Omar Daley has urged City fans not to expect too much magic from him.

The enigmatic Jamaican was back to his thrilling best in Saturday’s 2-0 win at promotion rivals Gillingham.

Daley netted the first goal and looked a constant threat as City claimed a second straight win to move up to fifth in League Two.

But the winger divides opinion among supporters and is often an easy target when games are not going well.

Daley said: “That doesn’t worry me because the fans have paid to come and see me and I don’t mind if they have a go.

“But sometimes when they watch the game, they need to understand that I’m not going to pick the ball up and run past four or five people every time.

“I try to pick the right moment and sometimes I’ll get into a one against one situation with the defender and take the chance to attack when it comes. But it’s not always easy to do that.

“Everybody comes at me very hard in this league. There are no easy games for Omar because there are people definitely coming to stop you.

“But I will try my best and train hard to get fitter because I want to do well for this team.”

Daley missed two good chances, including a one-on-one, before converting Michael Boulding’s pass with a scuffed shot.

He said: “I will take that all day! I’ve been looking for another goal for a couple of weeks and just waiting patiently.

“I’ve played loads of games and get a lot of chances but I don’t put pressure on myself to get goals. I’m just as happy if a team-mate scores.

“I look at the Bradford City dressing room and there is no player I’m not confident in. Every individual is a good player and I’m proud I’m part of that.”

Boulding sealed victory with his 11th goal of the season and Stuart McCall was full of praise for a display he described as City’s best away this season.

He said: “I thought we played really well at Brentford without getting anything but that win was as good as any. It’s nice to come away and beat a team who are up there.

“We were really good from first to last. There were some big performances throughout the side and it’s really hard to single anyone out.

“We were up against a team who had won four out of five and were in good form and I thought we dominated the whole game.

“There are two massive games coming up now and if we show that same quality, desire and togetherness then I’ll be delighted.”

Skipper Graeme Lee will miss Saturday’s clash with leaders Wycombe after receiving his fifth yellow card.
