insisted Bradford City will go into the new year in their strongest position since he joined the board during the Nineties.
The Bantams are enjoying a fine season with Phil Parkinson’s side riding high in League Two and also through to the semi-finals of the Capital One Cup, where they will face Aston Villa over two legs.

Both games will be televised live by Sky, earning City around £320,000 in fees.
