Gary Bowyer told the club website: “It is obviously very tough to take for everyone connected to the club.

“We started the game well, and had good chances early on, but Coventry scored from their first real attack.

“It was poor defending from us and we weren’t clinical enough in front of goal. Those instances pretty much sum up our season.

“We haven’t been good enough in either penalty box and we are where we are.

“It is not nice for the supporters, who are so proud of their club, but we have to conduct ourselves in a professional manner until the end of the season.

“After that we have a big task on our hands, which is already being prepared for.”

Despite this torrid season, the club have still sold over 13,000 season tickets for League Two and will help the club as they challenge for promotion next season.

Bradford City manager Gary Bowyer has proven that he can gain promotion from League Two with Blackpool and he gives Bradford City the hope they need.

Their current squad possesses players that could be vital in League Two, with the likes of Eoin Doyle, Sean Scannell and Kevin Mellor. If Bradford City keep hold of some of their current squad and add more players to the squad in the summer they will be in a great place for a promotion push.
