PAUL Caddis hasn’t detected any gloom since he walked into Valley Parade – and he’s not picking up on any now.

There were some boos after the Fleetwood loss as City dropped a place in the increasingly frantic fight for League One survival.

But Caddis has witnessed no twitchiness among the squad ahead of another crucial clash with Plymouth.

The experienced right-back walked in to a dicier situation in November when the Bantams were bottom and slipping well adrift.

With the gap to safety one point now, despite last week’s defeat, he is not going to get too panicky about the current position.

Caddis said: “Since I’ve come in, I’ve not really caught on to the doom and gloom.

“There was supposedly this cloud hanging over the club. It was well reported that was the case but I’ve not seen it from the inside.

“From the day I came in, training has been positive and there have been smiles on faces from everyone.

“There have been ups and downs but tell me a football club that don’t get that over a full season. We’ve been doing all right but we need to keep looking after ourselves.”

City have only jumped above the relegation line once since Caddis came in – when they enjoyed a brief respite for four days over Christmas.

But Caddis feels the mood in the dressing room has remained determined.

“I would be lying if I said it wouldn’t be better being out the bottom four than in there,” he added.

“But as a club we need to look after ourselves first and foremost. Do what’s best for Bradford City and don’t worry about any other results.

“If we get the results we know we’re capable of, then come the end of the season the table doesn’t lie.

“We’re confident inside the building that we can get safe and move further up the table.”

Fleetwood boss Joey Barton admitted he was “baffled” that City were still struggling when he looked at the names on the team line-up.

Caddis is convinced they still have enough to pull through when it matters.

He added: “I can’t say we shouldn’t be in this position because we are. It is what it is at the moment.

“But we’ve definitely got the quality within the squad, the management and staff behind the scenes that we can all push on together and get out of this situation.”
