McCALL | A GAME TO LOOK FORWARD TO

20 January 2017

Bantams boss Stuart McCall is anticipating an action-packed encounter this Saturday when City host Millwall in the Sky Bet League One.

Millwall travel to the Northern Commercials Stadium this weekend to take on McCall's men for the eighth match between the two sides in just over two years.

Most of those previous games have been competitive and hard-fought occasions and, with both sides looking to push up the League One table, McCall is expecting no different come Saturday afternoon.

McCall: "I would imagine the atmosphere and the game will be like a cup tie.

"Millwall are a strong side. They have put in some good, consistent performances recently, so we know we will have to be at our best.

"On the flip side though, I'm sure they will know that they will be in for a difficult game themselves.

"I don't think they will come and sit in, looking for a point, I'm sure they will come looking for the win.

"It'll be action at both ends - two good sides going head to head.

"If I was still a player, this would be the sort of game I would really be looking forward to playing in.

"As I've said many times before, we are a match for anyone in this league on our day.

"The players know they let themselves down last Saturday at Shrewsbury so I'm sure they will be right at it this weekend.

"The lads are expecting a battle but they are really raring to go.

"This is a game to look forward to.

"Whether you are a player, coach or supporter, this is the sort of game you should be looking forward to."
