Parkinson has had Dartford watched in each of their last four games leading up to Sunday's tie, with the Bantams boss travelling down south twice himself to see the Darts live in person.
Despite this fact and the added bonus that the Bantams will have home advantage in the tie, the City chief certainly isn't taking anything for granted going into this weekend - far from it in fact.
With 59 places currently between League 1 City and their Kent-based opponents in the standings, Parkinson's men will go into Sunday's second round tie as red hot favourites to progress.
Bantams boss Phil Parkinson knows that City will have to be completely switched on and ready for the battle when they entertain Vanarama Conference side Dartford in the F.A Cup this Sunday.
"In the two matches I have seen Dartford play live, the scoreline certainly hasn’t reflected their level of performances – they have been a match for their opponents despite losing both games.
"We know that we cannot let our standards drop for a minute on Sunday otherwise we will be in for a shock.
"I was really pleased with so many aspects of the display against Orient.
"We have set some pretty high standards over the last few weeks and our aim is to keep them high throughout Sunday's tie."
