Next Bradford City manager odds – Grayson backed into 1/4

Bradford City looking for a new manager after sacking Stuart McCall following a poor run of results

UPDATE 09.02.18
Simon Grayson is now a 1/4 shot to replace Stuart McCall at Bradford, with the former Leeds and Preston manager thought to be interested in the vacant position as the board look to hire someone who can lead the Bantams into the Championship.

Hannes Wolf is now out to 4/1, with Greg Abbott chalked up at 8/1 although City fans will now be expecting to hear Grayson announced.

UPDATE 07.02.18
Hannes Wolf has emerged as the new favourite to take charge at Bradford City, with the German coach now 2/1 to replace Stuart McCall.

The 36-year-old was most previously coach at VFB Stuttgart, with the Bundesliga club recently sacking him and he was linked with the Leeds job.

Greg Abbott is a 3/1 poke, while Simon Grayson is a 6/1 chance and we might also see Uwe Rosler enter the picture. The Fleetwood manager is a 7/1 poke.

Bradford narrowly missed out on promotion to the Championship last season and their promotion charge this time around is in danger of petering out.

This is why the Yorkshire club have parted company with Stuart McCall, with the Bantams having lost eight times at Valley Parade this season despite the fact that they sit sixth in the table.

It has been six straight defeats for a team who would have targeted automatic promotion at the beginning of the campaign, although they sit thirteen points behind second-placed Shrewsbury.

Simon Grayson currently heads the betting to take charge at Valley Parade, with the former Leeds and Sunderland manager currently out of work and he previously did well with Preston last season.

Phil Brown might express an interest in the vacant role after recently leaving Southend United, while there are likely to be several other applications including Mark Warburton who was in charge at Nottingham Forest until a few weeks ago.

The aim will be to steer Bradford to a top six finish and hopefully land promotion to the Championship come the end of the season, with City losing the play-off final against Millwall last season after a tight game.

There won’t be a shortage of applications for this attractive role, with McCall seemingly unable to arrest a poor run of results which has really derailed the promotion campaign.

Iain Dowie, Nigel Pearson and Danny Cowley are other names that have been thrown into the mix, with the board now considering their options.

All odds were correct at time of posting.
