Bantams boss Phil Parkinson is under no illusions as to how important this Saturday's trip to Yeovil Town is to his City squad.

Following quickly on the heels of Wednesday's tremendous F.A Cup victory over Millwall at the Coral Windows Stadium, Parkinson's men return to league matters with a long journey south to face Yeovil at Huish Park this weekend.

With the Millwall victory having earned City a mouth-watering match with Premier League leaders Chelsea in the fourth round a week on Saturday, the attentions of a lot of City supporters may perhaps be tempted at this present to wander towards thoughts of the club's exciting trip to Stamford Bridge.

As understandable as that might be though, that certainly won't be the case for Parkinson, however, in the build up to this weekend.

The City chief, as always, will remained focused on the club's next game - Yeovil away - and his plans for the match began even before the full time whistle of the Millwall cup replay.

Parkinson said: "With us being three goals up, four goals up in the second period (of the Millwall game), we were able to take off a few key players and rest them up a bit.

"We also got the message out to the full backs to sit behind the ball in the final stages and conserve energy. We know Saturday at Yeovil is a massive game for us.

"Our aim now has to be to go to Chelsea with another league win under our belts.

"We are delighted with securing the Chelsea tie but this Saturday is a huge game for us in the league."
