Potter in bullish mood
Off-field crisis overshadows defeat on the pitch
Coach Mick Potter is confident Bradford will stave off the threat of administration after watching his side fall to a hard-fought 24-18 defeat at Hull.
The Bulls battled gamely, but Tom Briscoe's try with 10 minutes left proved decisive, in a match that could be the four-time Super League champions' last before they are plunged into administration.
But close to £300,000 has already been raised in the four days since the club announced their worrying financial position and Potter believes they can be saved.
He said: "I am confident that something will happen. There is some more fundraising over the week which should pump it up even more.
"I know the board are talking to various people that are potential investors in the club which us a great thing for us."
Potter praised the support the club has found from around rugby league, with Widnes owner Steve O' Connor donating £10,000 earlier this week.
"The rugby league community has been great and it shows what rugby league means to the people," he said.
"They are very passionate. Bradford has a rich history and they don't want it to end."
