Bradford loan signing Simon Whaley can play a major role in the club's climb up the table, according Bantams skipper Zesh Rehman.

Whaley, who arrived on an emergency loan deal last week from Norwich until January 2, has proved an instant hit and scored in his first start for Stuart McCall's side in the midweek win at Grimsby.

"Simon has come from a big club, but just needs that stage to play and show what he can do," Rehman told the club's official website. "Hopefully we can give him that here and he certainly adds to the competition for places."

The 3-0 win at Grimsby lifted Bradford to within two points of a play-off spot and Rehman added: "We're not getting carried away after one result, but it's good to get that winning feeling back.

"We'll get there and hopefully by Christmas time we'll be right in the mix because we need to kick on."
