Williams: Eyeing victories
Centre-half Steve Williams feels Bradford City may have turned the corner after securing back-to-back league victories.
The Bantams secured a 3-1 win against Cheltenham Town on Saturday following the success at Barnet the previous weekend.
The six points have taken some of the pressure off Peter Taylor's side after a poor start to the season had seen the Bantams fall to one place off the foot of the table.
Williams told skysports.com: "The win at Barnet was massive, we were desperate to get the three points but it was important to follow that win with another otherwise it would have been a case of two steps forward and two steps back."
The 23-year old, who is in his second season with the Bantams following his move from non-league Bamber Bridge, feels that if Bradford can go on a good run they can move up the league table and start to push for the play-offs, but he remains cautious.
"We play well on the road, but for some reason at home we've struggled, so Saturday's win was needed and hopefully we can follow that result with another good performance next week (at Burton)," he said.
"The table is very tight at the moment. Another couple of wins and we are top half, but we could drop down very quickly if we don't keep this run going."
Williams had been frustrated with Bradford's poor league start, particularly after some impressive performances in the Carling Cup against Nottingham Forest and Preston North End, but he feels the confidence is building within the team.
"We had some mixed performances early on but you can see everyone has been lifted after the wins, and we are now desperate for the next game to come."
