Bantams boss Parkinson: The tables have turned

Phil Parkinson is hoping that Halifax Town don't 'do a Bradford City' as his Bantams take on the Shaymen this afternoon.

Being the underdog has brought the best out of Bradford in recent seasons, with Parkinson famously guiding the Bantams to a famous League Cup final appearance back in 2013 as well as a victory over fellow West Yorkshire rivals Leeds earlier this year.

And Parkinson hopes that his side's cup experience will give his side the edge at the Shay today.
