‘A joke’, ‘Needs to wake up’ – These Bradford City fans have a clear message for 56-year-old

Bradford City missed out on a potential clash with Liverpool after being hammered by League One side Lincoln City last night.

The Imps took an early 2-0 lead, bagging twice in six minutes thanks to an own goal from Tyler French and Anthony Scully’s rebound finish. Dutch defender Lewis Montsma volleyed a third before James Jones curled in a lovely shot to end the tie before half time.

Bradford made two changes at half time as they looked to get back into the game, and whilst they saw more of the ball in the second period, they still conceded again, Callum Morton completed the scoring with a tap-in in injury time.

Bradford lined up 3-5-2, with Paudie and Anthony O’Connor keeping their places at the back, but Ben Richards-Everton coming in for Reece Staunton,. The latter had a torrid game and was pulled at half time, as was the hapless French.

After the rout, manager Stuart McCall admitted he was disappointed with the goals his team gave away.

“It was an uncomfortable night for us,” said the Scott, back for his third spell in charge of the club. “Lincoln are a good side, but to be two goals down after six minutes was not the start we were looking for.

“I am hugely disappointed to concede five goals, but I am also disappointed to concede when you look at the height we had in the team.

“We gave away two stupid free-kicks and didn’t defend them. The only way we can get this out our system is to give a good performance in the league at Forest Green on Saturday.”

Whilst 56-year-old McCall was disappointed with his players, it seems his legendary status with Bradford fans might be beginning to wane. they took to social media last night to express their dismay at what was a weak performance from the side.
