SHAY SETTLING INTO THE SIDE

8 January 2018

Bantams attacker Shay McCartan says he is feeling more at home now in City's team after a run of games in the starting line up.

Following substitute appearances in the league fixtures against Southend United and Peterborough United, McCartan has now started the Bantams' last three games.

The Northern Ireland international scored in the recent victories over Oxford United and Fleetwood Town.

The twenty-three year-old was only denied a third consecutive goal in as many matches by a smart save from Yeovil Town's goalkeeper Artur Krysiak in Saturday's Emirates FA Cup tie.

With the striker now looking to firmly establish himself as a regular in City's starting XI, McCartan is hoping to keep playing his part as the season moves into its second half.

McCartan said: "It was a good Christmas for me.

"I came on against Southend and I thought I did quite well, perhaps could have scored.

"I then got the second half at home to Peterborough before starting against Oxford.

"I knew I had to take my chance in that (Oxford) game and thankfully I felt I did.

"The Fleetwood game after that was a tough one but we managed to get the result.

"I feel I have found my feet now and that I have shown I can play at this level.

"I probably doubted myself a little bit earlier in the season, but I've got through that now.

"I have to keep going now. Keep playing consistently and scoring consistently.

"If I'm doing well then hopefully the team will also be doing well."
