KELVIN Mellor has seen Gary Bowyer rebuild one club in League Two – and is confident he can do the same with City.

As the Bantams head into the final away game of their doomed season at Scunthorpe, thoughts have already turned to what to expect in the summer.

For most fans, the action off the field over the coming months will be scrutinised more closely than what has happened on it as their team have been condemned to relegation.

With the drop looking increasingly inevitable in recent weeks, the focus now is on the massive overhaul of the squad that Bowyer is planning once the final ball has been kicked.

Most of the current players will be wondering about their position in the manager’s revamp.

But Mellor is safe in the knowledge that he will be very much in Bowyer’s thoughts for their assault on the bottom division.

And having enjoyed a fruitful spell under Bowyer’s leadership at Blackpool, the versatile defender is convinced City have the right man in charge to sort things out.

Mellor said: “I got my two best years under the manager, so I was thrilled when he signed. I’ve got 100 per cent faith in him to do well again here.

“He’s obviously got good stability now with an extended contract, so we’ll see what he can do.

“I had two brilliant seasons with him at Blackpool. He got us promoted in the first year and then we had a successful season in League One.

“This club is massive and obviously shouldn’t be there (in League Two) but I think he can do it and turn things round.”

There may be nothing more than battered pride to play for in City’s last two outings but Mellor intends to enjoy every moment. Injury issues have made for a stop-start first year at Valley Parade – not made any easier by the dismal results.

“It’s been a frustrating season, not just for myself personally, but everyone involved with the club,” he added. “It’s been up and down.

“I never thought we’d be in this position when I signed. I imagined that we’d be up there challenging but that’s football and you’ve got to deal with it.

“I’ve had that long out, I’m just really happy to be back out there and playing again – and successfully lasting the whole game.

“Everybody knows it’s over now but we’re not just going to throw the towel in. We’re going out there to win these two remaining games because that’s our job.”

Mellor returned to the ranks for Monday’s 1-1 draw with Gillingham, which at least halted the run of seven successive defeats that had followed since his last appearance against Peterborough.

And he popped up with City’s goal after converting Billy Clarke’s free-kick.

Bowyer hopes there will be more of that to come from Mellor at set-pieces as the right back used to do in Blackpool colours.

Mellor said: “If I’m honest, I didn’t really know much about the goal but I’ll obviously take it.

“I scored 14 in two years for Blackpool, seven in each season, so fingers crossed I can stay fit and carry on from where I left off.

“I wasn’t expecting to play the full 90 minutes on Monday. But I was thrilled to play and obviously get the goal as well.

“It was a physical game and that’s how it will be like in League Two.”
