Bradford (Park Avenue) goalkeeper Steven Drench has claimed that he and his teammates are relishing the prospect of another tough game ahead of Stockport County’s visit tomorrow.
The experienced stopper has kept clean sheets in both of the club’s home wins so far, and was particularly impressive on Tuesday night as he proved to be a thorn in the side of Spennymoor Town’s attacking contingent.
Speaking after the 1-0 victory over the Moors, Drench discussed the the importance of the win, the competitive nature of the division and the upcoming test against Stockport.
“We came unstuck against Leamington on Saturday, so we wanted to put in a performance against Spennymoor and we have done,” explained the goalkeeper.
“We started the season by playing against sides that we’d like to think will be up there at the end of the season, but Leamington was a tough place to go as well. People assume, because of where they finished last season, that we had a right to go there and win but no team does.
“Anyone can beat anybody in this league and some of the results have showed that. With the exception of Chorley, no team has set the world alight and it just shows how tight the league will be this season.
It’s still early days and a lot of teams are still sussing out their best eleven. It’s a case of feeling each other out, but we’ve won three of our first four games and we’d have taken that if it was offered to us at the start of the season. We’re looking forward to another tough game on Saturday.”
Bradford face Stockport County at the Horsfall Stadium tomorrow, with the action kicking off at 3pm. Admission is priced at just £12 for adults, £9 for concessions, £7 for students and £2 for under-16s.
