Bradford City have recently appointed Stuart McCall as their new manager, in what will be the 55-year-old’s third spell in charge of the Bantams.
The club parted company with Gary Bowyer after a poor run of form, which saw Bradford slip outside of the play-off places in the fourth tier.
The Bantams are without a win in their last seven games in all competitions, so many of the the club’s supporters will have been pleased to see the back of Bowyer.
Speaking in a pre-match press conference ahead of their game against Grimsby Town this weekend, McCall highlighted the importance of getting the Valley Parade faithful back on side at the earliest of opportunities.
“I cannot wait to be back out in front of them again. Results are what brings fans back but we have to keep the supporters interested. We want to win but want to win well. We need to please the supporters and play in a way which will earn results.”
Bradford are currently sat eighth in the League Two table, and could move back into the play-off positions if other results are to go their way over the weekend.
The Bantams will be targeting a swift return to League One, following their relegation from the third tier last season after a hugely disappointing league campaign.

His appointment is going to reunite the fan base at the ideal time.
Bradford City have struggled to put any sort of momentum together in League Two, and I think it was the right time for the club to part company with Gary Bowyer.
McCall knows the club well, and will be keen to get his ideas over to the squad as soon as possible, and will be hoping he can get off to the best start possible with a win over Grimsby Town this weekend.
I think he’s the perfect manager to take them back into League One this season.
