DEREK Adams has named the five players to get City back on the goal trail.

The Bantams have had 35 scoring attempts in the last two games – but converted only one of them.

Adams remains confident the goals will come again because of the sheer weight of chances being created.

And he has pinpointed the men he expects to lead the charge.

“We are creating opportunities, not just for Andy Cook but for other players,” said the City boss.

“Charles Vernam has already scored and assisted this season, (Alex) Gilliead has assisted but not scored just yet but has been in very good areas, Callum Cooke has scored and assisted and (Gareth) Evans hasn’t scored but has only been in lately.

“It’s important that these five players are the ones that are going to be the main goal-scorers in the team.

“We’ve also got good opportunities from Callum’s delivery at set-plays and scored goals from Niall Canavan and Paudie O’Connor.

“And full backs as well get into the penalty area with Oscar (Threlkeld) doing that more than Liam (Ridehalgh) last weekend.

“We have got the possibility of scoring goals in these areas.”

City have failed to score in three of their last four outings, including the Papa John’s Trophy loss to Lincoln, but Adams does not see it a problem area.

“We are the fifth highest goal-scorers in the division so far and we have created a lot of good opportunities.

“But we obviously have to put them in the back of the net and that has been the issue in the last two games.

“Against Walsall and Salford, there were a lot of blocked shots in the games. Salford also had many players in and around that area.

“In both games, goalkeepers have made very good saves – the one from (Ollie) Crankshaw against Walsall was unbelievable and there were two excellent ones on Saturday.

“We are getting into positions to score goals, which is the most difficult thing to do. Now we just have to find the finishing touches.”

Adams expects skipper Canavan to come back fine from the hamstring injury that is currently keeping him out for three weeks.

He added: “Niall has a history with these injuries as does Lee Angol.

“When you have that, it’s how strong you make other areas of the body to compensate for that lack of strength in that area.”
