Boss Delighted To Have Defender Back

Boss Delighted To Have Defender Back

Bradford might have lost on Easter Monday but there was a definite positive for Phil Parkinson.

James Meredith's return as a second half substitute in the 1-0 defeat to Swindon Town was 'definitely a positive' for the Bantams.

The Bradford boss put the Australian on the bench for the game on Monday and always planned to use him at some point but perhaps not for as much as 45-minutes, which he did when be brought on the full-back at half time in place of injured Nathan Doyle.

Parkinson told the media: 'It was great for Mez just to be back out on the pitch. As I said on Friday, I wanted to give James some game-time between now and the end of the season.

'I've put him on the bench here with the aim of probably giving him 20 minutes or so at the end, but he's played 45 minutes instead.

'He's come through with no ill effects, which is clearly good for him. It is definitely a positive for us to have Mez back.'

Meredith had been out since the start of the year when he broke a bone in his foot during a training session.
