📝 Match Preview: Bradford City (A)

All you need to know ahead of City's FA Cup match

5 November 2021

Exeter City's road to Wembley begins this weekend as they travel to face fellow League Two side Bradford City at the Utility Energy Stadium.

The Grecians' unbeaten run currently extends to 15 matches in all competitions following last weekend's 2-1 win at Salford City and will be looking to go one better than last seasos when they were knocked out in Round Three by Sheffield Wednesday. 

The Bantams have lost just one of their last six matches and drew 1-1 with League Two leaders Forest Green Rovers last weekend. City have form in the Emirates FA Cup, having made the quarter finals as a League One side in 2015, having beaten Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on their way to a 3-0 defeat to Reading. 

Matt Taylor's Thoughts

"It's one to look forward too, hopefully there will be a good crowd there," Matt said ahead of the trip to West Yorkshire, where they will match up with the side they drew 0-0 with on the opening day of the season.

"We'll pretty much treat this like a league game. We've done nothing different this week, and we've watched them [Bradford] closely in recent week. Not too much has changed.

"They played well last week and that shows where they are at. We have to look forward to it and have nothing to fear. We have to control our bodies and minds and hopefully the lads are in a good mindset.

"We know what is at stake this weekend."
