Terriers v Bantams
Let the fur and feathers fly!

Sorry this preview is so late and scant in contact. I had to upgrade a programme on my PC and afterwards all hell broke lose and it has taken me a while to get back to normal!

We have played Bradford at home 18 times in the last 84 years, winning seven, drawing six and losing five. The last time we met them in the league, at home, was in 1998. They were heading up into the Premiership but we beat them 2-1!

Interestingly when I started supporting Town the Bantams were a humble 3rd Division club whilst we strutted our stuff, or tried to, in the top division. Leeds, Barnsley and Manchester United were all 2nd Division.

Currently Bradford are at 7th in the table with 32pts, 3 places above us on 29pts. Current form for both of us, as far as results are concerned, is diabolical. In the ?Last Eight Games? table they occupy 13th and we are 19th.

We know, of course, that we are playing better than the bare results suggest and we must have a chance in this must win, want to win match.

As far as I am aware, apart from suspended Lee Fowler, injured Steve Yates and Andy Booth, we have a full squad available.

For Bradford only Tom Kearney is definitely out. Dean Windass is hoping to be fit.

The records suggest that the team that scores first will win. Let it be the Terriers!

Don?t forget it is a 12noon kick off! There will be the full quota of 3,800 Bradford fans at the Galpharm
