Stuart McCall has urged City to keep chasing their Wem-bley dream by declaring: It’s not like we’re going to the moon.

The Bantams can kill off play-off rivals Dagenham tomorrow – if they win for the first time in nine games.

Despite their shocking form, McCall insists a top-seven finish – and a potential final at Wembley – is still an achievable target.

He said: “There’s no finer place than Wembley and if that can’t inspire you, nothing can.

“To go there, we’ve got to win football games. But it’s not a dream that can’t be made; it’s not like I’m going to fly to the moon next week.

“It’s a dream that’s in our hands. But Dagenham will be saying the same, Chesterfield, Shrewsbury, even Morecambe now.”

City triumphed 4-1 on their only previous visit to Victoria Road last season. But they head south having won just once away in five months.

McCall added: “Confidence is a big factor in football and only comes with winning. A result tomorrow would lift everyone.

“I wouldn’t mind if we were the poorest team in the world and scored with our only shot on target that was three yards offside.

“But you’ve also got to look after your team-mates. If people are trying to do the right things, you can never criticise.

“That’s when you need everyone around you to rally round. The whole squad have got to help each other.”

Dagenham, two points behind City with a game in hand, have lost seven times at home and were beaten by a last-minute Gillingham goal on Monday.

But McCall warned: “They are the most effective team I’ve seen at Valley Parade without a doubt. Everyone knows their roles, they strangle you and do it very effectively.

“They have a good front two and we’ve been working this week on what to expect.

“It won’t be pretty pass, pass, pass in the middle of the park. They’ll stick the ball in behind and try to squeeze up and it’s how we deal with it.

“If you’re not up for fight, you will go under. We have to stand up and be counted.”
