Parkinson: Lack Of Expectation Will Help Us

Bradford City kick-off the new League One campaign against last year's Playoff finalists Swindon Town on Saturday.

Phil Parkinson believes that low expectations will help his new-look squad to bed in.

Wigan Chairman David Sharpe has already backed his team to 'smash' the division following the club's relegation last year and the Bantams Manager is more than happy to let other teams to do the talking.

Bradford added to the list of new faces at the club yesterday after they completed the signing of Man City full-back Greg Leigh.


Parkinson said: "We've got players like Anderson and Marshall who I think will be terrific signings for us, but we need to work on their match fitness before we're the finished article, although the early signs are good."

Bradford have already been buoyed by the sale of 18,000 season tickets, although they face a tough opening fixture at The County Ground.
