SIMON Grayson begins the quiet revolution at City tonight by reminding his new players that promotion is the only aim.

Grayson and assistant Glynn Snodin make their first appearance in the dugout for the clash with Charlton at the Valley.

The management duo have taken only one training session since being announced on Sunday.

Yet Grayson's track record, with four promotions from League One level, indicates a boss who intends to hit the ground running.

One former player from the first of those at Blackpool insists the 48-year-old will stamp his authority in a low-key manner.

Former City midfielder Claus Jorgensen, a promotion winner under Grayson in 2007, revealed the new manager will not rant and rave.

Jorgensen said: "He's quiet and almost a shy person. Simon Grayson is not a shouter who will lose his rag at you.

"He let us get on with it. He assembled a good dressing room and let the players police themselves.

"He's not someone who wants the limelight and I think he'll be happy to let the players go about their business as long as it's to his plan."

Grayson, who will be without the suspended Matt Kilgallon, is confident he has made the right move after receiving other offers since leaving Sunderland. Barnsley were thought to be keen on talking to him about their managerial vacancy.

"I've had many opportunities to go to different clubs but I feel this is the right one for me," he said.

"I am fully aware of the size of the club, the fanbase here and the level of expectancy. Myself and Glynn are coming here with one aim – to get promoted.

"The club have had success over the last 18 months in terms of their league position. We are coming here to hopefully get them over the line."

Jorgensen was upset to see former City team-mate Stuart McCall sacked last week.

But he believes Grayson can be the ideal appointment to lift spirits and ensure they can last the pace for a top-six finish. Defeat tonight would see the Bantams drop out of a play-off place for the first time since the end of August.

Jorgensen said: "I was surprised and a bit disappointed that Stuart lost the job. Every team has a bit of a wobble during the season.

"Being a very popular guy around Bradford, it's sad to see him go. He missed out by such a small margin last season in the play-off final and they were going well again.

"Okay, it's been a difficult spell but you'll always get that at some time.

"But Simon Grayson knows this level very well and hopefully he can turn it round. Stuart has left him in a decent position and it's a great place to start in the top six."

Grayson has gone on to take Leeds, Huddersfield and Preston up but his first promotion was the most spectacular as Blackpool stormed through to success at Wembley with ten straight wins.

Jorgensen said: "We were just in and among the play-offs. We hadn't started the season very well after the team was assembled but as we got to know each other, we eventually really got going.

"Simon was always very well informed about players and the other teams and the information he gave us was very good.

"You've just had a transfer window, so it's a bit strange to make the change now. But Bradford have brought in a very good manager who knows exactly what is needed in this division."
