Bradford City striker Nahki Wells is confident he will continue his excellent goalscoring record against the Cobblers when the teams meet at Wembley in the npower League Two play-off final.
In what is the first verbal shot in the build-up to the showpiece final, Wells stated his firm belief that he can reach 25 goals this season.
The Bermudan striker has scored five goals in his past six games against Northampton, including a hat-trick at Sixfields last season and the winner at Valley Parade last month.
And Wells believes he will add two more strikes to his tally for the campaign of 25, and pass the target he set himself during the summer.
“Twenty-five is the exact number I set out for myself to score at the beginning of the season so I’m delighted to reach it,” Wells told the Bradford Telegraph & Argus.
“But I know there are more to come yet. I’ve got two more in my locker – I’ll save them for Wembley.
“I’ve scored against Northampton already so I’m confident that I can do it again and help us get promoted.
“It’s a big occasion, not only for myself but all the players. It’s been a phenomenal season and we all deserve it.
“The chairmen and fans are finally happy that we’ve got a team that can do the city and the club proud.”
