'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Stepping Up The Plans

Phil Parkinson is still very much focused on the remaining two league one games but is also starting to turn his attentions towards the players he could bring to Bradford this summer.

First and foremost he needs to decide which players he currently had he wants to keep at Valley Parade, or at least look to keep by offering them new contracts? With James Hanson, Aaron Mclean and Andrew Davies the only 'first-team regulars' remaining under contract beyond the end of the season it could be quite a summer rebuild!

Parkinson stressed that the remaining game are still in his focus but also knows that unlike last season with the Bantams involved in the league two play-off final, so unsure what league they would play in, they have the advantage of being able to plan early and steal a march on rivals in the transfer market.

The Bradford boss told the Telegraph & Argus: 'We've got an advantage now over teams who are either in the play-offs or have things to play for. Those teams have got to be concentrating more on what they are doing at this moment.

'We found that last year. We've got to use that to our advantage.

'Although I've been focusing very much on the games, of course we've been watching players, speaking to agents over the last few months and checking out the availability of people for next season. That's what we've got to do now.'

Parkinson felt that the players that earned Bradford a place in league one deserved a chance to play in it; he will now assess his options over the summer and decide what is the best way to go.

Are you expecting a squad overhaul this summer?
