WOOD: 'THERE IS SO MUCH MORE TO COME'

23 August 2019

“There are so many more levels this team can go to - and we will become unplayable at times.”

That is the view of rising City star Connor Wood, who has been a stand-out performer in recent weeks.

The 23-year-old provided assists for goals in the unbeaten Bantams’ back-to-back victories - over Stevenage and Oldham - helping Gary Bowyer’s men move into second spot.

“We are in a really good place at the moment and our results have been pleasing,” said Wood, who arrived at the Utilita Energy Stadium last summer.

“We are undefeated and have managed three clean sheets in our opening four fixtures.

“We are in a good position and the great thing is that there is so much more we can give. There is plenty to come from this team, yet we are picking up points.

“When everything is working at its best, we will take some stopping. We are nowhere near what we are capable of at the moment.

“Oldham and Stevenage provided us with very different challenges. They play a different way to one another and we learned a lot, so to come out of those games with six points provided us with a confidence boost.

“We want to maintain our place at the top end of the table and we will do it by keeping our heads down.

“It is a great environment to be in, certainly compared to last season, and we are playing with freedom - and smiles on our faces.

“We want to give something back to our supporters. Last season they had to deal with a lot, too much in fact, and we want to make them proud of their football club.

“The support on Tuesday was phenomenal. As players, we feel it on the pitch. It is absolutely huge for us."

City play host to Forest Green Rovers on Saturday, knowing victory could take the Bantams clear at the fourth tier’s summit.

Wood, however, admits he and his fellow team-mates face another stern test - from brand-new opposition.

He added: “We don’t know too much about Forest Green, as they are still fairly new to the EFL.

“But from the homework we have done we know what type of challenge to expect. It is going to be a very different one to what we have gone up against so far this season.

“They like to play and pass. We just need to focus on us and what we can do. We want to record another positive result and it will be extra special to do it in front of our home support.”
