Reid has missed the last nine weeks with a long-term groin problem, which has ruled him out of the Bantams last 14 games.

That period coincided with a 16-game goalless run for Hanson, but having broken his goal-scoring duck in the 3-3 draw at Bristol Rovers on Saturday, the 25-year-old front man says he can't wait for Reid's return.

He told the Bradford Telegraph & Argus: "It will be a big help when Reidy's back because you know exactly what sort of winger he is. I hope Thommo (Garry Thompson) will do the same on the other side.

"You want that sort of supply and hopefully now the first one has gone in, I can go on a little run. I'd like to get to 10 by the end of the year.

"I've had some good chances in the past couple of games. But I kept going and finally got my reward."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
