City boss Mark Hughes has called on his side to "play to their strengths" - ahead of tomorrow's 3.00pm visit of Walsall. 
The Bantams will be looking to register their third win of the Sky Bet League Two season as they reach the conclusion of four-successive home games at the University of Bradford Stadium.

Hughes hopes Walsall's approach will fit in with City's gameplan, and is looking for his players to take the game to their opponents.
He said: “Walsall are a good side, a strong side, and we will have to be at our best.

“If we play to our strengths in terms of affecting the opposition, I think it will be difficult for them to play against.

“They have a very accomplished manager at this level in Michael Flynn who wants to make an impression at his new club.

“It will be interesting to see what approach they adopt, as other teams have surprised and disappointed us in that regard.”
The Welshman made two late additions to his squad on transfer Deadline Day, with Dion Pereira returning to City for his second loan spell and Tyreik Wright arriving on loan from Aston Villa.

Hughes was pleased to have added extra strength in depth to his squad, and is looking forward to seeing his new players in action.
He added: “I am aware we need different threats, and the two new players will help us do that.

“It is important that the loan deals you complete have an impact on what you do. These players have been added to embellish the group, and we are confident they will do that.

“We are not just bringing players in to make up the numbers. We are comfortable with where we are and with the business we have completed.

“It is always about making sure we are stronger at the end of the window then we were at the start, which we fundamentally are. I am happy with the people we have brought in.”
