‘That’s a massive blow’ – Many Bradford City supporters react to club announcement



Bradford captain and goalkeeper Richard O’Donnell has been ruled out for up to three months, following a thigh problem, the club have confirmed.

O’Donnell has been an ever-present for the Valley Parade outfit this season until his injury forced him to miss last Tuesday’s goalless draw with Port Vale.

The 32-year-old shotstopper has made more than 100 appearances for the Bantams since joining from Northampton in the summer of 2018, but could now miss around 18 League Two matches, ruling him out for majority of the remainder of the campaign.

Number two Sam Hornby stepped up in O’Donnell’s absence against Vale, and is now likely to enjoy a long run of games in the coming months, unless Bradford opt to bolster their goalkeeping department in the January window.

Bradford’s clash with Morecambe on Saturday was postponed due to a number of positive COVID cases in the Lancashire side’s squad, although the Bantam’s are expected to return to action when they travel to Scunthorpe United on Saturday, without the presence of their injured skipper.

Here’s how the Valley Parade faithful have been reacted to the news of O’Donnell’s setback:
