Bradford (Park Avenue’s) interim assistant manager Lee Fowler blasted Tuesday’s “damp squib” of a derby against Farsley Celtic and urged his players to start retaining tactical information ahead of a tough trip to Boston United tomorrow.
He also admitted that Avenue were finding hard to compete financially at present, with potential new signings frequently falling through due to wage demands. He suggested that he would even be seeking feedback and advice from former manager Mark Bower.
Referring to the 3-0 midweek defeat at Farsley, Fowler moaned: “It wasn’t much of a derby. There was no atmosphere or tackles flying in.
“It seemed subdued on the pitch and the fans were too, with the league position we’re in.
“Farsley deserved to win, even if the result did flatter them, with goals in the 86th and 89th minute.”
