Bradford boss Peter Taylor has revealed the English championship club are not forced to play any of their loan signings.
The Bantams boss has frequently dipped into the temporary loan market to cover injuries.
Taylor has already borrowed seven players from other teams in the first 18 league games but insists that his hand is not forced when it comes to team selection.
He told the Telegraph & Argus: "I can promise you that is not the case. What I try to do is play them in the first couple of games and take a look at them from there.
"If you've got to have loan players in, then there's got to be an outstanding reason not to use them.
"If your own players are better than those you`ve got in on loan, fair enough. But having brought someone in, it's only fair to give them a chance."
