History of the Accrington Stanley v Bradford City fixture

Bradford City face a trip to Accrington Stanley at Fraser Eagle Stadium on Saturday afternoon, having the edge over their hosts in previous meetings. The visitors have won 9 of the 19 previous games, with the hosts winning just 6.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in January 2008, as the visitors ran out cosy 0 - 2 winners in a League Two match.

Recent respective form guides

Accrington Stanley's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While The Reds have scored 4, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

Bradford City's away form is none too clever either, winning 2 of the last six, but losing the other 4. While the Bantams have hit 7 goals, 11 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Accrington S. find themselves struggling down in 18th position in the league having picked up 7 points from their 9 matches. Bradford City's total of 16 points from their 9 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca-Cola League Two.
