Goalkeeper Joe Cracknell has extended his contract at Bradford City until the end of the season, it has been confirmed. 

The 21 year old, an ex-Hull City academy player, signed for The Bantams as a free agent in the summer.

He is yet to make a first team appearance for The Bantams, who are chasing down a play off place in League One.

The Bantams did stress that they would like to give Cracknell first team football soon, saying: “We’d still like to give Joe the opportunity to play some first team football somewhere at some point but he’s with us at the moment and he’s ready if needed.”

Cracknell is unlikely to play for City due to the form of Ben Williams and is needed as back up after Brad Jones left the club by mutual consent earlier this season.

Bradford have been on good form of late and despite a 3-1 defeat against Sheffield United on Monday, they lie 10th in League One, only three points off the play off places.

The Bantams also have games in hand over most clubs in the division, after having recent home games against Southend United and Burton Albion postponed.
