Tubbs - We're In Good Spirits

Tubbs - We're In Good Spirits

Despite our winning run coming to an end against Notts County in our last game, striker Matt Tubbs has that we will go to Bradford City in good spirits and with a view to getting back to winning ways and ending the season on a high.

Speaking to the Official Site Tubbs said he knew it wouldn't be an easy game and we only had to look back to the test they posed when we faced them earlier in the season, but he was confident we would end full time with the result we wanted.

'It won't be easy, I've played against Bradford a couple of times and they're a strong, physical team.'

Tubbs admits that the players will be somewhat pleased to have seen the end to this month, given the Bradford match will be our eighth game given postponements earlier in the season and he knows it's certainly taken it's toll on the team and given that we were fresher at points than our opponents he no doubt knows that results that have gone against us are very disappointing, so there's a bit of irony that our successive win streak came at the point where fatigue really should've kicked in.

'We've had a tough run going into the game in terms of fixtures but we'll go there in good spirits and hope for a good result. There's no reason for the players to take this match half hearted, we'll go there to win.'

This is also our final trip away from home in 2013-14 and having notched up only four wins, in amongst eight draws and ten defeats so far, he knows the lads will be doing all they can to make it win number five.

'It's been a mixed bag on the road. We've certainly played better and got results against the so called big teams in the division, so with a big crowd and a big pitch it should suit us.'

What he knows is important though is that you end a season with some momentum because it does make a difference when players return, they are lighter, happier and more raring to go when you finish one season on a high as opposed to a low.

That's exactly what he'll be hoping we do, and then his own future can possibly be determined.
