Match Preview: Macclesfield Town vs Bradford City

30 November 2019

The Silkmen return to the Moss Rose this afternoon as we prepare to take on Bradford City in our rearraganged Sky Bet League Two fixture.

We come into the game on the back of two consecutive goalless draws and we will be looking to go one better against The Bantams.

Last weekend's trip to the Peninsula Stadium saw us record the highest away following in the league and we look forward to seeing your magnificent support of the team continue this afternoon.

Our visitors are expected to bring a large away following to the Moss this afternoon so your support will prove to be more important than ever.

As for our opposition, Bradford are looking to bounce back to Sky Bet League One at the first time of asking after suffering relegation from the third tier last campaign.

Whilst they are currently in seventh place in the Sky Bet League Two standings, winning their two matches in hand on the majority of the league could see them move to the top of the table.

Despite this, they are without a victory in their last four matches in all competitions, although three of these matches have come against Sky Bet League One opposition in the F.A Cup and Leasing.com Trophy respectively.

Their last league fixture ended in the Bantams falling to defeat away at Plymouth Argyle last weekend as two first half goals saw the hosts take all three points in a 2-1 success.

Bradford City left-back Connor Wood had this to say ahead of the game:

"We are all looking forward to getting back out on the pitch and putting our wrongs right, this weekend.

"It was clear to everyone the standards we have set this season were nowhere-near matched, at Plymouth, especially in the first half.

"They will be a fighting team and we have to deal with that. It will be a tough test for all of us which we are well-aware of.

"We have to be at our best - like we have been for most of this season - in order to hopefully get a positive result."

Match Report: Macclesfield Town 1-1 Bradford City

30 November 2019

The Silkmen played out an entertaining stalemate at home to Bradford City this afternoon at the Moss Rose; as Jak McCourt's first half penalty was cancelled out by a second half James Vaughan header.

McCourt opened the scoring after good work down the right side from Corey O'Keeffe earned Macc a spot kick following a clumsy challenge from the Bradford backline.

The Bantams would eventually score the goal that their play for much of the game had warranted after a host of spurned first half opportunities.

Bradford started the game the better of the two sides, with James Vaughan posing a threat to the Silkmen backline on a constant basis in the opening period.

His first effort saw him poke the ball just wide of the goal from close in after three minutes as the Bantams looked to impose themselves on the game early on.

Whilst Bradford controlled possession for large periods early on, their next opportunity of note came on the 20-minute mark as the Bamtams’ high press saw David Fitzpatrick dispossessed on the edge of the Macc area.

The ball was played square to James Vaughan inside the six-yard box, but he somehow failed to hit the target and afforded the Silkmen a fortunate escape.

Bradford’s pressure would continue as the half wore on and only some improvised defensive work from Owen Evans and Fiacre Kelleher prevented our visitors from opening the scoring after Vaughan tried to get onto a short back pass.

A resilient first half display was topped off when Macc took the lead somewhat against the run of play.

Corey O’Keeffe did well to drive at the Bradford backline in a rare first half attack before being taken out by Ben Richards-Everton for a penalty.

Jak McCourt stepped up and duly converted from the spot, sending O’Donnell the wrong way as he slipped the ball into the bottom left corner.

The Silkmen continued to press at the start of the second period and Arthur Gnahoua almost doubled our lead with a header from close in after a dangerous McCourt free kick, but Bradford managed to scramble the ball off the goal line.

This proved costly some 20 minutes later as Bradford drew level courtesy of a James Vaughan glancing header into the bottom right corner.

As the match drew towards its conclusion Connor Kirby received a second yellow card and Macc were reduced to ten men for the final minutes of the game.

Substitute Ben Stephens would then be forced off through injury in stoppage time and the Silkmen secured a hard-earned point.
