THE Telegraph and Argus' chief sports writer Simon Parker discusses how the closure of the transfer window could finally allow Bradford City to settle and build some momentum.

Despite a tough week or so, Simon suggests that 3-5-2 could still work for the Bantams, insisting that a settled central midfield partnership is needed if Gary Bowyer returns to 4-4-2.

Alongside returning sports reporter Nathan Atkinson, he discusses the importance of having young Aramide Oteh as back-up to strikers James Vaughan and Clayton Donaldson.

Finally, the pair discuss City's next opponents, Northampton Town at Valley Parade on Saturday, and how their start has echoed that of the Bantams.

Big things were expected of the two sides after a busy summer of signings, but both are languishing in mid-table with just a pair of wins apiece.
