CITY have been putting in extra attacking work in training after Gary Bowyer admitted: “We should have more goals.”

His side have scored 15 from their first 11 games in League Two – only three teams in the top 10 have netted less.

The Bantams are not lacking in chances and Bowyer insists the conversion rate must improve going into tomorrow’s clash with Swindon at Valley Parade.

He said: “That would be a fair reflection to say we've not scored enough if you were looking at the first 11 games. As a group, I think they would tell you the same.

“Individually and collectively, we should have had more goals for how we have been in the attacking third.

“We’ve had the conversation this week and focused a lot of our work on the attacking play.

“You look if they are stood still in the box or not on the move looking for a chance. But you can’t level that at any of our strikers or wide men.

“They are all wanting to get on the end of something.

“It is sometimes just a case of keeping doing what we have been and then it will come. We are creating a hell of a lot of chances.”

James Vaughan’s one-game ban means a chance for either Shay McCartan or Aramide Oteh alongside Clayton Donaldson in attack. Bowyer believes both can make their mark against a Swindon side who have not lost away.

He said: “Shay McCartan scored in a game we had behind closed doors this week so that will do his confidence the world of good.

“We’ve seen the impact Remi has made off the bench already. Last weekend he nearly caught the goalie out with how quickly he took his chance.

“He’s a natural goalscorer so is obviously someone who comes into contention.”

Vaughan got his fifth booking for dissent but Bowyer believes he has been harshly treated with a couple of the other yellow cards.

He won’t try to tone down the striker’s competitive nature.

“You can’t take it away because that’s his game,” said the City boss. “He gives the centre-halves a really hard time and that’s what we want him to do.

“In this day and age, people aren’t allowing old-fashioned challenges. The world has gone soft and so has football.

“You listen to Roy Keane and Graeme Souness on a Sunday and a lot of what they say is 100 per cent right.”

Swindon are two points ahead of City in fifth spot but Bowyer reckons the League Two table has still not settled down after two months.

“You can go all the way down to teams in 20th place at the moment. It will probably be another 10 games before you have a real idea of what's going on.”
