Bradford manager Peter Jackson is keen for Chib Chilaka to play some role for his side during the run-in after recalling the big striker from his loan spell at Harrogate Town.

Nigerian Chilaka, 24, signed by previous manager Peter Taylor from Notts County last summer, has spent the last two months on loan and scored a hat-trick in his final game on Saturday.

Jackson said: "He has done very well at Harrogate recently and I was pleased to see him get a hat-trick on Saturday, but I want to take a closer look at him myself."


He added: "He, like a number of the players in the dressing room, is out of contract at the end of the season and I want to give him a chance to earn a longer stay here.

"He is also different to the other strikers that we have at the club.

"He's a big, powerful lad and could give us another option at some point between now and the end of the season."
