History of the Bradford City v Cheltenham Town fixture

Bradford City prepare to entertain Cheltenham Town at Coral Windows Stadium on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. The Bantams have drawn both of the previous games against their opponents, however.

Recent respective form guides

Bradford City's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. Bantams have conceded a disappointing 7 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 3 of their own chances.

Cheltenham T.'s away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Robins have hit 9 goals, 15 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Bradford City are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 11 points from 11 matches. Cheltenham T.'s total of 17 points from their 11 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Npower League Two.
