Thorne ready for a challenge

Bradford City striker Peter Thorne sees no reason why he can't add to his impressive goal tally when the Bantams play Wycombe this weekend - the team with the tightest defence in League Two. Thorne has already found the net 11 times this term and is the division's leading marksman while the Chairboys have only conceded six goals. The veteran former Cardiff City striker told the Telegraph & Argus: "I look at it as a big challenge. I'm not the sort of person who thinks 'oh no, this will be a hard battle'. "It would be great to score against them. They've got a good record but you should try and use it to your advantage as an extra incentive. "If I do play, I'll expect a bit more special attention as well, being the top goalscorer at the moment. The defenders will know they have to raise their game but that's football and it's why I love it. "There are always going to be chances knocking round with the way we play and it's a promising sign that we've not yet been that good really, but we're still right up there."
