In March 1999 city were pushing for promotion to the Carling Premier League with a successful strike partnership of Lee Mills and Robbie Blake. With the season coming to a close Paul Jewell decided that the team could do with a further striker to keep the front two on their toes, that man was Deano who at the time was the top scorer at relegation threatened Oxford United with 18 goals. Unfortunately Windass didn’t make an immediate impact scoring only three goals, although one of them was in the fiery derby game against Huddersfield Town. The next two seasons in the top division were difficult with goals very rare, and Deano was city’s top marksman in the 99/00 season with only ten goals. The next season was even worse for city who remained in the relegation zone almost from the start of the season, however Deano still managed to get 5 goals before a midseason move to Terry Venables Middlesbrough. Deano infuriated City fans with comments made to the press following his move and over the top goal celebrations in games against the Bantams (in my opinion the goal celebrations are all part on Dean’s character so I don’t feel it was against City.)

In July 2003 Nicky law brought Deano back to the club on a free from Sheffield United, many fans were cautious about the signing particularly after the comments he made after he left. The 2003/2004 season again brought a relegation battle in which Windass was again the leading goal scorer with six goals, unfortunately the Bantams did go down giving Deano his first taste of relegation at the ripe old age of 34. At the start of the 04/05 season Deano had city career stats of 27 goals in 126 games and many fans hoped after the difficult summer which meant we couldn’t afford many new players, deano would vastly improve those stats. Throughout last season Windass formed strong partnerships with Adebola and Andy Cooke which helped him to 28 goals and the golden boot.

At the start of the 2005/2006 season Deano scored seven goals in five games, form which triggered a £450,000 bid from Premiership club Wigan Athletic.
