up and given us a good base to work from.

“I think we have to approach the Wycombe game in the same way.”
