Bradford City boss Phil Parkinson warns: We're not safe yet
Phil Parkinson has warned City that the survival picture can still change fast.
Parkinson’s men are buzzing for today’s trip to Shrewsbury after their Good Friday win over Southend.
But the City chief insists there can be no thoughts that the job has been done.
While their first win in a month left City sitting pretty seven points off trouble, Parkinson is wary of more twists.
He said: “We’re very conscious of the fact that one game changes things, like it did on Friday.
“We’ve got to keep our eye on the ball.
“We’ll go to Shrewsbury full of confidence but we need to put in the same level of performance and hopefully play in the same style.
“If we do that, we’ll be a difficult team to beat.”
Parkinson hot-footed it from Valley Parade to watch Shrewsbury win 3-1 at Macclesfield.
He knows the size of the task against the only side in the division not to lose at home.
But Friday’s overdue victory has restored faith after the slump in results during March.
Parkinson added: “You can go back to the Gillingham game when we dominated, had three goals disallowed and didn’t win. The more you look at it, the more bizarre it gets.
“I thought last week at Plymouth we were excellent again and had the chances but didn’t take them.
“You could always feel sorry for yourself after that but we haven’t and the response on Friday was excellent.
“We said before the Plymouth game about having five captains in the team and you could see that.”
Kyel Reid and David Syers are pushing for recalls as City check on the fitness of Ritchie Jones and Ricky Ravenhill.
