The Bantams, who saw off Wigan, Arsenal and Aston Villa in a magical cup run earlier this season, face Burton in a two-legged semi-final tie, with the first leg at Valley Parade on Thursday.

Their home was a fortress during that run to Wembley and Parkinson is hoping for more of the same in the end-of-season showpiece.

"We have a group of players who have played this season in front of full houses and when the cameras have been there, and relished it all," he said. "I fully expect us to do the same again.

"As I said throughout our cup run, the whole experience of playing in the big games and dealing with the big occasions will help our younger players in their careers.

"We now have another opportunity to play in a game of a similar magnitude to our cup matches."
