Skipper Michael Flynn insists Bradford do not fear any of their rivals in League Two despite their low position in the standings.
The Bantams, third from bottom in the table, are one of only four teams in the Football League who have not won away from home this season and on Friday night travel to high-flying Southend, who are unbeaten at Roots Hall since August.
Flynn told City's official website: "We don't fear anybody in League Two. We respect every single team in League Two, but we don't fear playing any side.
"We respected Plymouth fully last weekend and we will certainly respect Southend and their threats this Friday.
"They are second in the league and they aren't there by luck, so we know we'll be in for a really tough night.
"Myself, Luke Oliver and Andrew Davies were talking in the car the other day about the game though and we all agreed that there's never any game that you go into with any fear or doubts."
