Bradford City winger Mark Marshall has been voted by you as the 25th best player in the EFL.
Over the last month, we have been gathering votes from you to find the best managers and players in the EFL. And after counting the votes, we have discovered you think that Marshall is the 25th best player in the Football League.
As we mentioned in another one of these articles, when Stuart McCall became the head coach of Bradford he was forced to rebuild the squad to have them once again challenging for promotion. Because their budget wasn’t infinite though, McCall was forced to take a few chances when signing players. One of those chances was Marshall and that one really paid off for the Bantams.
Just a year on from being thrown on the scrapheap by Coventry City, Marshall had rebuilt his reputation at Port Vale before leaving because their contract offer was poor. He soon landed at Bradford and became the spearhead as they pushed towards the top of Sky Bet League One. His pace troubled pretty much every full-back in the league and the fact he could cross and shoot equally as well with each foot was a nightmare for any defender tasked with controlling him. Quite simply, no player wanted to play against him.
Marshall’s season isn’t over yet though as they have one more game to go. Bradford will play this weekend in the play-off final against Millwall, the team that ditched them out of the end of season lottery last season.
