Oxford United v Bradford City: Bantams boosted by Adeyemi

Bradford City have received a real tonic ahead of tomorrow's League Two clash at Chris Wilder's Oxford United with the news that midfielder Tom Adeyemi has extended his loan deal at Valley Parade until the end of the season.

The 19-year-old , who has made 22 appearances for City and scored a couple of goals, had been set to return to parent club Norwich City this week.

However, Canaries boss Paul Lambert is clearly happy for the youngster, who signed a two year deal at Carrow Road last summer, to stay with the Bantams.

"He's been playing really well for Bradford in his initial six months and I recently spoke with Peter Taylor, who said he had done well," he said.

"I'm sure it will benefit both him and the club that he will now spend the rest of the season with Bradford."

City will be looking to bounce back from last weekend's disappointing 3-1 home defeat to relegation-threatened Barnet, a game they led in at the break.

"We are having a good strong week on the training pitch because there were some ridiculous things that happened," said boss Peter Taylor.

"It was an amazing day. The first half was nowhere near good enough but we went in 1-0 up.

"Then we had two tremendous chances to increase the lead and the momentum was with us. But all of a sudden, we let in two very poor goals and then another from a good counter-attack.

"We can't carry on making the type of ridiculous mistakes that we did.

David Bentley has vowed to "resurrect my career" after completing a loan switch to Birmingham from Tottenham for the remainder of the season.

The England winger cost 15million when he moved from Blackburn to White Hart Lane in the summer of 2008.

But a lack of first-team opportunities has led to the 26-year-old making the temporary switch to Blues.

Bentley said: "It has been a difficult time for me the last couple of years.

"I found it hard not being involved as much as I wanted at Tottenham. They have got some great players and you can find yourself the wrong side of the fence.

"But there was no fall-out with Harry Redknapp and it is time to put things aside, move on - and hopefully I can have a positive effect on Birmingham.

"The aim is to resurrect my career and I love football and just want to have the chance to be playing."
