Parkinson: Our moment will come

15 March 2013

City boss Phil Parkinson is adamant the Bantams have the cutting edge required as they enter the final ten-game stretch of the regular season.

Following their goalless draw at Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday, Parkinson's men travel to Exeter City this weekend for the second part of their Devon double-header.

City will have nine league matches to go after their trip to Exeter's St James' Park - six at home and three away.

The Bantams go into this Saturday's encounter with Exeter unbeaten in their last five matches, although four of them have been draws,

Parkinson's side could justifiably argue, however, that they had a realistic chance of winning all four of those drawn fixtures after enjoying a number of bright moments in the recent quartet of games.

The City chief said: "We know that we have to keep working hard and doing our roles properly. Hopefully we will find that little edge to finish off some of our good play. 

"I am sure it will click for us sooner rather than later.

"We've had players during the season unlock the door for us using a moment of magic or a piece of skill and we need that to happen again now.

"We're looking for that first goal - that coolness and precision required to finish off a chance when we make it.

"I know we have the players within our squad to do just that. I don't have to look outside for players who can do that, we have the players here to produce moments of inspiration."

Ahead of his side's match with Exeter, Parkinson also confirmed that James Meredith will make up part of his travelling squad for this weekend's game, 

Meredith, who played twice in the week in the reserves after a bout of glandular fever earlier this year, will take his place alongside the same eighteen players who made up City's starting eleven and bench at Plymouth.
