A FAMILIAR face will return to Valley Parade this Saturday, but City hope to spoil his party.

Michael Flynn, who played 91 times for Bantams between 2009 and 2012, brings his Newport County side to Bradford on Saturday.

Seventh-placed City are four points and four places above the Exiles in the League Two table. It will also be City's first home league game since they grabbed a 2-0 victory over Exeter City on November 2. 

On this week’s Parker on Parade, we discuss City's first clash against Newport since 1985 and the Bantams' 1-1 draw at Macclesfield Town last weekend.

T&A chief sports writer Simon Parker offers his views on the Bantams’ current run of form to T&A sports reporter Mark Stanford. 

Simon also gives us his prediction ahead of the home clash with the South Wales side, as City look to gain momentum ahead of a busy festive period. Following Saturday’s clash, City have four games during the rest of December.
