Bradford City have parted company with manager Stuart McCall.

Bradford City have sacked Stuart McCall.

Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Oldham Athletic was the Bantams' sixth straight defeat.

A statement, on the club website, says: "This decision has not been taken lightly, and this is a sad day for everyone involved. 

"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.

"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.

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