That Bradford are even preparing for a playoff final is an achievement in itself.
Last summer the Bantams were a club in transition - new German owners, Edin Rahic and Steffan Rupp, no manager after Phil Parkinson left to join Bolton and only eight full time players.
One of those eight players was Tony McMahon.
That togetherness has been fostered by a Bantams legend. Stuart McCall made close to 400 appearances as a Bradford player and last June was invited back for a second spell as manager.
For striker Charlie Wyke, who became Bradford's most expensive signing for 17 years when the Bantams paid Carlisle £250,000 for him in January, tomorrow's final is the culmination of a breakthrough season.
The last obstacle in Bradford need to hurdle is a Millwall side they've drawn with twice this season. No chance of that tomorrow according to McCall.
