With City's amazing spell in the FA Cup finally over for another season following Monday's quarter-final replay loss at Reading, Parkinson's men can now focus all their energy on trying to stay in the hunt for a top six berth come the end of the season.
The Bantams' first fixture in their eleven-game run to the flag sees them entertain Fleetwood Town at the Coral Windows Stadium this Saturday.
Parkinson said: "The lads have done terrifically well to keep us within touching distance of the Play-Offs while we've had all these extra high-profile games this season.
"We now have eleven games left - almost an eleven-game season if you like - and we are in a mini-league with a number of other clubs trying to get into that top six.
"We have to try and get as many points as possible from those eleven games to give ourselves the best chance of achieving our aim.
"The lads had a couple of days off after the Reading game and they are back now refreshed and ready to go again.
"After our FA Cup run, we now have another exciting challenge ahead of us between now and the end of the season.
"We will be giving it everything we've got during this period."
