Lawn works out the safety tally for City

BRADFORD City joint chairman Mark Lawn believes 50 points will be enough to guarantee Football League survival for the club.

The Bantams, 18th on 39 points, have been dragged back into the dogfight at the bottom of League Two by two defeats in a week.

Now, ahead of tonight’s trip to Crewe Alexandra, Lawn said: “As soon as we can get to 50 points the better for everyone – we need to get to 50 to be safe.”
