THREE TO WATCH: BRADFORD CITY

10 February 2017

Take a look at the potential threats in the ranks of Saturday's visitors to the Mem, Bradford City.

#14 - Josh Cullen - Midfielder

The twenty-year-old midfielder is on loan at Bradford from Premier League side West Ham United and is currently enjoying his second spell on loan at the Bantams.

After progressing through the youth setup at West Ham the midfielder made his debut for the Hammers in a Europa League qualifying tie against Lusitanos in July 2015 and the youngster progressed to make his Premier League debut for the Hammers in their 3-0 victory over Liverpool in August last year, coming on as a late substitute. 

The youngster joined Bradford for the first time in February 2016 and made fifteen appearances in the second half of the 2015/16 campaign. 

Cullen rejoined Bradford on loan in August ahead of the start of the season and has so far made thirty appearances this campaign, contributing a goal in Bradford's victory over MK Dons at the start of the season, with Bradford extending his loan in January. 

The youngster made the SkyBet League One team of the week for his performance against Oldham Athletic on January 28th and was named Bradford's social media Player of the Month for the calander month January.

#11 - Jordy Hiwula - Striker

The twenty-two-year-old striker began his career at Manchester City and first gained exposure to first-team football with a loan spell at Yeovil Town in October 2014, where the forward found the net on just one occasion during his nine appearances.

A successful loan spell at Walsall followed for the youngster, where he found the net nine times in just under twenty appearances.

In July 2015 Hiwula made a permanent move away from Manchester City, joining Championship side Huddersfield Town. After making his Huddersfield debut in the opening game of the 2015/16 season, the striker joined Wigan Athletic on a season-long loan deal.

After scoring twice for Wigan during the opening half of the season, the striker was recalled by Huddersfield and later re-joined Walsall on loan, where he grabbed three goals between March and the end of the season.

Ahead of the 2016/17 campaign the forward joined Bradford City on loan and has been a regular feature for the Bantams. So far this season the striker has ten goals in thirty-five appearances.

Hiwula has been on the scoresheet on four occasions since the start of 2017, scoring in Bradford's back to back victories over Northampton and Chesterfield at the start of January. 

#9 - Charlie Wyke - Striker

The twenty-four-year-old is a new addition to the ranks at Bradford, following his move in the closing hours of the January transfer window from Carlisle United. 

Born in Middlesborough, Wyke progressed through the youth setup at Middlesborough, signing a professional contract at the Riverside in May 2011.

Various loan spells allowed the striker to gain first-team experience, with the striker taking in spells at Kettering, Hartlepool and AFC Wimbledon.

The striker joined Carlisle on a free transfer in January 2015 and registered the impressive goal return of 32 league goals in 77 league games for the club, ahead of his move to Bradford in January.

The striker found the net on his debut for Bradford last Saturday against Gillingham, taking his tally across the 2016/17 season to nineteen goals.
