Ken Anderson has called on the town to rally behind Wanderers’ promotion bid this season.

The chairman believes “giant strides” have been made at the Macron since the takeover six months ago, when the club’s financial problems had dragged morale to rock bottom.

Anderson is happy to report a very different environment at Wanderers these days and with a bumper crowd expected for this weekend’s visit of Bradford City he has asked supporters to give Phil Parkinson’s side their maximum backing.

“Together I think we can make this a memorable season,” he said. “It is six months since we completed the takeover and enormous credit should go to Phil Parkinson and his staff for creating the positivity the town, and myself, are enjoying at the moment.

“I am delighted to see we are expecting a big crowd against Bradford. If we are to progress as a club, I’d love to see us return to the kind of attendances we have enjoyed in the recent past at this stadium.

“We have made giant strides but we need absolutely everyone to play their part if we are to get where we want to be as a football club.”

Anderson is encouraged by Wanderers’ start despite a dip in form over the last few weeks and a first defeat at Walsall last weekend.

In fact, the chairman admits Parkinson’s side have exceeded his expectations.

“I have to say that when this season’s fixtures were announced a few months ago, I was very apprehensive when I saw our opening games,” he said.

“And despite dropping points recently, if someone had told me that after eight games, we would be in the top two, l would have bitten both his hands off.

“I am confident, that it is only a matter of time before the domination and possession we have had in recent games, will bring the goals and extra points we deserve.”

Wanderers will welcome Jay Spearing back from suspension but lose Keshi Anderson after his controversial red card at the Banks’s Stadium.

Top scorer Gary Madine is not expected to be fit in time to face Bradford but a close eye will be kept on the fitness of striker Zach Clough in the build up before deciding if he can start.
