Bradford City have endured an underwhelming season in League One as the club currently sits bottom of the league.The basement side has endured a torrid few weeks and the game against Blackpool was seen as a turning point for the team.

However, the team put in a dismal performance as they lost 4-1 at home to the Playoff chasing side and the players were subsequently booed by their fans after the final whistle. Bradford City manager Gary Bowyer is not giving up hope in his team making an escape from the drop.

The former Blackpool believes that the team can still pull through this season. according to Bowyer the current situation at the club is similar to the situation he inherited at the club. Bowyer took over Blackpool when they were relegated to the League Two in 2016 but was able to secure promotion the following season.

The 47-year-old tactician insists that he needs more time to be able to mould the team into a quality outfit. It was evident that Blackpool players were fitter than Bradford players in the weekend and it remains to be seen how Bowyer would be able to tackle this latest crisis at the club.

“The players appear to lack confidence in their abilities and it looks like they are beginning to accept that they are likely to drop to the basement league at the end of the season. Bowyer has a good reputation for building good teams and “it would be unwise for the club to press the panic button at this crucial point.

Bradford next fixture is a tough trip to fifth-placed Charlton Athletic on Saturday and Bowyer would have to pull off a tactical masterstroke to get anything from the game.
