Bantams boss Phil Parkinson says City have every right to be enjoying their football at the moment after two impressive home performances last week.

Parkinson's men backed up their eye-catching display over league leaders Burton Albion in midweek by defeating Doncaster Rovers on Saturday to make it back-to-back successes at the Coral Windows Stadium.

The Doncaster victory propelled City in the top six in Sky Bet League 1 with ten games left to be played in the regular season.

The Bantams now have an away match at second-placed Wigan Athletic to look forward this coming weekend - City's first game at the Latics since their memorable Capital One Cup fourth round tie at the DW Stadium back in 2012.

Before that, several members of Parkinson's squad will feature in a reserve game this Tuesday at Valley Parade (kick off 2:00pm), coincidentally also against Wigan. 

Parkinson said: "The lads are in a good place at the moment, but they have earned to be in that place by sheer hard graft.

"That is what the last two performances have been all about.

"We have a good week now where we can recharge the batteries for the players who have played a lot of football recently. 

"We will make sure we progress the work-load for the lads throughout the week to ensure we are ready to reproduce again.

"For those (players) who need a match, we have a reserve game on Tuesday against Wigan Athletic where some of the lads will feature in."
