Former Wigan Athletic manager Gary Caldwell is interested in speaking to Bradford City about succeeding Stuart McCall at Valley Parade, Sky Sports report [16:25].

McCall was sacked on Monday following a run of six straight defeats - five of which came in the league.

Nevertheless, Bradford remain in the League One play-off positions, with a two-point cushion over seventh-placed Charlton Athletic.

Bradford City manager Stuart McCall looks on during the Sky Bet League One match between Northampton Town and Bradford City at Sixfields on September 23, 2017 in Northampton, England.

And managing last season's beaten play-off finalists would seemingly appeal to Caldwell, who has been out of work since Chesterfield sacked him last September.

Sky Sports earlier reported [16:00] that Bradford 'will work through applications in the next few days' before providing a further update on their managerial vacancy.

Title-winning experience

Caldwell has only held two managerial roles, although the first of which saw him lead Wigan Athletic to the League One title in 2016 - which could bode well for Bradford.

The 35-year-old - who was sacked by the Latics five months later - also enjoyed a successful playing career, in which he spent four trophy-laden seasons at Celtic, won the FA Cup at Wigan and achieved 55 caps for Scotland.
