Last season was a positive campaign with West Ham United loanee defender Reece Burke picking up the award after an impressively consistent campaign. City have their eyes on promotion from League One as they did last season and it has been another positive campaign under the stewardship of Stuart McCall following his return to the club last summer. As usual, the question is, who has topped the pile?

Colin Doyle arrived at the club from Blackpool last summer and he has performed consistently. Like Ben Williams last season, the Irish stopper has kept a good number of clean sheets and made some important saves at important moments. His form has even resulted in a couple of call-ups into the Republic of Ireland national team.

James Meredith continues to get better and better each season and he has been impressive down City's left hand-side, playing an almost dual defender/midfield role given Nicky Law's license to drift in-field from the left midfield position. Nicky himself has had an eye-catching first campaign back at the club following his arrival last summer from Rangers. A talented, ball-playing midfielder, he has fit in comfortably into Stuart McCall's implemented passing style of play this season.

On the opposite side of the defence to Meredith, Tony McMahon has been a regular as a right-back with a license to get forward and he has also chipped in with 4 goals so far this season. Popular with the supporters, Tony continues to edge closer to 100 Bradford City appearances and he could be a contender for the accolade this season.

Jordy Hiwula is City's leading marksman with 12 goals since his arrival on loan from Huddersfield Town last summer and Charlie Wyke has managed 7 goals for the club since his much talked about move from Carlisle United on the January transfer deadline day. It's been an impressive season for the pair of them, perhaps they could come into contention for the award.

Romain Vincelot took the captain's armband from Stephen Darby earlier in the season and he has been brilliant both in central defence and central midfield and the bearded Frenchman has started every single league game this season. A real fans' favourite and an all-action player, he's been a joy to watch this season and will surely be ranked highly on the list of votes.

His partner for much of the season in central defence, Nathaniel Knight-Percival was outstanding during the first half of the campaign and with a real calming ability in such a key area of the pitch, he has been an important player for the Bantams this season.

Mark Marshall didn't feature as prominently as he would've liked last season, but he has been a star in the team this season. Well into double figures for assists and with some stunning goals to his name, he has often lit up the stage with some brilliant performances on either side of midfield or behind the striker in a number ten role.

Many fans won't have expected Josh Cullen to return on loan from West Ham United back in August but after an impressive few months on loan at the club last season, he is a fans' favourite here in West Yorkshire. A player with an almost certain bright future in the game, the Republic of Ireland Under-21 international has barely put a foot wrong all season. No doubt a contender for the award.

It is once again a really difficult one to call this year with a number of contenders, but it's down to you to choose the Player of the Year!

Voting closes on Saturday 22nd April, so act fast.
