According to a report from Bristol Live, Leeds United, Bradford City and Luton Town all had staff in attendance of Sunday’s game between Coventry City and Bristol Rovers.
Sunday afternoon’s League One clash between Coventry City and Bristol Rovers was attended by representatives from Championship promotion hunters Leeds United and League One pair Bradford City and Luton Town, Bristol Live has reported.
The report writes that a member of Leeds United’s backroom staff watched on, while Luton Town caretaker manager Mick Harford – who is also the club’s head of recruitment – was also there. Bradford City boss Gary Bowyer also attended as the Gas and the Sky Blues played out a 0-0 draw.
It is unknown which players the clubs were scouting, but Gary Bowyer’s visit could have been to watch the entire team ahead of Bradford City’s visit to the Ricoh Arena on April 19th. On the contrary, Leeds will obviously not be playing either team so it must be assumed they were watching a player. The same goes for Luton, who do not have to play either Bristol Rovers or Coventry before the end of the season.
Clubs are starting to kick on with their recruitment plans ahead of the upcoming summer transfer window and one player the clubs could have been watching is Bristol Rovers’ in-form striker Jonson Clarke-Harris.
The striker has been in impressive form for the club since his arrival in January and it has been reported that he is catching the attention of a number of sides.
