Match Preview: Rovers v Bradford City

13 April 2019

Rovers return to home soil as they host rock-bottom Bradford City in a crucial SkyBet League One clash.

After suffering their first back to back defeats under Graham Coughlan following the losses to promotion-chasing Doncaster Rovers and Luton Town, Rovers managed to get back on the points trail with a 0-0 draw away to Coventry City.

Those two defeats were only the third and fourth in the league under Coughlan's reign and the point at the Ricoh Arena left Rovers in 16th and three points above the relegation zone with five games remaining.

Victory over Bradford on Saturday could propel the side up to as high as 13th and six points clear of the drop.

Gaffer's View: The Manager addressed the media on Friday morning at the training ground as he looked ahead to tomorrow's clash with The Bantams.

JCH's View: Jonson-Clarke Harris sat down with the press after quite the week for the striker, which saw him pick up the Rovers Goal of the Season and March SkyBet League One Player of the Month awards.

Opposition: Gary Bowyer's men really are struggling at the moment, as they sit at the very foot of the table and a huge eight points adrift from safety. Their recent form certainly reflects their league standings, having lost all of their last five games, managing just a single goal in the process. Away from home, no one in the division does more poorly with City claiming just 13 points out of 20 games on the road this season.
