Graham Alexander wants his side to remain consistent, ahead of Saturday's visit of Sutton United. 

Following City’s win at home against MK Dons in midweek, Alexander wants his side focused ahead of the remainder of the season. 

The Bantams boss was pleased with Tuesday's outing and the overall performance from his side, describing the game as a disciplined and efficient one for City.

“We want to challenge every player to be consistent,” he said.

“You have to produce in every game. We know that form can fluctuate, but every game we need that consistency of keeping our performance and physical levels high.

“It was a very good and disciplined performance on Tuesday. We did well with and without the ball and we struck when we had our moments. That pleased me the most.

“It was also a very efficient effort from the players. They were great all the way through, and I was very happy with our game management.

“We did not want to win 4-2, we wanted to win 4-0 - from both my point of view and the players point of view.

“They took that responsibility on board and kept the clean sheet, and that gives me great confidence.

“If you are doing the right things on a consistent basis, then you have more chance of doing well, and most importantly, doing that in a game.”

City’s chief spoke about the belief in the squad, saying spirits are high and he wants this to fuel a sustained spell of good form, after back-to-back wins over teams in the play-off spots. 

The 52-year old is looking forward to Saturday when the Bantams return to action against Sutton United, and hopes his players can send the City faithful home with smiles on their faces come the full-time whistle.

“You can feel the positivity in the place, and you can hear it,” Alexander added.

“I can hear the laughing, the joking, the upbeat nature within the side. The lads are a good and positive group.

“You can see a step up after the recent positive fixtures, and if getting positive results does not put a smile on your face, then you are in wrong sport.

“Many teams come to Valley Parade and some teams can see it as a big scalp - it is a unique game for most clubs.

“Our motivation is to continue winning games to make people happy. We want to keep a smile on everyone’s face.

“Everyone talks about our home crowd, because it is loud and it is passionate. That is a weapon for us and that is what we want it to become.

“We want their support, but what is most important is what they leave with - and hopefully that will be a smile on their face.”
