Bradford secured another season in league one a few games ago and are now set to finish comfortably in midtable.

That represents, on the whole, a good first season back in league one for the Bantams but Phil Parkinson is expecting more from his side next season and is already setting higher targets.

Bradford’s boss admits that he is looking for to ‘the close season’ but with Bradford, who average more than 13,000 attendances for games at Valley Parade, better than league two and league one in stature he is looking to take them higher.

Last season Bradford were celebrating promotion from league two to league one, he is disappointed that this weekend isn’t going to see similar scenes but is looking for a slight climb up the table with victory over Tranmere Rovers, who look to be going down.

Parkinson told he media, following the win over Crawley Town: ‘I am looking forward to the close season.

‘Bradford are not a League Two club or a League One club – we aim to be higher than that – and I am excited about the challenge.

‘We are going to finish in mid-table and we can go up another place if we win at Tranmere in our last match when Tranmere will be fighting for their lives.

‘Unfortunately, though, we won’t be one of the teams celebrating at the end of the season, but I want to be one of those teams and I am determined to reward our fantastic fans.’

Do you think that Parkinson can take Bradford to the championship, and higher?
