Match Preview: Bradford City (H)

Seasiders Host The Bantams at Bloomfield Road

6 April 2018

Fixture | Blackpool vs Bradford City – Date | Saturday 7 April – Venue | Bloomfield Road

Blackpool will aim to bounce back from a disappointing Easter period when hosting Bradford City tomorrow. 

The match is the first of three consecutive home matches for The Seasiders, who will look to make that advantage count and push ever closer to achieving safety in the division. 

The Bantams, managed by ex-Pool boss Simon Grayson, head to Bloomfield Road knowing that a winning run of form is required to try and make the play-offs.  

Last Time Out: 

Kyle Vassell's 10th goal of the season came in vain, as Oldham Athletic battled back to beat Blackpool 2-1 at Boundary Park on Monday. 

Bradford, meanwhile, saw their home fixture against Walsall postponed, having previously been defeated 2-0 by Blackburn Rovers four days earlier. 

Team News: 

Mark Cullen has come through his substitute appearance unscathed and will be pushing for more minutes after seven months on the sidelines. Jim McAlister is also training with the squad again, however the match comes too soon for Kelvin Mellor (ankle ligaments). 

Matthew Lund and Tyrell Robinson could come into contention for Bradford, though Alex Jones, Jake Reeves, Ryan McGowan and Paul Taylor will miss the trip to Bloomfield Road. 

Betting Odds: 

Blackpool Win - 6/5
Draw - 9/4
Bradford City Win - 12/5
