Bradford striker James Hanson has a significant role to play for the club this season, according to manager Phil Parkinson.
Hanson used all of his 6ft 4in frame to head home his fifth goal of the season on Saturday and marked his return to the starting line-up for the first time in four matches following a calf injury with the Bantams' winner against Northampton.
Parkinson told the club's official website: "We felt the previous weekend at Hereford that he would have scored because we put some great crosses in the box that day, but no-one quite got on the end of them.
"The game is won or lost in both boxes and when the ball goes in the opponent's box he has the bravery to put himself on the line and get us a goal."
Hanson, 23, scored 13 goals in his first campaign at Bradford after joining from Guiseley in July 2009 and fired in nine last season.
"The second goal [against Northampton] came from a great ball from Kyel Reid and James does what he does best, which is getting in that six-yard box."
