EVANS IS HOPING TO GET LIFT-OFF
LEE EVANS knows exactly what it takes to earn promotion from League One – but he’s expecting a bumpier ride with play-off-chasing Bradford City.
The on-loan midfielder went up with his parent club, Wolves, two years ago after they breezed to the League One title with 103 points.
But nothing is assured this time around. Ahead of the weekend, the Bantams were on the outside looking in, as far as the play-offs are concerned, in seventh place.
The two automatic spots are still up for grabs – though Burton Albion and Wigan Athletic have taken the initiative in recent weeks – and 21-yearold Evans says promotion is still anyone’s guess.
“With Wolves, we were a lot of points clear, and it was similar for Bristol City last year,” he added. “They walked away with it again. But there’s nobody doing it this season and that gives a lot of the hunting pack a chance.
“I think it would be a lot more comfortable for us and the fans if we were ten points ahead. But what it does prove so far is that anybody can beat anyone.”
