Bradford City have already secured their place in the League One Play-Offs at the end of the season, but things could have been very different for the side from west Yorkshire.
Too many draws scuppered The Bantams bid for automatic promotion, and the club’s ability to see out games this season has cost them.
Bradford’s inability to carve out results may be attributed to their goal scoring record this season.
The former Premier League side have the second best defensive record in the division, but have scored the least goals out of the top eleven clubs in the league.
Struggling for goals has cost Bradford too often this season, and even a January move for Carlisle’s Charlie Wyke was not enough to improve their toils in front of goal.
Bradford may well win the play-offs this season, but as we all know, the lottery of the play-offs are about as unpredictable as Donald Trump’s latest scandal. You just can’t call it.
The Bantams need a consistent goal scorer, and one may be found in AFC Fylde’s Danny Rowe, who has scored a remarkable 45 goals in 46 Vanarama National League North fixtures this season.
At any level of football, this is an incredible return, and Football League clubs are sure to be looking at the recently promoted Fylde’s prized asset.
This deal makes sense for Bradford.
City need to start scoring more goals, and there is no doubt that the prolific Rowe will wish to test himself at a higher level, with one of the biggest clubs in League One.
Fylde will fight to keep hold of the former Manchester United trainee ahead of their first season in the Vanarama National League, but Bradford should do what it takes to secure this goal scoring machine.
