GO ON BRADFORD CITY GET PROMOTED THIS SATURDAY :thumbright: :thumbright: :ayatollah: :ayatollah:

Colin Doyle, who cost the club £1, is preparing for his date with destiny at Wembley vs Millwall in the League One play-off final

Thursday 18th May 2017

Bradford No 1 Colin Doyle on the time he competed with THREE England goalkeepers and how it’s helped him become League One’s clean-sheet king

COLIN DOYLE is the ‘Poundland’ keeper aiming to help Bradford to Championship riches against Millwall.

And no League One stopper has kept more clean sheets than the 28 that Doyle has managed in the last two seasons.

Colin Doyle will be between the sticks for Bradford on Saturday

And with 18 in all competitions this season, that works out a 5.5 pence a shutout.

Compare that to Manchester City keeper Claudio Bravo, who has kept nine clean-sheets this season, with a transfer fee of £17million that works out at £1.88million per clean-sheet.

The Irishman has plenty of experience in the bank after learning his trade under THREE England stoppers.

After 12 years as a Birmingham benchwarmer Doyle, 31, has finally emerged from the shadows of former Blues keepers Joe Hart, Jack Butland and Ben Foster.

Colin Doyle dives as the feet of Fleetwood striker Devante Cole in the play-off semis that Bradford progressed from

Colin Doyle has been on of Bradford’s success stories of the season, with 18 shutouts in all competitions

And that is thanks to a clause in his contract which meant he could leave Blackpool for just A QUID after their relegation from League One last year.

Doyle is now a game away from helping Bradford return to the Championship after a 13-year absence.

But it is not the Three Lions keepers Doyle credit with being his biggest influence but former Northern Ireland No.1 Maik Taylor.
