Evans hoping to get one over on former employers

Midfielder had a successful spell with the Bantams

Midfielder Gareth Evans is hoping to get one over on his former employers when Town take on Bradford City at Highbury on Boxing Day.

Evans, who had a spell with the Bantams between 2009 and 2011, made 85 appearances for the West Yorkshire outfit.

“It's a big day for me because I used to play for them. We’ve gone a few games now without a win but it doesn't feel like that with the performances we’ve put in.

"If we maintain that standard then come Boxing Day we've a very good chance of winning the game, no matter what club we're playing against."

Evans was instrumental in the 1-1 draw at Coventry last weekend as he provided the cross that Sky Blues Andy Webster headed into his own goal.

And it was a result that disappointed the midfielder given how well the Cod Army played, especially during the first 45.

"It was probably the best we've played all season, they struggled to get near us.

"We were running past them and we had some good opportunities to go two or three up.

“You know when you go to a place like that and you're a goal up at half time you're going to have a job to do second half.

"It wasn't to be, and they ended up getting one back and sharing the spoils. That's football, it just wasn't meant to be."

"We dominated the game that much after 45 minutes, we definitely deserved a win but like the gaffer said to us we can't get too disheartened.

"We've gone to a massive club and got a point. It's now about taking the positives into the Bradford game."
