City boss Phil Parkinson says winger Kyel Reid is showing signs of progression on his road back to full fitness following a groin injury.
Parkinson and the Bantams have been without Reid since he torn part of his left groin muscle at Rochdale at the beginning of October.
Reid was initially told he would be sidelined for six weeks with the injury but that diagnosis was later extended to nearer ten weeks.
The 24 year-old has recently been taking positive steps on his road to recovery, however, by resuming straight line jogging last week for the first time since the injury.
Parkinson said: "Reidy is progressing well and working really hard on his rehabilitation programme. He is definitely getting closer.
"He is progressing all the time and we are looking forward to the sight of him getting nearer and nearer to a first team return."
Despite this positive recent development, Reid still isn't expected back in the frame until into December.
Head Physio Matt Barrass added: "The straight line jogging work is a key moment for him (Kyel). He is taking an important step forward, which is obviously great news, but he still has plenty of weeks hard work ahead of him."
