PRITCHARD HOPEFUL SUPPORTERS CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Harry Pritchard hopes City’s travelling supporters are able to spur their team on to victory, in tomorrow's trip to Morecambe.

A sell-out away end of over 1,600 Bantams fans is expected at the Globe Arena for Saturday afternoon’s 3.00pm clash.

And Pritchard believes this support is capable of pushing Gary Bowyer’s men over the line, in what he insists will be a tough match.

The midfielder said: "To have sold out over 1,600 away tickets is fantastic and a credit to our supporters.

"Hopefully, they will be able to help us through what will be a difficult challenge.

"Any team can beat any team, in this division, which we are all well-aware of.

"We are expecting one of them games where Morecambe raise their performance levels, because of the occasion. It is a very big game.

"Even though they have not started too well, we know they will give us a tough match."

Pritchard is relishing his new role in the centre of midfield, following last week’s win over Swindon Town.

The 27-year-old was shifted into the middle of the park in a slight change of system and maintains he is more than happy to be deployed there.

The former Blackpool man added: "Gary (Bowyer) knows I can play in central midfield. He trusts me in that position.

"He played me there while I was at Blackpool, so I already have the experience and know-how in the role.

"I enjoy playing in the middle then, when you have two tricky wingers like Zeli Ismail and Dylan Connolly who have the ability to tear full-backs up, it works out for everyone and certainly helps the team.

"I do not mind where I am playing, I just want to be starting games. I will be more than happy to play there again."

Over 1,600 supporters are set to descend on the Globe Arena tomorrow, with away tickets officially SOLD OUT.
