Omar Daley is loving life on the left.

The Jamaican paceman came to Bradford City as a right winger but the emergence of Joe Colbeck has seen him switched to the other side on a regular basis.

The naturally right-footed wideman is always keen to cut inside using his stronger foot and exploit the space just outside the box.

It is a manouevre that has paid rich dividends in the last two games, with Daley beating his man before scoring from distance against Darlington and then Grimsby.

He said: “I’m enjoying it now on the left. I can go both ways – down the outside or inside.

“It is always a good option from the left. If I am on the right and I cut in, I am on my weaker foot.”

“There is much more to come but my luck has turned a bit.

“I’ve been cutting inside like against Darlington and Grimsby all season but the keeper’s been making good saves, people having been heading off the line and things like that.”

Daley has played an important role in both the last two matches, despite having played only 48 minutes in the two combined.

After his equaliser as a second-half sub against Darlington, he lasted just 21 minutes at Grimsby after being sacrificed for defender Tom Clarke following the dismissal of Matt Clarke.

It was a real shame coming so soon after his stunning opener, which must be an early candidate for goal of the season.

But Daley said: “I was a bit disappointed but it was for the best of the team to bring a defender on.

“He’s (Stuart McCall) the gaffer and he has to make those big decisions.”

Daley is sure to want to play a bigger part in tomorrow night’s clash with Bury, particularly as he is suspended for the Barnet match on Saturday after picking up a fifth yellow card on Friday for dissent.

However, he added: “If he wants to play me for 20 minutes again and I score, I don’t mind. It’s up to him.

“He’s the gaffer and I’ll do whatever to benefit the team. No man is an island.”

McCall admits Daley needs to be more disciplined in his behaviour towards referees.

The player has been fined for his indiscretions, with the City boss saying: “He gets frustrated, I understand that, and sometimes you get booked for nothing, but you’ve got to give respect.

“Back-chatting isn’t going to change anything and he’s got to learn and learn fast. It’s disappointing that we’re missing him.

“He will certainly feel it in the pocket."
