Recent respective form guides

Bradford City need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While Bantams have scored 6, a worringly large 13 have been leaked at the other end.

Bury's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. The The Shakers's have scored 9 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 11.

Bradford City find themselves struggling down in 16th position in the league having picked up 33 points from their 26 matches. Bury are holding the final promotion place in the Coca-Cola League Two, and have accumulated 48 points from the 27 games they have played so far.
