Last season Bradford City sank to their lowest league position for about 55 years. After a good start, where it looked as though the play-offs were a possibility, they ended up in 15th place. Despite this relatively lowly position, the Bantams managed to convince their manager, Derek Adams, to leave newly-promoted Morecambe to drop back into League Two management. But a run of 9 wins in 37 games cost Adams his job in February. His replacement, Mark Hughes, was announced just recently.
This season, Bradford’s performance has been looking below average. Their recent form is well below average (5 defeats in the last 5 games). Goals scored (38) and goals conceded (45) are both below average for the division. They are below the middle of the division in 15th place (with 40 points from 35 games).
But Bradford are way above average when it comes to their fanbase. With attendances at Valley Parade usually topping 15,000, Bradford are the best supported club in League 2 by some distance. Expect a few from Yorkshire to be visiting Gloucestershire.
