SIR - The exciting potential of Bradford City under the stewardship of Mark Hughes was highlighted so vividly through the attendance at the last and, in the context of the disappointing season, "meaningless" match against Carlisle!

A total of 8,283 fans turned up which was seven more than the capacity crowd of 18,276 during City's first season in the premiership in 1999/2000. We live in hope!
