Graham Alexander admits his side must become more consistent to reach that next level, ahead of Saturday’s trip to face Harrogate Town.

The Bantams come into the game on the back of three-straight defeats, from which the City chief wants his side to improve their consistency, to take them and their results up a notch.

The Bantams boss accepts the last three home games have been disappointing, with the want and need to improve as the season is drawing to a close. 

“The next level is consistency,” he said.

“In my time at the club, we have had good periods, and good runs of form. But we have gone from going six games in a row won, to the last three games.

“We need to eradicate that from our game, tap into what we have done well, and find that consistency to keep producing.

“There is no secret we have let ourselves down at home - we have to fix that if we want to be a successful club going forward.

“We still have games here. We have to do our best to finish the season strong at home.

“We have let our supporters down over the last three games at home, and there is a determination to finish the season off strong.”

Alexander also wants his side to improve their attacking output in the coming games, believing it is not just down to the attacking players for City, but that more goals need to come from all over the pitch in order to be successful.

Ahead of Saturday's visit to the EnviroVent Stadium, and ahead of the final eight matches of the season, the Bantams boss wants his players to view every outing, both at home and away, as an opportunity to restore pride. 

“We need to improve our quality in the final third,” Alexander added.

“That comes from the whole squad, not just the attacking players. We need to add goals from all over the pitch.

“We need to add goals from set-pieces, from outside the box. There is a responsibility on the whole squad, the staff, and on me, to improve the output.

“I do not want to feel like a welcome break from not playing at home. If there is a issue, running away from it is not the answer. It is not the way to fix the issue, not a way to get better.

“We want to go into the game with the opportunity to come away feeling good about ourselves, to be able to restore the pride for the supporters.”

REMINDER: Tickets for Saturday's clash are SOLD OUT, with supporters asked not to attempt to purchase tickets in the home end
