'TARGET COMPLETED' FOR BANTAMS AHEAD OF MILLWALL TIE

29 December 2014

Bantams boss Phil Parkinson says City can go into their F.A Cup third round tie against Millwall at the weekend in full attack mode after extending their unbeaten run to nine games with victory over Notts County on Sunday.

Billy Knott's first half winner against County made it seven wins out of nine for Parkinson's Bantams and ensured they remain in the top five of Sky Bet League 1 going into the second half of the season.

Such is City's current impressive form, they haven't actually lost now since before their first round encounter in the F.A Cup at FC Halifax Town back in early November.

With the Bantams' tails up then going into their match at The Den, Parkinson knows City can go into their tie with the Championship side this coming Saturday full of confidence.

Parkinson said: “We had our own personal goal over this recent period.

"After we beat Dartford (in the FA Cup), the aim was to go to Millwall in the next round with our unbeaten run still intact. 

"Once the draw was made, we said to ourselves that we wanted maintain our current form and be able to go into the Millwall tie still in a strong league position.


“This (the Notts County match) was the last game for us before the cup and that’s a good little target completed. 


"We can go there now and express ourselves and be really confident."
