PARKINSON: WE NEED THAT SAME INTENSITY

7 April 2016

Bantams boss Phil Parkinson says City must ensure that they keep their standards high this Saturday when they entertain Swindon Town.

Following the home victory over Scunthorpe United last time out, Parkinson's men will welcome Swindon to the Coral Windows Stadium this weekend having won three games on the trot and five out of their last six.

With only six league games of the regular season to go though, Parkinson knows City cannot rest on their laurels now and they must look to kick on once again against the Robins.

Parkinson said: "It is all about recreating the same intensity we had in our last home game (vs Scunthorpe) and in recent weeks.

"That will be key both on and off the pitch. We have to maintain standards and keep playing well.

"We will be reminding the players of what they have been doing well and what they need to keep doing.

"We have some players not making the eleven or even the eighteen at the moment but the attitude around the training ground has still been very good. 

"The players are looking very hungry and determined at the moment and we have to maintain that for these last six games.

"I'm glad we've had a clear week this week.

"It has given a few the chance to rest up a couple of bumps. A few others needed the training time, (Kyel) Reidy is a good example of that.

"He missed virtually all of last week's training due to a chest infection, Josh (Cullen) was the same. He didn't train much either previous to last week's game due to international duty and a slight thigh problem.

"We have used this week well and we'll be ready for action come Saturday."
