The 2013/2014 campaign may now be over Phil Parkinson's squad but it is certainly a season most at the club will view back on as a progressive one for the men in claret and amber.

A top half finish in the club's first season back in League 1 since 2007 is no mean feat, especially when you consider the calibre and size of some of the other sides also in the division this year.

It was a season of high points and low points for Parkinson's men but three wins out of the club's final four fixtures of the season will definitely have left many Bradford followers full of optimism going into the summer break.

As the dust settles on another season, let's look back at some of the more interesting numbers, facts and figures to come out of the previous nine months or so.

19,498 - The highest crowd figure City played in front of during the season (at Wolverhampton Wanderers' Molineux Stadium).

18,218 - The attendance at the Coral Windows Stadium for City's Boxing Day clash with Rotherham United - the club's highest home attendance of the season. Only Wolves, Sheffield United and Milton Keynes Dons had higher attendances all season.

14,120 - The average attendance for the Coral Windows Stadium this season. Only Wolves and Sheffield United had better average attendance figures in the league.

3,932 - City's highest away following of the season (vs Huddersfield Town).

3,130 - The club's highest away attendance in the league (vs Sheffield United).

35 - Home goals scored by City during the season. More than Sheffield United, Milton Keynes Dons and Peterborough United.

33 - The total number of players used by Bradford during the season.

17 - The number of draws collected by City during the league season. The second highest tally of draws in League 1 behind Bristol City - a side the Bantams twice drew with during the 2013/2014 campaign.

16 - The number of different scorers for City this season.

15 - The number of league defeats in the season for City. Four of the ten teams who finished above the Bantams in the final league table of the season registered more losses.

14 - The number of clean sheets kept in the league by City. The joint-seventh best record in League 1. Only Wolves, Peterborough United, Brentford, Preston North End, Sheffield United and Rotherham United achieved more.

 13- The number of times City brought more than 1,000 supporters with them to an away game.

- The amount of points City collected from their twelve games with the end-of-season top six.13

12 - The number of goals scored by City in the final ten minutes of their games this season. Nine of those late goals helped City pick up another 14 points from their 46 league games. 

9 - The number of away league defeats. Only six of the other top half finishers in League 1 had fewer away defeats during the season, and five of those were the actual top five teams in the league.

8 - City's eleventh placed finish in the League 1 table was their highest placing up the football pyramid in eight years.

7 - The number of trophies collected by Stephen Darby during the club's end-of-season awards evening.

3 - Or +3 to be precise. City's positive goal difference come the end of the season. Phil Parkinson's men never dipped into a minus goal difference throughout the season.
