Bradford City are searching for their fifth full-time boss in seven years after it was announced that Peter Taylor will leave the club by mutual consent following the League Two home game with Stockport.

Taylor, 58, met with the club’s joint chairman Julian Rhodes on Wednesday after the Bantams’ home defeat to Chesterfield and will be leaving Valley Parade after just 12 months in charge at the club.

The Bantams have slipped to 21st place in the table, six points above the relegation zone, after a run of one win in their last nine league matches.

On the exit of Taylor, appointed as Stuart McCall’s successor last February, joint chairman Mark Lawn said: “Everybody would have chosen Peter Taylor out of the candidates available to us because of his CV.

“The simple fact is that unfortunately it just hasn’t worked out for him.”
