Parkinson made a double substitute shortly after half-time and the move paid dividends just seven minutes later as former West Ham winger Hines beat three players in a 40-yard run before smartly slotting the ball past goalkeeper Michael Ingham.

Hines was substituted in Bradford's 4-3 defeat at Dagenham last Saturday, and Parkinson said: "Zavon has reacted tremendously well. He has been working with the fitness coach during the week and I am so pleased he got a goal. It will give him a lift.

"Zavon has played in the Premier League and with England's Under-21s, but he has missed his way and I am going to help him to get back on track.

"He is a terrific lad with a big heart and that gives us something to work with. It was a great individual goal he scored. He has got pace and skill, which are big positives."

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
