Wary Of Bradford Threat

7 February 2014

Although Wells has moved on, our boss still says Bradford have impressive attacking threat

Bradford City may have struggled to turn some of their recent draws into wins of late, but Steve Davis has warned his Crewe Alexandra players of the Bantams attacking threat. Despite the West Yorkshire club having to cope with the loss of their prolific forward Nahki Wells to Huddersfield Town in the January transfer window, Phil Parkinson acted quickly to bring in a replacement in Aaron Mclean from Premier League side Hull City for an undisclosed fee.

Crewe can move within one point of City if they record an away win at Valley Parade tomorrow afternoon but Davis is wary of their attacking threat.

Steve told the club’s official web-site: “Bradford have had a tough time of it of late in terms of getting wins, but it is a tough league and they have had a decent first season back at this level.

“They have lost Wells in the window, and he was a terrific player for them, but they gone out and got McLean and he has a lot of experience. They have Hanson, who is a big threat in the air and they like to get the ball up to him as quickly as possible and work within your defensive third.

“They have a number of strong and physical players but they also have a lot of skill and pace in their team as well.

“We know that on any given day, anyone can beat anyone. That is how tough it is. It will another tough battle but one we will look forward to. We are confident that we can get something from the game.

  The boss added: “We have focussed on what we need to do to get a result and to make sure we are prepared right. If we can play well as a team then the result should take care of itself.”
