STAN TERNENT will be doing his best to put one over on Stuart McCall tonight – but he’ll remain a big fan of the former Scotland international.
Bradford’s 44-year-old manager was skipper of the side when Ternent was assistant manager at Valley Parade in the late Eighties.
The Bantams came close to making the top flight in 1988, losing over two legs to Middlesbrough in the play-off semi-finals.
“Stuart was a great player for Terry Dolan and myself, and I’m not surprised he is now in management,” said Ternent.
“It was clear he would have a good career as a player, and of course he went on to excel with Everton and Rangers as well as playing for Scotland.”
As a player, Ternent reached the semi-finals of the competition with Carlisle in 1969-70, when the Cumbrians beat Town 2-0 at Brunton Park in the second round.
They missed out on Wembley after losing 4-2 on aggregate to West Brom.
Town’s best run was to the semi-finals in 1967-68 (they went out to Arsenal) while Bradford have twice made round five.
