Bradford manager Stuart McCall has been sacked by the Sky Bet League One promotion hopefuls.

In announcing the news, the club said the decision "has not been taken lightly", with McCall going after six straight losses.

The 53-year-old was in his second spell with the League One club and, despite their poor run, leaves them in sixth place.

Former Sunderland, Preston and Leeds manager Simon Grayson is the early 2/1 favourite with Sky Bet to take charge of Bradford.

Alan Stubbs, Brian McDermott, Lee Clark and Paul Ince (all 10/1) are other names in the early running.

"Unfortunately, we have now suffered six straight defeats and the last two fixtures in particular have not brought about the positive change in performances or results that we all hoped for," a statement on the club's official website read.

We believe that our current squad is capable of performing to a much higher standard than we have seen recently. We must all accept responsibility for the recent poor run of form, including our players who now have the opportunity to put it right.

"As such, we believe that a change is in the best interests of the club at this time in order to give us the best chance of finishing the season strongly.

"Finally, everyone at Bradford City would like to thank Stuart McCall for giving us all some wonderful memories. In two spells as a player and two as a manager, he has always given his absolute commitment to our club.

"Stuart is a City legend and always will be. He will, of course, always be welcome back at Valley Parade."
