Mark Yeates arrived with quite a reputation last summer but last season was, on the whole, a season that he will be keen to forget.

However the midfielder isn’t looking to write off his Bantams career, far from it, as he still thinks that he can prove his worth and will have a key role to play at Valley Parade next season.

29-year-old Yeates admits himself that the season wasn’t good enough but he still feels next season can be an ‘exciting one’ for him.

He told the Telegraph & Argus: ‘I’m my biggest critic and know that I should have done better overall. But to only start ten league games is probably the least I`ve had anywhere in my career.

‘But I signed for Bradford City for two years and I don’t see why next season can’t be an exciting one.’

11 starts for a player billed as a marquee type signing last summer was a poor return, but starting the final two games of the season will be something that he hopes is a sign of things going forward.

A ‘nagging knee problem’ didn’t help his chances, nor did the impacts made by some loanees but personally he says he is well settled in the area and couldn’t have asked for more.

Do you think that Yeates make the impact that the former Watford midfielder believes he can next season?
