The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

KYEL Reid in­sists Brad­ford City are a stronger team the sec­ond time round af­ter re­turn­ing to Val­ley Pa­rade on a month’s loan from Pre­ston.

Reid, who left the Ban­tams in June 2014 to move to Deep­dale, helped City to con­sec­u­tive wins on his first three out­ings this month.

The winger ad­mits he is not sur­prised by the team’s re­cent re­sults, and he is elated to be play­ing his part in the club’s cur­rent re­vival.

“The gaffer’s (Phil Parkin­son) got an amaz­ing squad here and abil­ity-wise prob­a­bly bet­ter than the one we had when I was here last time,” said the 27-year-old.

“We had that spirit to al­ways work hard for each other be­fore but now he’s just added that ex­tra qual­ity.

“He’s brought in some good play­ers and you can see the dif­fer­ence. There is the po­ten­tial to kick on and hope­fully be suc­cess­ful.”

Since his re­turn to West York­shire, Reid has re­ceived a warm wel­come back.

“The fans here mean a lot to me,” he said. “They’ve played a great part in my ca­reer and have al­ways shown me sup­port. Hope­fully I’m the lucky spark and we can keep win­ning.”
