History of the Brentford v Bradford City fixture

Bradford City face a trip to Brentford at Griffin Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Bantams will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 14 and win only 6 of the 25 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in September 2006, the Bees carving out a narrow 2 - 1 victory in a League One match.
