What Bradford City caretaker manager Kevin McDonald said about young goalkeeper

Bradford City’s interim manager, Kevin McDonald, has praised the resilience and character of young goalkeeper Harry Lewis in light of his recent performances. Although the 25-year-old made a few costly mistakes this season, which is not uncommon for goalkeepers, his standout performance against Wimbledon proved crucial to Bradford’s potential victory.

McDonald, who recently joined the club as a player, commented on Lewis’s track record, stating, “Harry had an excellent season last year, as far as I know. Despite a couple of errors this season, it speaks to his strong character and abilities as both a person and a player that he can recover and make crucial saves, which he did last week and again today. Such qualities are vital for a goalkeeper and forward players alike.”

McDonald also acknowledged Lewis’s proactive approach in coming off his line to make bold but effective saves, emphasizing the importance of starting positions. He noted that Lewis’s performance not only benefits the defense but also has a positive domino effect on the entire team’s forward movement.

For McDonald, this period represents his first substantial training-ground time since assuming the interim role. Despite a hectic initial schedule, with matches coming thick and fast, he is determined to focus on refining specific aspects of the team’s performance and addressing any issues from previous games.

McDonald expressed his satisfaction with the recent 1-0 win at Wimbledon and looks forward to having a full week to prepare for the upcoming match against Wrexham after a brief period of rest.
