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 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."
