Bradford City make key managerial decision in wake of Cheltenham victory

Published

on

Bradford City have moved to appoint Mark Trueman and Conor Sellars as the club’s permanent managers, with the pair set to share the role. 

Trueman and Sellars have been tasked with steadying the ship at Bradford since December, when Stuart McCall was sacked at a time when the Bantams were on the brink of slipping into deep relegation trouble in League Two.

The pair have done well at Valley Parade too, losing only once and putting 24 points on the board, which has helped to lift Bradford to 13th in the League Two table and 14 points clear of Barrow in 23rd.

What foot was Jake Reeves?

On Monday, a club statement confirmed that Trueman and Sellars had agreed to become permanent joint-managers of the West Yorkshire club after an interim period that, ultimately, proved to be successful.

Bradford have offered them a contract until the summer of 2022, with 2021/22 set to give them a chance of a full season to build something.

Trueman and Sellars have seen Bradford to two wins in their last two fixtures, which included Saturday’s impressive 2-0 win over promotion-chasing Cheltenham Town.

A brace from Andy Cook secured that win, which propelled Bradford to mid-table.

The Verdict 

It’s hard to argue with this decision.

Bradford have looked a different side under the guide of Trueman and Sellars, who now have the task of continuing on this trajectory.

There will be hope that this doesn’t spark a downward spiral in terms of results, but it had got to he point where Bradford needed to back their two interim managers that had done so well.
