CHARLIE Wyke aims to give City a heads up at League One leaders Peterborough tomorrow.

The Bantams battering ram has scored more goals with his head since the beginning of last season than any other player in the top four divisions.

Eleven of Wyke's haul of 28 in that time have come in the air, including two in his hat-trick against Bristol Rovers.

He has now scored ten for City – but only once away from Valley Parade.

Stuart McCall joked: "If I leave him out then everyone will know why!

"It's a strange one but I don't think he had any opportunities at Walsall the other week.

"I'm sure Charlie won't have given it any thought but he'll still be looking forward to improving that, starting tomorrow.

"His number of headers is a great stat and he is certainly strong in the air. He's always a handful for defenders.

"But there's a whole lot more to him than just that; his hold-up play, he works hard with his finishing and his determination and desire.

"We've actually got four good attackers of the ball now – Nat Knight-Percival, Matt Kilgallon and Romain Vincelot, as well as Charlie. They are four strong lads and a threat at set-pieces."

Peterborough have conceded only twice in five games to top the division on 13 points. They can also add former National League top scorer Ricky Miller to a line-up that has remained unchanged.

It promises to be a good yardstick for the Bantams on the back of their most convincing performance of the new season.

McCall said: "The lads have kept it up all week. I said we had a really good session on the Thursday after getting over the Walsall hangover and we've carried that on.

"They know what to expect from us in training. Everyone can have a laugh and joke and the atmosphere can be relaxed but when we're training it has to be sharp.

"You train how you play. We don't want sloppiness and casualness, you're after that good tempo at all times and it has been this week.

"Good training and playing well doesn't always go hand-in-hand but it gets you into good habits.

"The key is to create an environment when lads are looking forward to coming in to training. They enjoy each other's company but they also want to get out on the grass to learn and improve – and ultimately succeed.

"As a coaching staff, we're all meticulous in what we do. We're all switched on and have the same work ethic, which is what you need."

Adam Thompson trained with his new team-mates for the first time yesterday and cannot wait to get involved.

The on-loan Bury defender said: "The lads made me feel welcome and there seems to be a great togetherness around the place. It's been easy for me to come in.

"You look around at the quality of players and think they're definitely going to be up there near the top of League One again this year.

"From what I've seen on the telly last week and the results so far, it bodes well for a good season."
