Bradford City: Play-offs still the target - McLaughlin

Jon McLaughlin insists Bradford City can still reach the League Two play-offs.

City's season is in danger of petering out after three straight losses, but keeper McLaughlin – who played his first game in just under three months at Aldershot Town on Tuesday – says no-one at Valley Parade is throwing in the towel.

City are currently six points behind Bury, in the final play-off place, having played two games more than the Gigg Laners.

But Peter Taylor's men, who host Burton tomorrow, could welcome back midfielder Michael Flynn, who is set to feature after a lengthy injury absence.

McLaughlin, who impressed in place of the ill Lenny Pidgeley against the Shots, said: "Some wins have got to come sooner rather than later, but we're definitely confident we can still get in the play-offs.

"If you get a good run, you can make a good challenge. You find in this league, things can change very quickly – you can go a long way with a few good results and we shouldn't get too downhearted."
