Nahki Wells reckons City have got what it takes to shoot straight through League One.

The ultra-confident striker believes the newly-promoted Bantams are strong enough to be challenging to go up again.

Wells has already set his own sights high with a 30-goal target for his first campaign in the third tier. And he is convinced that Phil Parkinson’s men can make just as big an impact as they move up a level.

Wells said: “Some teams might have the ambition of coming up and wanting to stay. But I think we should have the ambitions of going for double promotion.

“Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of good teams in League One. Some might say a top half finish can be good enough for Bradford but realistically we don’t want to accept that.

“At this time, we are prepared to give 110 per cent to get promotion. If we fall short, we can go again but I’m certainly thinking positive about it.”

With only eight days to go until the big kick-off, City play their final pre-season friendly tomorrow against Doncaster at Valley Parade.

They have won all four games so far, although the Championship visitors will represent a major step-up in class from previous opponents.

But the Bermudian has seen enough in training to suggest that City are raring to go when the serious stuff begins against Bristol City.

Wells added: “This will be my third season in Bradford and this year everyone is even fitter than last time.

“We came back at a good level and we’re probably two steps ahead with less time to go.

“The manager has a good philosophy. Whatever work you put in, you reap the rewards.

“He uses that example with me quite often. The more you run, the more chance that opportunities will come.

“Don’t get me wrong, last season we were probably the fittest team in the league and we reaped our rewards and got promoted. We want to build on that now.”

A lot will hinge on strike duo Wells and James Hanson, who netted 41 goals between them last term. But he also expects Alan Connell to have a big say.

Connell is seen as City’s third-choice forward but still chipped in with nine goals despite making the bulk of his appearances from the bench.

“Alan is a great player and I definitely think League One will suit him more,” said Wells.

“Having him looking over my shoulder last season was great. I knew if I was off form, he would come on and slot right in for me and do well.

“At times I was under-firing or may have been ill and Al would step up to the plate. He scored important goals and made it difficult for me to get back in. In football you need that competition and he’s the perfect player to have slot in behind.

“He’s definitely a team player, he’s not out there for himself. He knows his role and definitely deserves to get a lot of minutes this season.”
