More immediately, the ailing Super League club need to reach £500,000 in

pledges in order to stave off the threat of administration with HM Revenue and

Customs thought to be ready to issue a winding-up petition over an outstanding

tax bill and

Bradford had set a deadline of 5pm yesterday to reach their initial

target.An auction of sporting memorabilia at Odsal on Thursday raised £28,000, taking

the total pledge fund to the £370,000 mark, and the club were hoping a

20,000-plus crowd for last night's Super League derby

with Leeds would raise a profit

above their projected budget.The Bulls' Chief Executive Ryan Duckett said : "To allow us to process all of the pledges and reconcile the receipts from the Leeds game, we will not be making any announcement until approximately 11.30am on Saturday."
