KAMARA BOOM D-DAY!
The Valley Paraders' 34-year-old striker Carl Shutt has played a key role in opening the play-off door . . . even though he himself has been shown the door on a "free".
Shutt, who almost went to Chesterfield on transfer deadline day, scored the vital winner against Hull which allowed City to leapfrog over the Spireites to claim the last play-off place. And the former Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United hitman says: "That goal certainly ranks alongside the winner I scored for Leeds against Stuttgart in the European Cup four years ago.
"I am playing for my future now and though I may not be part of Bradford's long-term plans, I hope my experience can help get them into the First Division." One man who aims for a total "Shutt down" is Blackpool's veteran keeper Eric Nixon, who has been given special FA clearance to extend his three-month loan spell from Tranmere.
Nixon will be hoping for a staggering NINTH Wembley appearance and can draw on his vast previous experience with the Prenton Park play-off kings.
Blackpool boss Sam Allardyce had to admit his side have "committed suicide" after throwing away their chance of automatic promotion.
His younger players have been "devastated" by Pool's fade-out folly.
