Podcast - FootballTalk: Can Sheffield United, Bradford City and Doncaster Rovers make it a clean promotion sweep?

GOING UP: Chris Wilder, Stuart McCall and Dareen Ferguson have all steered their clubs into promotion contention.

WHILE Yorkshire’s Championship rivals battle it out at the top of the table for a place in the play-offs – and possibly even more – there are further success stories lower down the Football League.

In League One, it seems only a matter of time before Sheffield United are finally returned to the second tier after six years at their current level, manager Chris Wilder having guided them to top spot and 10 points clear of third spot.

Bradford City – in Stuart McCall’s second stint as manager – are also in the mix, currently sitting fourth in the standings and just three points off second place.

And in League Two it is only a matter of time before Darren Ferguson seal a return to League One at the first attempt.

The YP’s chief football writer Richard Sutcliffe joins host Phil Harrison to discuss the respective promotion merits of each club and how impressive each manager/coach has been this season.

And, by way of a timely bonus, we talk about York City’s battle for survival in the National League – along with fellow Yorkshire strugglers Guiseley and North Ferriby – and how that contrasts with the Minstermen’s preparations for another trip to Wembley in the FA Trophy final on May 21.
