For the 2015/16 season, Yorkshire TV has asked WOAP writers Katie Whyatt and Mahesh Johal to write a regular column about Bradford City’s fortunes, as part of their new Blog ‘Off the Post’.
This week, Katie has written about Devante Cole’s dramatic debut for the Bantams, and how the young striker will be looking to follow a similar career path to his famous father.
And even now, from the little the world’s seen of Devante, the similarities to Andy are striking. In a goal against Port Vale, Devante slipped into the box, ran in behind his defender and chinked home at the near-post – a carbon copy of so many of his dad’s finishes. Devante looks a good signing and his pedigree is obvious. His movements, his composure in front of goal and in one-on-ones, his positional awareness, the way he works the channels, and his pace to open and cut up defences – the apple never falls too far from the tree.
