Accrington Stanley chief executive Robert Heys has denied reports linking manager John Coleman to the vacated berth at League Two rivals Bradford City. Stuart McCall left his post following the Bantams' 1-0 defeat on Saturday and it is rumoured that Coleman is due to be contacted over filling the void. Coleman is the third longest-serving manager in the football pyramid behind illustrious company in Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger. Speaking to the media, Heys said: "We have had no official approach from Bradford for the services of John Coleman. "We are on a fantastic run so it comes as no surprise to us that he is being linked with a possible move away from the club. "However, I would like to think that John would like to continue and bring to fruition Stanley's promotion hopes this season. "We are on a such a good run and it would be a devastating blow to us if he was to leave."
