JULIAN RHODES last night 
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.

Bradford also face a Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Northern Area semi-final at Crewe Alexandra in between those two ties against Villa, which will take place on Tuesday, January 8 at Valley Parade and Villa Park a fortnight later. Both games will be televised live by Sky, earning City around £320,000 in fees.
