BRADFORD Town boss Danny Greaves has issued a rallying call amid an important period in the club’s promotion-chasing campaign.

Town, currently third in the Toolstation Premier Division, face sixth-placed Cribbs on Saturday before hosting leaders Street a week later.

A pair of wins could see Bradford challenge for top spot with only a dozen games left to play.

Success against promotion rivals Willand Rovers (3-1) on Saturday and mid-table Shepton Mallet (1-0) on Wednesday, courtesy of Karim Rendall’s goal leaves Greaves’ men five points short of Street.

He said: “I’m very pleased with our performances. “Wednesday’s game against Shepton was a solid, hard fought, win. It wasn’t as fluent as we would’ve liked but after Saturday’s game - which had everything - the second half took its toll on a few players.

“But we were resilient and dug in to earn a big three points.”

“We’re in the middle of a tough run.

“Shepton’s position in the league table is a false one in my opinion. They’re better than that.

“Cribbs are playing exceptionally well with few resources. They’ve done a great job.

“It’s important to gain something this Saturday ahead of our game against Street.”

Greaves is expected to welcome Sam Jordan back this weekend, though he anticipates a number of players to be missing as a result of a heavy recent schedule.

The manager himself is waiting on news of possible action after he was involved in a late altercation.

He said: “A member of their management came into our area and things escalated.

“Hopefully it doesn’t result in a ban for me, that would be disappointing.”
