IT WAS a special moment shared with 1,700 others.

Just imagine how it’s going to feel like when the whole of the Kop join in.

That’s what Aramide Oteh is dreaming of as he looks to build on last week’s first goal in a City shirt.

The universal joy after his decisive finish at Morecambe emphasised the growing reconnect between players and supporters as bitter memories of last season are pushed further into the background.

The substitute striker disappeared in a mass of bodies from the pitch and stand as the travelling army gate-crashed his celebrations.

It also prompted a new chant in his honour: “Ole, ole, ole, ole, Oteh, Oteh.”

Having broken his Bantams duck, the on-loan QPR frontman has now set his sights on repeating the trick on home soil and earning an even louder chorus.

“I like that song,” he smiled, “and hopefully I’ll hear it quite often. It would be great to have that again at Valley Parade.”

The opportunity is there as City head into back-to-back home games against Crawley this weekend and Port Vale next Tuesday.

Oteh is yet to start in the league but is another hungry member of the squad nudging Gary Bowyer for more game-time.

The Bantams boss had commented on his sharpness in training before the trip to Morecambe and was not surprised to see him on the scoresheet.

Oteh appreciates he is behind regular front duo James Vaughan and Clayton Donaldson in the pecking order. But he intends to pick up as many tips as he can while pushing them all the way.

He added: “I learn a huge amount from them. I won’t say what age Clayts is but he looks after himself well.

“It’s the same with Vaughany, they are like role models on and off the pitch. It’s good to learn things off them to help me improve my game.

“What you do in training goes towards how you play on a Saturday. That’s my aim to keep on working hard and then try to show more of that when I get the chance.

“You always want to try and make an impact when you come off the bench.

“There have been 10 games already since I’ve been here so there are plenty of chances to get going.”

Bowyer felt Oteh could have had a hat-trick at the Globe Arena. The young striker was determined not to let an earlier miss with a close-range header put him off when he found the room to finally get off the mark.

“I’ve got to be scoring that header so I was really glad I could put one in,” he said.

“I knew another chance would come along and knew I’d have to take it and luckily I did.

“I’ve been waiting to score for a while, so I was buzzing when it came.

“I’m feeling sharp and enjoying my football. The fans are great and the players and staff are encouraging me to express myself.”

With 16 points in the last seven games, the momentum is building for City as they sit in an automatic promotion spot.

Oteh knows Bowyer will ensure his players remain grounded but he can sense that things are beginning to fall into place.

He said: “You can feel it. Previously we had been winning but the performance hadn’t really been there.

“I’m seeing it now from the game against Swindon and last Saturday.

“When I came in, there were a few players who had just arrived and were still settling in.

“We would play well in spells but we didn’t have that togetherness because we hadn’t really trained or play much as a group.

“Now as the weeks have gone on, you can see it’s coming along nicely.

“We want to push on in these two home games. Hopefully it will be a great fortress.”
