Bradford City joint chairman Mark Lawn has told BBC Radio Leeds that he is hopeful manager Stuart McCall will stay at Valley Parade after all.

McCall said last month that he would walk away if Bradford failed to make the League Two play-offs.

Tentative talks were first held between McCall and the board on Tuesday.

And Lawn said on Thursday that indications given by McCall led them to believe that their manager is now happier with life at City.

Lawn also stated that McCall had not handed in his resignation.

More discussions are planned with the City boss as the directors want to go through next season's player budget.

McCall has also confirmed that he will be sitting down with Julian Rhodes and Mark Lawn after the Chesterfield match to review the season and discuss future matters.

Fans are also doing what they can to convince McCall to stay - giant banners begging the City manager not to go have been made and will be displayed on Saturday at the final home league game of the season.
