The Avenue’s victory against Solihull Moors saw the return of fans favourite Martin Drury.
The left back was named in the starting line up, only two months after a knee operation, and he could not hide his delight to be involved again:
‘I’m very happy, it’s been frustrating, it’s still a little sore, but, I’m happy for the players to get three points. They (Solihull Moors) were a good side, big and strong, but, I felt we could have done better at their place. I’m glad we have turned that around today.’
Despite slipping down the league table, Drury highlighted the togetherness of the squad to return to winning ways:
To be fair, none of the lads have been negative and we have worked extremely hard. The break may have helped us, we have re-grouped and with this win under our belts, hopefully we can put a run together now.
Despite the number of rearranged fixtures around the corner, Drury is less than concerned to play twice a week:
We don’t mind, especially me, I can’t wait! I would play three or four times a week. It was a nice three points, and it has given us a good platform to build on and we will train hard this week to be ready for Saturday.’
Bradford’s next fixture will see them visit the home of Cheltenham Town, which is currently shared with Gloucester City, and Drury is hoping for a similar result that was achieved against the Moors:
‘It’s a long way to travel, so we have to make sure we come away with something next week. We are all looking forward to it now, and we still believe we can push up the league to give us half a chance of reaching the playoffs.’
