Craig bracing for Bradford City backlash

17 January 2017

"The Bantams will be seeking revenge on Saturday," insists Craig

Tony Craig believes the memories of being dumped out of the play-offs last season will live long in the minds of the Bantams faithful, and the Millwall captain expects the semi-final heartbreak to "add fire" to this weekend's League One clash.

"Bradford City is a difficult place to travel to," Craig told millwallfc.co.uk "The fans will certainly be calling for revenge after last season."

The two sides played out a hard-fought 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture at The Den in September and Craig predicts an equally passionate affair on Saturday. 

"A lot of their players will have been waiting to get another shot at us and that's why we have to be on guard."

Neil Harris has named an unchanged side for the past six matches and the Lions skipper believes stability is key to extending an impressive month-long unbeaten run. 

"It doesn't happen often where a team is in a position to put the same team out week after week. We have had a clean bill of health and that's been crucial to build team cohesion. 

"The gaffer has a squad that he is happy with but there are certainly boys behind us that are champing at the bit to get into the squad."

Tony Craig's positional role has shifted from centre-back to left-back in recent months and admits he has enjoyed the change.

"Im thoroughly enjoying my football at the moment. It's good getting up and down the pitch but I have been feeling it in the legs," he joked.

"Confidence is sky high in the team and we're all looking forward to the next few months and hopefully climbing up the table."
