Bantams' key men James Hanson and Gary Jones set to miss Colchester clash

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Phil Parkinson’s plans have been hit by the loss of Gary Jones (pictured playing against Brentford at the weekend) and James Hanson Phil Parkinson’s plans have been hit by the loss of Gary Jones (pictured playing against Brentford at the weekend) and James Hanson

City have been challenged to show they can win without Gary Jones and James Hanson tonight.

The ever-present skipper is set to miss the Colchester clash with a virus and Hanson is still struggling with the groin strain which forced him out of the Brentford defeat.

But Andrew Davies, another absentee at Griffin Park, trained fine yesterday and should be fit.

Matty Dolan is pushing to replace Jones after being left out of the weekend squad because City had the maximum five loans.

Parkinson said: “Gary had the virus last week but came in Thursday and said he felt great. I just think the heat from the weekend and the demanding game it was has set him back a bit.

“He’s been immense this season and it’s typical of Gaz that he kept going on Saturday. Maybe he should have said at half-time that he was feeling poorly.

“But we’ve got players chomping at the bit. If you go back to this stage last year, we changed the squad round all the time and we’re going to have to do that again.”

Hanson travelled with the team yesterday and will be assessed late on. Andy Gray could be called in if he doesn’t make it.

Colchester sit two points behind City and with Peter Taylor’s Gillingham due at Valley Parade next, Parkinson’s men need positive results to prevent them being sucked in to the relegation scrap.

Parkinson added: “This is a big week for us. It’s important that we’ve put in two really strong performances by Saturday evening.

“I know it sounds very simplistic but, as we said before the Port Vale game recently, let’s make sure the 11 go out there and play well for 90 minutes.

“I’m not saying we didn’t do that at Brentford but we had a few players out and came up against a very good team.

“You look back at that period against Port Vale and MK Dons and the second half against Crewe. We need to replicate that kind of performance on our travels.”

Colchester beat Coventry 2-1 on Saturday – their first win for seven games – but the pitch is expected to be very poor.

Parkinson cut his managerial teeth with the U’s and steered them into the second tier in 2006 before leaving for Hull. He is expecting a decent reception from the locals.

He said: “When I first left, the supporters weren’t very pleased that I’d gone when I did, after just getting promotion. But I had my reasons, which I still stand by.

“But over the time people have realised the job I did there and whenever I bump into any Colchester fans on my travels up and down the country, I always have a good chat with them.

“It was my first managerial job and a fantastic learning curve. It was a club with very little resources but everyone was great with me.

“My kids all went to school there, so my family have got an affinity with that area.

“I went down last Tuesday and saw some familiar faces. Layer Road had its own unique atmosphere and it’s a different type of club now but I’m looking forward to going back.”

Parkinson will also be looking for a first win at the Weston Homes Community Stadium – his previous visits as Charlton boss saw a 3-0 defeat and 3-3 draw with two sent off.

“We had a terrific start to the season and had won all six games,” he recalled. “We went to Colchester and passed them off the pitch for 25 minutes.

“But we didn’t score and ended up getting beaten. Then we went there again for an end-to-end game that could have gone either way.

“They are always entertaining and I think this game will be similar. Colchester are quite an open, expansive team and I think there will be chances at both ends.”

It is time for the fringe players to stand up and be counted. They are not only playing for the Shirt, but playing for their contracts to remain at City.

Its ALL hands to the plough tonight. Those supporters that can attend, will do their best to encourage those that are representing Bradford City.

City will always have tough periods in any Season. Injuries always occur in every season. ALL footy clubs suffer a bad patch. What you and ALL City Supporters must do is encourage--shout out loud--play 'Different ' by Robbie Williams. Play 'Little Me ' by Little Mix. SING THOSE LYRICS OUT LOUD--over and over again!!!.

Lets be realistic. 4 points from 6 is an achievable target although our boogie team Gillingham will not be an easy game and Taylor will be coming back to prove a point so we must be ready for that.

Think Dolan will do ok and to be honest I think jones could do with a rest.

Macleans is the name of a brand of toothpaste. McLean is the surname of the footballer.

I realise that you are a very funny man but these inaccuracies make you look like a fool.

Best to judge each game after it has taken place...eight points needed from next four matches to be realistically safe. ..don't see us losing tonight.
.think 0-0 most likely. ..would go with Dolan and Atkinson to provide some legs in midfield and support the potential goal threat..McLean needs to have his best attacking display...chance to make amends for Stevenage.
.any sort of victory would do that...they are no better than we are so it will be close.

Yes. I recall it was January 1962. I'm sure Mitchell Downie had let in nine goals the week before at Colchester and retained his place against Arsenal in the FA Cup.

As a schoolboy, I went down by train which, I think, was organised by the T&A.

If you were to refer to a long-ball tactic than that is a comment that would fairly describe your opinion of the current style of play. Agreed?

However, I do not like the term 'hoofball' as it is intended purely to attack a manager who has achieved more for your club than anyone of the failures appointed since Paul Jewell.

If I am not mistaken, you have been supporting the club for over 40 years so you should (by now) realise that football in the lower divisions is not all that cracking at times.

Unfortunately, too much high end football exposure has led punters to beleive they are watching a quasi Premier League outfit for £199 a year and I think that fans are responsible for setting hopes too high .

Previously, you have slated John Hendrie repeatedly for what you term as a lack of loyalty to the cause. Yet, when the guy in charge needs a bit of a break you afford him nothing at all.

As for "deaf ears", I would like to know who has been sounded out. If, perhaps, you are suggesting that an unaffiliated T&A page counts as a credible discussion board, then I disagree.

No offence against the T&A, but if people were seriously unhappy, they would (I suppose) have made a more direct representation. I have not been to a supporters club meeting since I saw Chris Kamara getting a rough time in Skipton, but if such forums are still active, are people going along to voice concerns?

Finally, I too am frustrated. I am aware / alive as to the current circumstances that have led to the current 'direct' style and am sick of critics who think they know best but, in reality, are clueless. Probably the same people who get too carried away when things are going well.

Probably the same people who get too carried away when things are going well.
We all have our opinions '!!!! Anyone listen to the 1st half on the Pulse hear the three magic words all spoken about the city PASSING POSSESION CLOSING DOWN Music to my ears Just as important as the score line Wish toothpaste could have buried one of his chances tho
Yes we all have opinions and I wish that people would make some attempt to expand on them rather than making wise-cracks.And I am not aiming that remark at you.

Agreed? However, I do not like the term 'hoofball' as it is intended purely to attack a manager who has achieved more for your club than anyone of the failures appointed since Paul Jewell. If I am not mistaken, you have been supporting the club for over 40 years so you should (by now) realise that football in the lower divisions is not all that cracking at times. Unfortunately, too much high end football exposure has led punters to beleive they are watching a quasi Premier League outfit for £199 a year and I think that fans are responsible for setting hopes too high . Previously, you have slated John Hendrie repeatedly for what you term as a lack of loyalty to the cause. Yet, when the guy in charge needs a bit of a break you afford him nothing at all. As for "deaf ears", I would like to know who has been sounded out. If, perhaps, you are suggesting that an unaffiliated T&A page counts as a credible discussion board, then I disagree. No offence against the T&A, but if people were seriously unhappy, they would (I suppose) have made a more direct representation. I have not been to a supporters club meeting since I saw Chris Kamara getting a rough time in Skipton, but if such forums are still active, are people going along to voice concerns?
