Bradford have announced a press conference for Monday morning where they are expected to unveil Francis Cummins as their new coach.

The former Leeds winger has served as an assistant to Mick Potter for the last two years, and was recommended by the Australian to be his replacement.

Potter is returning to his home country after the end of a turbulent season in which he worked for free for a large part of it after the club went into administration. They are now back on a firm financial footing following a takeover led by businessman Omar Khan, but Potter has preferred to leave rather than carry on his credible work at Odsal.

Despite their problems and the six-point deduction they incurred as a result, they nearly made the play-offs, with Potter a good bet to be the winner of the Coach of the Year award as a result.
