Andrew Davies column: Bradford City fans won’t want us to end with a whimper
Andrew Davies column
Tranmere are in for a shock if they think we’re already on our holidays.
They probably look at us as the ideal opponent in their position. I know I’d fancy it if the tables were turned and we were at home to a team safe in mid-table.
But if they reckon we’re just going to turn up and roll over, then they don’t know the atmosphere in our camp and the way we are.
We’re not the sort of club who will make it easy for anyone and we’ll go out there and give it 100 per cent.
It was important that we won our last home game and now we want to finish the season with another three points. But I know which boat I would rather be in.
There are going to be a lot of nerves around the place because there’s so much at stake. Tranmere know they have to beat us to have a realistic chance of staying up.
If it was me and I was in their situation, I would be giving it every last ounce of energy to get the result. I’m sure that’s how the Tranmere lads will see it and come at us all guns blazing.
But it’s massive for us to finish the first season back in League One safely in the middle. Three more points would take us up to 59 and possibly finishing in the top half, which is a good effort.
There have been good times and bad this season but I think everyone would have been happy with that, especially with losing Nahki and having a few injuries along the way.
We could have almost 2,000 fans over there and it’s going to be a bit of a party in the away end. We don’t want to disappoint them by going out with a whimper.
And for some of the players, it could be their last Bradford game. They are not all going to get contracts so will want to go out on a high.
Sometimes you play well on the final day and the manager might change his opinion – you never know.
