McDonald Expecting Tight Game

26 February 2016

Manager Previews Bradford City Fixture

Neil McDonald is expecting a tight game against a physical Bradford City side at Bloomfield Road tomorrow.

The previous encounter between the two teams was settled by a goal from James Hanson, however opportunities were few and far between.

A disciplined and hard working side, another stern test is expected from the opposition as both sides look to pick up a big three points for different reasons,   

"I wouldn't expect them to play any other way, they're a very physical team, they get the ball forward quickly and they try and play to their strengths," the manager said.

"That's what we've certainly been trying to do at home and we must continue to do that. It will be a fascinating game, that's for sure."

The Seasiders, who have picked up points in six of their last eight games at Bloomfield Road, will look to sign off the month of February on a positive note.

"We don't want to go through February only having one point. We were gutted with the result last weekend because I thought we controlled the game as much as we possibly could away from home, against a passing team. The goals that we conceded were certainly avoidable and to score two away from home and not come away with anything is vastly disappointing.

"We're start on a new wave now though and we'll be looking to make the most of our good record here at home," he added.
