RICHARDS-EVERTON IMPRESSED BY PLYMOUTH WIN

1 March 2020

Ben Richards-Everton was pleased with City's performance, following a 2-1 home victory over Plymouth Argyle. 

Two first-half goals secured three points for the Bantams and the defender praised his team-mates' display - despite testing conditions. 

Richards-Everton stated: “First and foremost, it is nice to get the win, especially considering the conditions - which were difficult for both sides.

"We have a good home record and it was great to be able to continue that. 

“We knew what kind of game it was going to be and it proved a good win against a very good team. 

“It has been disappointing for everybody, recently, and a lot has changed in recent weeks, but we have been unfortunate in games in the sense of being unable to see them out. 

“But, against Plymouth, we just about saw the game out and got the win. We had a few good chances to put the game to bed to make it three of four.

“Then we conceded which we were disappointed about, because we wanted a clean sheet.

“But, even with nine men, you could tell they were a good team. But, we won the game and now we can just look on to the next one. 

“All we can do now is take the positives and get as many wins as we can - over the remainder of the season.”

City's No.5 peeled off at the back post to notch his second goal of the season and his first on home soil. 

Having netted, Richards-Everton hopes to be able to contribute with more goals, before the end of the season.

He added: "Scoring at home was a brilliant feeling and I was happy to have helped the team record an important win.

“It was a relief for me, personally. Obviously, I just want to get as many as I can until the end of the season. 

“I should probably be on five or six goals - at this stage of the season - with my height, but unfortunately it just has not happened. 

“Hopefully, if we can grab more wins I can chip in with more goals, as well.”

Tickets for next week's 3.00pm trip to Salford City are SOLD OUT, with over 1,300 Bantams set to make the trip to the Peninsula Stadium (March 7).
