Manager Paul Jewell called his Bradford City players in for training on their day off yesterday in readiness for Sunday's game with Queens Park Rangers.

It was his reaction to Monday's 2-0 defeat at Bury - a performance he described as "scandalous".

He said: "The players' pride should have been hurt.

"We brought them in and worked them hard and made it clear what we expected of them.

" I hope I got my message across. But the Bury game has gone now, we can't change the result and all out efforts are directed towards QPR on Sunday."

Chairman Geoffrey Richmond is urging season ticket holders to take advantage of the club's 'bring a friend' scheme. They can bring any number of 'friends' at a reduced cost of £5 for adults and £1 for children. The club will arrange for them all to sit together.
