BRADFORD City fans say they are looking forward to a brighter future as the club looks set to announce its new manager.

Derek Adams is expected to be named as the new Bantams boss today, as the club moved quickly after he left Morecambe yesterday.

Since then City fans have been waiting patiently for a deal to be officially signed to bring a new manager to Valley Parade.

The Scotsman is set to take over from Mark Trueman and Connor Sellars who were sacked at the end of last season after guiding City to a mid-table finish in League Two.

Bantams fans have welcomed the imminent appointment of former Plymouth Argyle manager Adams, who steered Morecambe to the League Two play-off final victory on Monday.

Humayun Islam, Bangla Bantams chairman, says having fans back at Valley Parade will give the club an added boost as they look ahead to a new era.

He said: "I think Trueman and Sellars did a fantastic job last season.

"Going forward it is fantastic getting an experienced manager from Morecambe and its onwards and upwards for us.

"It can only be positive news and with fans coming back into Valley Parade next season too.

"It's going to be like a new club."

Councillor Richard Dunbar (Lab, Thornton and Allerton), who is a season ticket holder at City,

He said: "I think, having been at Plymouth and Morecambe, Derek Adams has a reputation for not being afraid to battle and grinding out a win. That can be really important in the lower leagues.

"He seems to be somebody who can galvanise a team to grind out a win.

"As a Bradford City fan, I want to see as win as many games as possible. We want to see a team who will fight to the very last whistle. I'd like to see us have some more creativity in our play as well.

"In Derek Adams, we are bringing the grassroots, gritty determination

"It's also a credit to (chief executive) Ryan Sparks and the City board for moving quickly to get a really good person in place so he's got time during the summer to stamp his own authority on things."

But Mike Harrison, editor of the Bantams fanzine City Gent, says he is 'indifferent' to the possible appointment of Adams.

He said: "It's the worst kept secret that Derek Adams is taking over at City.

"I'm a bit indifferent to it. He is a guy with a proven track record and I understand why the club is going for someone like Derek Adams.

"I can see why he wants to come to a club like Bradford City. There is no bigger challenge in League Two than Bradford City.

"My worry is the type of football we will play in League Two next season.

"We have had managers at Bradford City before with proven track records who have failed here, so we will have to wait and see. Only time will tell.

"It's never dull watching Bradford City."
