Sam Stubbs was pleased the Bantams were able to make it three wins on the bounce in Sky Bet League Two, following yesterday's 1-0 win over Sutton United. 

City again showed defensive solidarity to keep their fifth-straight clean sheet in all competitions, and four wins in their last five. 

Stubbs played the majority of the game in midfield to partner Alex Gilliead, and admitted he gained confidence from speaking to Graham Alexander and other players before playing in an unfamiliar role.

“Getting three wins in a week in this league is massive,” he said.

“It is a positive result, a third win on the bounce.

“In terms of the game, (Sutton) are fighting in every game, but we stood up to them today and came away with a good win.

“It was different (playing in midfield). I have been in that position a few times. I spoke to the other players who play there and that gave me confidence.

“The gaffer spoke to me before and he said to just go and play your way, just higher up - no need to over complicate things, keep it simple.

“It is always better when you come away with a win and a clean sheet, but I was happy to be back in the back three to finish the game off!”

The 25-year old is please to see the side continuing to keep clean sheets and insists City are now reaping the benefits of the hard work in training.

He is looking forward to the Bantams' next outing on Wednesday night as they host Wycombe Wanderers in the Bristol Street Moors Trophy Semi-Final. The defender hopes the City faithful are looking forward to the occasion as much as the players are, with the chance to book a place in the final.

“We have been able to keep a good amount of clean sheets in a row now,” Stubbs continued.

"If you can keep clean sheets, you are always in the game. 

“Before Wrexham, we kept clean sheets and were defensively solid but were just missing the goals, but over the last few games that is something we have added.

“That is why you play football - the reward of Wembley.

“The fans deserve it. Hopefully they are looking forward to it. It is for them - as it is for us to play at Wembley.

"This club has a affiliation with Wembley, so we would like to go back there.

“We could not have had a better run up to Wednesday. We will rest and recover, and we will go again.”
