Bradford want Derek Adams to quit Morecambe and become new manager after League Two play-offs

BRADFORD want Derek Adams to quit Morecambe and become their new boss after the play-offs.

The Scot has emerged as the first-choice replacement for the Bantams after the sacking of joint-managers Mark Trueman and Conor Sellars.

But they will have to wait until he steers his side through the League Two shootout.

Adams has done a remarkable job at Morecambe after also taking Plymouth to promotion from the fourth-tier.

Bradford can offer the 45-year-old a far bigger budget and the chance to lead another side to League One – but with a better hope of staying there.

The Shrimps almost made it into the top-three automatic places with a 2-0 final day win over Adams' prospective new club on Sunday.

And they face Tranmere – who have just sacked manager Keith Hill – in the two-legged play-off semis that begin next week.

Morecambe's successful campaign was a world away from Bradford's miserable finish, coming home 15th after a post-Christmas purple patch gave way to a seven-game winless run.


Speaking after sacking double act Trueman and Sellars on Monday, chief executive Ryan Sparks detailed the need for 'experience' in the dugout.

He stated: "We feel, at this point, we need more experience to take us forward into the summer and next season which, for us, is a hugely significant one.

"We have a crucial few months in front of us, and it is important we are in the best-possible position to be able to prepare for them."
