Davis On Bradford Threat

1 November 2013

Steve Davis has hailed the Bradford strike partnership of Nahki Wells and James Hanson as one of the most potent in Football League but he says his back four can contain the Bantams threat. Davis was relatively pleased with the way his defence limited the chances of Sheffield United’s pair Marlon King and Lyle Taylor last weekend, but was disappointed with our marking at set-plays.

The Bermudan International Wells has recently returned from a troublesome ankle injury and could return at Gresty Road tomorrow.

Steve told the club’s official web-site: “Bradford are a big club who have been stuck in League Two for a few years but Phil Parkinson managed to get them out and they had a terrific season last year. They have kept that going and made a good start to this season.

“They are competing very well and it should be a really good atmosphere tomorrow. They will have a lot of fans there and we will have a good vocal support as well.

“Wells and Hanson are always dangerous. There is the aerial ability of Hanson and the skill and movement of Wells. They compliment each other well and cause defences problems. They are seen as the key threat but Bradford is a good side and they are not just about those two.

“We coped fairly well with the front two of Sheffield United and have done it previously against Preston and Bristol City, so we know we can keep good players relatively quiet.”
