McCall blasts ‘comic capers’ defending and admits January can’t come quick enough

Scunthorpe boss Stuart McCall admitted that ‘January can’t come quick enough’ as he witnessed his side slump to a 2-0 defeat to Bradford.

The Iron had started the better of the two sides at Valley Parade, but individual errors from Charlie Goode and Rory McArdle gift wrapped Bradford a festive three points and saw United drop into the relegation zone.

“It was the same at Doncaster last week, two unbelievably poor goals. Today was just ludicrous”, he told the press.

“When you give goals away, like we gave away again today, it is incredibly poor.

“It would be an offence to schoolboys to say it was schoolboy defending – the second goal is just comic capers.”

McCall added that there could be as many as four additions on the first day of the January transfer window.

“I’m quite clear in my mind about what needs to be done now.

“It’s the first time I’ve said this, but January can’t come quick enough for the squad and for the club..

“The fans deserve far, far better. It’s like a broken record from the week before. We’re not giving ourselves a chance in games.”
