McCALL LOOKING TO TAKE CHARGE AT SALFORD

6 March 2020

Stuart McCall is looking for his players to put their own stamp on the game - when the Bantams travel to Salford City tomorrow (3.00pm).

City face their first-ever visit to the Peninsula Stadium, with over 1,300 supporters set to pack out the away end.

McCall is looking forward to the atmosphere which should be in store and insists his players must rise to the occasion to record victory.

He said: “We have sold out our allocation and are really looking forward to walking out in front of a full away end.

“We have to stamp our authority on the game and start to pick up on our dismal away form.

“It is all well and good speaking about how we need to be better away from home - but now is the time to go and back up our words.

“It should be a really good atmosphere and occasion - as Salford will come out of the traps, as we will be looking to do.

“These are the games the players should be relishing and we are looking forward to it.”

In what will be McCall’s first time facing tomorrow’s hosts as a manager, the Bantams boss is looking forward to the exciting challenge which awaits.

The Ammies added a further eight players to their squad in January and - while valuing the threat they carry - the former Scotland international is hopeful of returning home with three points.

“I went to watch Salford last season while at Scunthorpe and know they are a decent side.

“You only have to look at the squad they have and the way they strengthen in the transfer windows to see how much quality and experience there is.

“They will be very competitive and it will be a tough game, but one we need to impose ourselves on them in to come away victorious.

“The performance against Plymouth last week was very encouraging but, for me, there is still plenty of room for improvement.

“A lot more quality can still be added and we need to be able to back up what we showed last week - on Saturday.”

Tickets for tomorrow’s encounter are completely SOLD OUT - with no pay-on-the-gate option available.
