'WE ALL CRAVE SUCCESS, BUT THERE IS A JOURNEY' - GEOFF TOOVEY
Toovey turns his attention to the final six games of the season and preparing for Oldham RLFC this Sunday, as they visit Bower Fold.
Despite being the basement side, Bradford retain the second highest attendance in the Championship. Toovey has been taken back by the resilience of the crowd this year and hopes the Bradford loyal stand by their side.
“They are a very patient mob but I also think that they are a very knowledgeable bunch of fans that know the situation and it is what it is, they are out there to support their team each week, win lose or draw. I am pretty positive they will do it for the next six games.
“I still don’t think that we are down and out, the players have to go out there and play for themselves now and for the team as a collective. There is nothing stronger than a bunch of guys getting together and believing in something for themselves and working hard as a collective for themselves.”
As Toovey and the team begin their provisions for Sunday’s clash with the Roughyeds, they are keeping their foot firmly on the pedal: “I want to win, I am going to play the best team available to me, if that means bringing in some young players, then for the sake of the club then I will do that.
“We all crave success but there is a journey that you have to fight your way through. Everyone knows that there is no such thing as instant success and I think that is what makes success is so fulfilling, that you experience the high and the lows along the way.
“There has been plenty of downtrodden times for all of the fans and players this year, but that is all part of journey and it’ll make success even sweeter when it comes around.”
