MILLER BACKING CITY'S 'ATTACKING THREAT'

29 December 2018

George Miller says the Bantams’ attacking threat will be key in City’s hopes of victory at Rochdale this afternoon.

David Hopkin’s side travel to the Crown Oil Arena aiming to again climb out of the relegation zone (kick-off 3.00pm).

City have scored 15 goals in six games and striker Miller - who has himself bagged five this season - believes the goals will keep on coming against today’s opponents.

Miler said: “It is a winnable game for us, so we will go into it with the confidence and belief we can get something from the game.

“We have been attacking well in the last few games and it has worked for us.

“Our interchanging of play has grown stronger over the last few weeks.

“We know our strengths and can adapt and utilise those on the field to better our chances of winning.

“Other than the Sunderland game, the goals kept coming and we have to continue to ensure we get the results.

“If we maintain the performances we have been displaying, there is no reason why we can’t get the three points.”

Wednesday’s controversial defeat to Sunderland saw City slip back into Sky Bet League One’s dropzone.

However, Miller is adamant the Bantams have what it takes to escape the bottom four at the first time of asking.

The Middlesbrough loaneee added: “It has been good to improve our performances but, ultimately, you are judged on wins and we have to continue to pick them up - especially against teams around us.

“The feeling in the squad after a win is brilliant and we want it to continue after a good vein of form.

“We went to Sunderland, wanting to get the win and it didn’t happen. But we move on.

“These games coming up are vitally important against teams around our position in the league.

“We have slipped back into the relegation zone but we know a few good results on the bounce will give us a bit of separation from the bottom four.

“That is the next aim and we will give our all in the next two games to try get the wins we want.

“We are playing well as a group and it has helped us push on. But we are not out of the fight yet.

“We know that with a few good results we can climb the table and we are going to try do it.”

Supporters travelling to the Crown Oil Arena can pay on the gate this afternoon, with more than 2,000 seats available.
