McCall ponders future amid play-off chase

Published Add your comment

Emotional Bradford boss Stuart McCall admitted he might well walk away from the club at the end of the season after his side were beaten 3-0 at Dagenham.

McCall had stated prior to this match he would leave Valley Parade if his side did not make the play-offs. And goals from Sam Saunders, Paul Benson and Ben Strevens left the Bantams four points away from seventh with just two games remaining.

He said: "I'm going to sit down at the end of the season, I gave myself two years and have underachieved and failed."

He added: "Our wage budget is right up there with the top three definitely but I've let the club down. I'll speak to (joint chairmen) Mark (Lawn) and Julian (Rhodes) and see what goes from there."

McCall walked over to speak to the travelling Bradford fans at the end of the game and revealed what he said afterwards, he added: "I just apologised for how things have worked out this season and in this game.

"They have given us great support and when there's the tiniest glimpse of a chance of the play-offs, you've got to go for it."
