POINTON: ‘WE NEED TO BE MORE CLINICAL’

13 January 2024

Bobby Pointon admitted the Bantams have to be more clinical in front of goal, following yesterday's 1-1 draw against Colchester United at the JobServe Community Stadium.

Graham Alexander's side were reliant on a one-goal advantage at half-time, meaning Tom Hopper's second-half strike saw the spoils shared in Essex. 

City’s No.23 wants to take the positives the game brought for the Bantams, knowing the downsides of the performance can be ironed out, though insisted the Bantams should have been out of sight. 

“We were not clinical enough,” Pointon said.

“It is a disappointing point. We should have won the game. It was there for us, and we should have gone in at half-time two or three up.

“We should have seen the game out in the second half. We were not clinical enough in either the first or the second half.

“We did not see their 10-minute spell out in the second half. One pass in behind and they had grabbed their goal.” 

The 20-year-old thanked the travelling City supporters who had made the trip south, and is now looking ahead to a positive week on the training field before he and his teammates host Doncaster Rovers next weekend. 

“They are unreal,” he added.

“We always expect that. We know what they are like, they follow us away brilliantly.

“I want to thank everyone who came and made the long journey down. We appreciate it.

“There are always positives and negatives in every game. You have to work and look at both of them. They both go hand in hand.

“We will take the positives out of today and go into the next game looking to continue with those positives and take the negatives out of our performance.

“We have a full week to work on things, get everything ready and sorted for Saturday.

“Going into Saturday, hopefully we will be ready to beat them and take three points.”
