Match Preview: Rovers v Bradford City

19 January 2018

All the content you need ahead of Saturday's clash with Bradford City at the Mem.

Rovers: The side head into this game unbeaten in four games and having only conceded two goals in those matches, whilst also addressing their away form by picking up draws in their last three trips. Back at the Mem, Rovers have been strong and were victorious last time out at BS7, coming from 1-0 down to win late in dramatic fashion thanks to goals from Stuart Sinclair and Liam Sercombe.

The Gaffer's view: Darrell Clarke spoke at his weekly press conference on Thursday morning to preview Saturday's game, whilst also touching on the transfer window, his side's form and new signing Bernard Mensah.


Five Things We Learnt From Darrell Clarke's Presser

Opposition: Bradford City came out second best in their most recent outing, losing 2-1 away to 21st placed Northampton last weekend. Stuart McCall's side is somewhat depleted at the moment with a number of injuries amidst a slight blip, which has seen them lose three of their last five and also crash out of the FA Cup to League Two Yeovil Town. Despite that, they still remain 6th in the league and in contention for a play-off spot, having lost out narrowly in last year's final to Millwall.


Opposition Boss: Stuart McCall

Last Meeting: The reverse fixture at Valley Parade was one to forget for Rovers, as they fell to a 3-1 defeat. Billy Bodin's 81st minute strike acted a mere consolation as the Bantams claimed all three points back in September last year.

Tickets: You can make a saving by buying advanced tickets which are available online until midnight tonight, or you can purchase them in the club shop until 5pm.
