London is calling for Huddersfield Town striker Jon Stead – and the loaned-out striker will be aiming to maintain his record of scoring in each round of the FA Cup this season.
The 31-year-old is set to feature for Bradford City in their third-round tie at Millwall on Saturday.
It’s the final appearance of a second Valley Parade stint which could yet be extended during the January transfer window.
Stead, who scored as Town beat Chesterfield 5-3 in the League Cup earlier this season, has made 13 appearances for Bradford this time.
The former Bristol City man has notched four goals, including strikes in the Bantams’ first-round victory at FC Halifax Town and second-round success at home to Dartford.
Bradford are aiming to build on a bright festive spell which brought League I wins over Fleetwood Town and Notts County.
With Stead’s help, Phil Parkinson’s fifth-placed side have bolstered their promotion bid by taking 17 points from the last 21 available.
Midfielder Gary Liddle said: “We’ll keep chipping away at the teams above us. The longer we can keep this run intact, the more points we’ll pick up.
“It wasn’t that long ago when we went a couple of months only winning two games in 13. The way the squad and staff have turned it round is great.
“It’s about getting consistency. I’ve played in this league a number of years and if you get that run going like we have been then confidence just builds.”
Leeds United are preparing for their tie at Sunderland on Sunday with question marks against injured defenders Stephen Warnock and Jason Pearce.
The showdown represents a repeat of the 1973 final which Sunderland famously won 1-0.
