HALLIDAY FRUSTRATED WITH SALFORD DRAW

Brad Halliday was left frustrated following City’s 1-1 draw with Salford City at the University of Bradford Stadium last night. 

Feeling the Bantams could have got more than just the point, Halliday admitted he and his teammates do not want to be dropping points, particularly on home soil.

The City goalscorer wants to add to more to the attacking side of his game. Playing further forward under Graham Alexander has already yielded his first two goals in claret and amber. Halliday wants to continue getting into those positions, creating more chances for his teammates.

“It was a frustrating night,” he said.

“It is disappointing, we do not want to be drawing games, especially at home.

“It feel like two points dropped, rather than a point gained.

“The new manager has come in and he has been brilliant with me and the rest of the team. It is something I have been trying to add to my game.

“I am usually playing as a more traditional right-back, and I now find myself further forward. It can be frustrating when that final pass is just off.

“Hopefully, I can change and improve on that and create more goalscoring chances going forward.”

City’s No.2 spoke of how he feels the Bantams need to be more clinical in the final third, feeling they are getting into the right positions but not putting the ball in the back of the net enough, which can turn recent draws into three points.

He is now looking ahead to City’s next game, where they travel to the County Ground to face Swindon Town on Saturday, where he hopes the Bantams' fortunes can be turned. 

“We need to be better at converting our chances,” Halliday added.

“We find ourselves in good positions, and at times that final pass or that final shot just is not there.

“It is something that as a team, and myself, we are looking to improve on - to convert more chances, score more goals, and win more games.

“We take each game at a time, and now we will focus on Saturday, getting ready for Swindon away.

“Hopefully we can go there and start converting our chances, and pick up three points on the road.”
