Bradford City are in the midst of an awful season, one which seems to have come out of nowhere to the country’s onlookers.
But with 35 matches played they are slumped second bottom of the third-tier table, six points from safety with survival looking less and less likely with each week.
Last week saw them lose their second manager of the season as David Hopkin quit as the club’s manager, leaving a significant void to be filled.
And, after a 5-1 defeat to Portsmouth at the weekend, that is what they did, bringing in former Blackpool and Blackburn Rovers boss Gary Bowyer.
He has been out of work since resigning as Blackpool manager back in August just days before the season began just a year after guiding them to promotion from League Two.
So, how should the Bradford faithful feel about their latest appointment?
I do not think there is a better option that they could have got in the circumstances. Bowyer has a decent record at this level and looks to be a reliable replacement.
It would take a lot for fans to be buzzing about an appointment whilst in their current situation but they should be pleased to see this arrival.
Making up six points is a big ask, but Bradford have some top players and their fans should be confident that Bowyer will be able to get the best out of them.
