Bradford City: Nahki Wells told to keep calm and carry on

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: A specialist has assured Nahki Wells he will not aggravate his hip injury by playing against Barnet and Morecambe A specialist has assured Nahki Wells he will not aggravate his hip injury by playing against Barnet and Morecambe

Nahki Wells has been told to ignore his hip problem and carry on regardless through City’s next two home games.

The striker, who was left out last week, is expected to come back in the squad to face Barnet at the Coral Windows Stadium tomorrow and Morecambe on Tuesday.

Wells has been booked in for a possible steroid injection the following day to calm the trouble, which flares up when he strikes a ball hard.

But he has been assured that playing in the meantime will cause no further ill effects.

Phil Parkinson said: “We’ve had it scanned and there’s nothing major going on in there. Nahki hasn’t got any symptoms at the moment because he’s had this period of rest.

“He’s been absolutely fine in training and we’ll have another look after today. It’s now about getting him through these two games and then we can see the specialist.

“We’ll see how he is playing these two at home before possibly having the injection on Wednesday, which they feel will settle the problem down.

“In the meantime he’s got the assurance from the physio and the specialist that whatever he does he won’t make it worse.

“I can remember myself that’s a big thing for players to hear. It puts your mind at rest.

“There will be discomfort but you can just get on with it. There’s no tear in the muscle so you can’t make the problem bigger.”

With Wells available again, Parkinson has choices to make in attack for the clash with bottom club Barnet. Alan Connell comes into contention for his first league start at home after his classy equaliser at Accrington.

And midfield battler Ricky Ravenhill is also added to the squad following his comeback from a knee injury.

Winless Barnet have picked up only one point so far and City will start firm favourites to claim a third straight Valley Parade victory. But Parkinson is stressing the attitude of his team must be spot-on.

“People will see it as a home win but I’ve seen Barnet and they’ve got some good players. We’ll give them the utmost respect.

“It will only be a home win if we approach the game in the same manner we did the last two here. We played really well and, funnily enough, the Fleetwood performance was probably better in terms of a strong all-round 90 minutes.”

Parkinson is looking to exploit Barnet’s shaky confidence by bursting out of the blocks as they did against Wimbledon in their last home outing. Two goals in the opening 12 minutes set City on the way to a crushing 5-1 success.

“We’ve got to really start quick and get Barnet on the back foot. We have players who are prepared to run in behind their back four with or without the ball who can create opportunities.

“We certainly don’t under-estimate Barnet. I know their manager Mark Robson well and he’s a good coach.

“I know he’ll have been working hard this week either to bring in a couple of players or to do something slightly different. I’m sure there will be one or two surprises come tomorrow.

“They’ve got that ability to dig things out and survive and they’ve done that over a period of time.

“I’m sure Robbo will get them going. Despite their start, he will have aspirations of finishing higher than Barnet have finished in previous years, just like we’re trying to do here.

“We had a more compact feel about the team last week and the first half was a good example for the lads.

“We played in a disciplined way and focused on what we had to do with our shape. When we do that, we will create chances.”

Looking forward to it. Just a message to all those getting on naki's back. Give it a rest and get behind the lad. If he goes he goes the only thing that matters this season is he performs for us. If we do well and we show him the love who knows what might happen but all the sniping at him will only drive away a young talent

A few have passed comment (myself included) that we wished Naki had signed the new contract offer, but he hasn't so we move on,I can't say I've heard any negative responces at games so IMO your comment re getting off Naki's back is not necessarily true,I think his agent will have a bigger bearing on Naki staying or going rather than fans adulation or sniping as you put it, but yes we should get behind every player who pulls on the Claret & Amber, heres to 3 points on Saturday followed by another 3 points Tuesday night.

Agree with you 100% macca.

Whether PP picks Nahki or Connell is fine by me. I would like to see Connell get a full game to see what he can really do because he looks a very good forward. However, PP knows what he is doing and it sounds like he is going to go with Nahki in the article above. If he doesn't, then no doubt there will be posters saying PP is punishing Nahki for not signing a contract -so that's: another conspiracy a Consultant, the Physio, Nahki, PP and the Chairmen who would have to be in on it- and is making up the 'HIP injury' story.

If PP does start with Connell, then surely that would be justifiable after the potential he has shown in the cameo appearances he has had? As I say, PP can't make a wrong decision on this for me but for some he will no doubt be wrong which ever we he goes.

I am looking forward to seeing Nahki play on Saturday, and echoing what the previous posts have said, if he decides not to sign a contract and save his next club a few bob, then that is his decision to make. He is a naturally talented player, who has scored some great goals for us, and hopefully will score many more. Good luck Nahki for this Saturday and the rest of the lads.

Come on you Bantams, CTID!

I think Nahki is a victim of some very bad advise from some fat cat agent more interested in lining his own pocket.Im sure if Nahki doesnt sign and leaves for a compensation fee the agent will have done his sums and realised he would get a bigger lump of cash than if Nahki was contracted to us.
Feel a bit sorry for him really young lad obvious talent with work to do still but he has had his head turned just hope hew doesnt end up in football wilderness in a few years time with some agent sat at home counting his money.

No Vic. The forward line is built around Hanson, the team is set to play with Hanson in it, Hanson has been picked by every manager he has been under at City because he is a focal point.

To take him out of the team would need PP to have a hasty rethink about the whole set up he has created and I doubt he is willing to do that as it would mean an admission of incompetence and a fair amount of training ground work. What needs to happen is the team need drilling to play balls at Hanson which give him half a chance of holding onto the ball and using it well, when we do achieve this infrequently during games JH does his best to hold it and use it. When it is wellied at him and either drops out of the sky, making instant control impossible or hammered at him torso height he is against it.

Wells and Connell would be bullied off the pitch by half time, Hanson not only acts as a target man but takes a lot of the stick from defenders which the other two couldn't handle. As I continue to say, his worth isn't just his control(or lack of) or goals, there are many facets both visible and invisible to the big lad's game, some know and see this, others see what they see.

This isn't a slur on Hanson, but his role is very dliuted and sometimes makes us very one dimensional.

Connell scored a good goal and looked lively. But then again, didn't Wells do the same in our last home match?

Had Nahki signed the contract extension on offer, most wouldn't now be clamouring for him to be dropped....!

It's just my viewpoint on James. Having played as a centre forward and only being diddy I always appreciated having someone alongside me who took the blows and knocked the ball into spaces I could run onto.


I've no doubt we will use the Wells Connell combo at somepoint this season but doubt it will ever be as a starting duo. we'll see I suppose.


Out of the games our fans have seen where do they get Connell is an 'intelligent' player?
I'm not saying he isn't but I'm wondering how others have come to the conclusion given the amount of minutes on the pitch they will have seen him playing.

He's got good feet but as those are the tools of his trade I'd hope he would have. His lob last week was as much to do with the flick as it was his execution, that was instinctive rather than intelligent. I'd like to hear some reports bringing the instances of this intelligence, bearing in mind the only games I've missed so far are Watford and Gills.

I'm not digging at Connell or those making the claims, just very interested as it gives a good insight into others thought process.

Now then, somebody remind me how we performed when Jimmy Hanson was out injured. I know we have some good forwards now, probably better than we have had for a while, but nobody who has yet claimed JH is not a good/effective target man and goal-scorer has come within a million miles of getting me to agree to that. I honestly believe JH is capable of holding down a regular place within the Championship. There are better target men than him who would be chosen before JH yes. But he has never looked out of place when playing against Championship sides in Cup Games and I believe that playing with even better players around him he would benefit from the better quality service he would get.

Would I be against playing Wells and Connell together and dropping JH? no, not if PP wanted to try that partnership out. There's not many centre-halves who get the better of JH in the air -which is massive credit to him when the CH should be favourite every time a ball is lumped forward from 50 yds away- we just need a better quality ball as has already been mentioned by PCBA in order to fully benefit from his ability.

Yep. I'd certainly like to give that combination a run together. Wells has the pace and Connell the vision and footballing brain.

This isn't a slur on Hanson, but his role is very dliuted and sometimes makes us very one dimensional.
I would agree with you that for the previous 2/3 seasons that has been the case Waynus -even with Stuart in charge he played to Jimmy's ability to win what appears to be around 95% of the lump it in the air balls-
but I think things are starting to change. We are now using the wide men more because they are capable of beating their opponent and we have a midfield and back four who are capable of getting the ball to them on a more consistent basis. Having said that, I bet their isn't another Club who in this division who wouldn't want JH in their Team.

Hopefully no one will be thinking playing Barnet is a cake walk as like every other club we play, they wont roll over. We need to start fast and keep that tempo up for 90 minutes, if that happens, BCFC should get three points.

For me, we haven't had enough ball from central midfield over the last few seasons, hopefuly that glaring problem has been rectified. Stikers like Bobby Campbell are rare, for me Hanson is the best big centre forward we've had since Mills.

Not having the right manager for a couple of seasons and over-expectancy for the rest of the time. Not that anyone would have known P Taylor wasn't the right man but his outlook and ambitions didn't seem to match the fans, at any point during his tenure, only before.

Impatience and over-expectance with Stu, incorrect appointment in Jacko, over-expectance last season on PP.

Leaving us with this year, where the expectations are once again quite high but more founded in sense than faith

But what you don't seem to grasp is that by signing a long-term deal, he may price himself out of a lucrative big-money move. Look at the problems Taiwo had. Clubs may like young players and their potential, but that doesn't mean they will pay big bucks for that potential. If clubs can snatch him for between £50 and £100k, they will try. However, if the club holding his registration are demanding £250k plus, they will look elsewhere.

And there lies the problem for Nahki

I would agree with you that for the previous 2/3 seasons that has been the case Waynus -even with Stuart in charge he played to Jimmy's ability to win what appears to be around 95% of the lump it in the air balls-

Have you been watching the same games as me? Reid and Hines' delivery has been shocking most of this season. Most of the balls up to Hanson have been head height, with the majority whilst he has had his back to goal. That's why he flicks on more than he is able to attack. In fact, here is a question for you. What is the ratio of flick-ons Hanson has won this season in comparison to efforts on goal, where he has been able to attack the delivery?

Despite the two wingers and Jones in midfield, Hanson still isn't getting the service he needs

Despite the two wingers and Jones in midfield, Hanson still isn't getting the service he needs Waynus1971

No he wasn't; his correction was correct so a little humility perhaps mr vision.
LOL at Mr Knight and Mr Lonnie thinking they know it all.

Mr Vision is correct! I'm guessing you 2 are both middle aged men and have forgotten the correct terms to use since you were at school.

There = It belongs over there

Their = It's theirs, therefore it belongs to them.

They're = They are

Any team in league 2 would want Hanson in 'their' team!

Lonnie and Knight = Idiots!
Danstar, you are wrong and have made yourself look as foolish as Wells' number 1 fan.

If you read Lonnie's original post, you will clearly see he used 'their' incorrectly in the sentence, "I bet their isn't another club in this division...."

He realised the error and corrected it. Now he has people such as yourself telling him he is wrong.

It is you that is wrong

Baffled me as well bcfc1903 all the so called criticism Naki Well's is receiving as my post above I'm disappointed he has not signed the new contract offered to him so if thats the criticism some are on about then I'm guilty,I thought him signing a new contract would have given him more money and City the chance to get a decent transfer fee if he was to go ?.
But what you don't seem to grasp is that by signing a long-term deal, he may price himself out of a lucrative big-money move. Look at the problems Taiwo had. Clubs may like young players and their potential, but that doesn't mean they will pay big bucks for that potential. If clubs can snatch him for between £50 and £100k, they will try. However, if the club holding his registration are demanding £250k plus, they will look elsewhere. And there lies the problem for Nahki
"If clubs can snatch him for between £50 and £100k, they will try. However, if the club holding his registration are demanding £250k plus, they will look elsewhere. And there lies the problem for Nahki" you don't know this to be true! I'm sure City will try and get the best fee they can "if and when another club comes calling" if Naki produces again this season I would say your figure of £250k would not be unreasonable IMO.
