📝 Match Preview: Bradford City (A)

A familiar opponent for City's trip North

11 February 2022

We meet again... City head to Bradford City this Saturday in what will be the fifth meeting between the two sides this season.

With this being the second league meeting of the camapign, the two sides also faced each other in the FA Cup first round on three occasions after the original tie was a draw followed by two replays after the first was ordered to be replayed by the FA.

City are undefeated in all four matches this season, with two draws (0-0 and 1-1) and two wins (3-0 and 2-1), although the 3-0 win will go down in history for not actually taking place - the result was expunged after a complications with substitutions in extra time. 

The Grecians are currently unbeaten in six league matches - winning four - and have kept five clean sheets in that period following Tuesday night's late late show against Leyton Orient, when Cheick Diabate scored the only goal deep into injury time. 

Derek Adams' Bantams were also on the winning side in midweek, also 1-0, as they travelled back from Stevenage with all three points - their first league success in four matches.

City will be wearing our grey and pink away kit for this fixture.

Matt Taylor's Thoughts

Following three FA Cup meetings and one in the league, City travel to Valley Parade with the wind in their sails as they look to extend their six match unbeaten run in League Two.

"We know how difficult Saturday will be, but we want to produce our best display," Matt said.

"There is a slightly different look to the opposition since the last time we met - I think they've made seven signing in January - but our side won't look too dissimilar.

"They've added some very good players to their squad."
