PETER TAYLOR is backing his Bradford City side to breach the most miserly defence in the Football League.

"The positive thing for us is we go there after back-to-back wins and we don't fear anyone."

City start a run of three consecutive home games with Preston at Valley Parade in the Carling Cup next Tuesday, Southend on Friday and Port Vale two weeks today.
