📝 Match Preview: Bradford City (H)

All you need to know ahead of City's clash with the Bantams

5 February 2021

The Grecians will be looking to secure two league wins in a row when they face League Two's in form side, Bradford City, at SJP on Saturday.

Bradford are unbeaten in eight league matches under caretaker managers Conor Sellars and Mark Trueman, recording a 2-1 home win over Barrow at Valley Parade last weekend. 

City were 1-0 winners away to Stevenage on Tuesday evening with Rory McArdle's first half header securing all three points. Former Bantam McArdle will be unavailable for the Grecians this weekend though as he recovers from an injury picked up in the closing stages of that match. 

Deadline day signing Robbie Willmott could be handed his first City start, but Sam Stubbs is still unavailable. 

Manager's Thoughts

Manager Matt Taylor says he is expecting a high intensity game when eight-match unbeaten Bradford City visit SJP on Saturday.

"It's a shame the fans can't be there. It's one we are expecting to be a high quality game," he said.

"Bradford have recruited really well in January and their form shows what a great set of players they have. But they're coming to our place.
