Essential guide to Tuesday night's fixture with the Bantams

Fleetwood Town welcome fellow top-six side Bradford City to Highbury on Tuesday evening (7:45pm k/o) for a Sky Bet League One fixture.




Uwe Rosler’s side welcomed Rochdale to Highbury last Saturday and played out a goalless draw. David Ball has his side’s best chance just 15 seconds into the second half, while Ian Henderson could have won it for Dale last on.


Town did however extend their unbeaten run in Sky Bet League One to 14 matches after the point.


Bradford came from behind to earn a point at Bristol Rovers. Chris Lines had given Rovers the lead just 15 minutes in at The Memorial Stadium, but Josh Law finished well from Charlie Wyke’s back-heel to level the scores.


The visitors had the better of the chances but had to settle for a point after Rovers ‘keeper Joe Lumley pulled off a string of fine saves.




Both sides last met at The Northern Commercial Stadium in September last year, with Bradford coming from behind to win 2-1.


Bobby Grant had given Town the lead with a superb solo effort in the first half, before Filipe Morias levelled with a powerful shot on the brink of half-time. Eggert Jonsson conceded a second half penalty which Billy Clarke stepped up and dispatched past Chris Neal.


Fleetwood: Neal (GK); McLaughlin, Pond (c), Eastham, Bell; Grant, Ryan, Jonsson (Bolger 83’), Woolford (Hunter 65’); Ball, Cole (Jakubiak 65’). Subs: Cairns, Nirennold, Duckworth, Glendon.




Stuart McCall offered the following thoughts on Tuesday’s game in his pre-match press conference this week.


“They're [Fleetwood] solid at the back and they've got a goal in them but I imagine it will be an open game on Tuesday night.


“We’ve taken some good points away from home, our downfall has been drawing games at home. We’re playing a team so close to us in the league so it does add a little more importance to the fixture.


“I think Tuesday’s game will see two teams that will go for the win and it should be an open game.”
