Northern Commercials Stadium

League One play-off contenders Bradford City welcome struggling Bury to the Northern Commercials Stadium this New Year’s Eve.

Bradford go in to this home fixture off the back of three straight draws following their stalemate with league leaders Scunthorpe United on Boxing Day.  It was a respectable result, but the Bantams had chances to win the game, and left some fans frustrated at their options upfront. Having scored just two goals in their last six league games, you can see why fans are questioning their ability to put the ball in the back of the net.

Bury meanwhile held eighth-placed Fleetwood Town to a goalless draw last time out to end a run of 12 straight defeats in the division. That result saw the move out of the bottom three, and Chris Brass will be hoping to move up the table from this point forward, and distance themselves from the relegation zone.

    They may not have scored many recently, but they've not conceded many either. The Bantams should be able to keep a clean sheet against a poor Bury side.
