Much-travelled centre-half Branston was at the heart of Burton's defence as Paul Peschisolido's newly-promoted Brewers earned themselves an impressive point at Valley Parade on Saturday.
Branston said: "Bradford have an amazing side for this league. I can't see Stuart McCall not doing well because he's got a great young side mixed with good experience.
"I'm sure they will kick on this season because they are going to cause everyone problems.
"You've got experience in there as well as young lads who are willing to run all day and I was really impressed with the two young forwards.
"The lad Hanson is a big lump up front at 6ft 3in and he's going to win his headers. He makes it very difficult to defend against."
