Good illness doubt

1 February 2013

City defender Curtis Good missed training this Friday due to illness to leave him a doubt for the Bantams' return to league action at Fleetwood Town this weekend.

Along with fellow loanee Blair Turgott, Good's current loan deal expires after the Fleetwood Town match - City's first League 2 game in three weeks following previous back-to-back postponements.

Having already done so once before this season though, City are extremely hopeful of further extending both Turgott and Good's deals past the Fleetwood game.

Saturday's journey to Fleetwood comes shortly after the club's trip to Tenerife at the beginning of the week for some warm weather training.

Recharged after the brief stay abroad, Bantams boss Phil Parkinson believes his players are now really relishing a chance to get back to league matters.

Parkinson said: "We haven't had a league game for a while, and we're looking forward to getting out there."

"We go into the game off the back of some good training (over in Tenerife) - we were pleased with the benefits of going away for a few days.

"It will be a difficult game - I went to see Fleetwood beat Oxford United last weekend and they looked a good side. 

"We know we are going to have to play well to pick up a good result, but I believe we are capable of doing it."
