City have to go for it on Saturday against Blackpool - and that means a likely recall for Jack Payne.

The Bantams playmaker has featured little under Gary Bowyer but, having overcome an illness, T&A chief sports writer Simon Parker expects him to take centre stage this weekend.

Amid all the late drama of Oxford's controversial winner last time out, City failed to impress going forward and the reintroduction of a fresh Payne could be just the catalyst at Valley Parade.

His potential return is a chief topic in this week's Parker on Parade, in which we also assess the impact of Jermaine Anderson and how important inside information could be as Bowyer goes up against his old club.
