THE BIG PUSH IS ON! CROWD SUPPORT NEEDED FOR FINAL FIVE

13 April 2016

The Big Push is on, and we need your help!

Phil Parkinson's Bantams have just five important games of the regular season to go as City look to ensure a positive conclusion to their 2015/2016 campaign. 

 

City kick off their final five games with a trip to Shrewsbury Town this Saturday before travelling to Coventry City the following Tuesday, and your support could make all the difference in these vital fixtures.

 

With four wins on the bounce and six victories out of the last seven, Parkinson's in-form players have put City in a great position in the league table.

 

Nothing has been achieved yet though - far from it - so it is going to need a team effort on and off the pitch to give the club every chance of making this a memorable season.

 

City's Chief operating officer James Mason said: "We speak about the fans being the 12th man and we cannot underestimate the role they can play in the next five games.

 

"Speaking with Phil yesterday, he was saying how important it is for the team to have that support in big numbers home and away – believe you me, they do make a difference.

 

"What has been significant the whole season is how home attendances have been consistently the second-highest in the division by some way.

 

"We've also been really impressed with the amount of away following. We took 3,886 to Sheffield United, 2,908 to Blackpool, 2,584 to Doncaster, 2,582 to Wigan – and had both ends at Bury in the FA Cup with 3,489 of our fans.

 

"Compare that to other away followings in the Championship and Leagues One and Two and we really have got something good going on and off the pitch these days.

 

"Coventry on Tuesday night is another huge game at a big stadium and it would be great to see another large following there as well.

 

"It's been a long time since we've been as high as this in the football pyramid. This is a real pivotal moment in the club's history."

 

Along with focusing on City's forthcoming away matches, the club are also looking into possible pre-match activities for the Bantams' next fixture at the Coral Windows Stadium against Walsall on Saturday 23 April. 

 

Mason added: "The aim is to build up a real partisan atmosphere. The Swindon manager, Luke Williams, admitted he has never seen an atmosphere like it on Saturday and we want to repeat that for the last two home games."
