History of the Bury v Bradford City fixture

Bradford City travel to take on Bury at Gigg Lane on Tuesday evening, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 31 games played, Bantams have recorded 8 wins, and Bury have come away with 12 victories.

The last time the two teams met at Bury was back in April 1999, over five years ago, as the visitors ran out cosy 0 - 2 winners in a League Division One match.

Recent respective form guides

Bury's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. The Shakers have conceded a disappointing 6 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 3 of their own chances.

Bradford City's away form is none too clever either, collecting 2 wins and 3 draws from the last six. The games have constituted a decent return of 9 goals for the Bantams, and 8 goals against.

Bury are currently lying in 20th place in Coca-Cola League Two having mustered a points tally of 24 from their 24 matches played. Bradford City find themselves struggling down in 17th position in the league having picked up 30 points from their 24 matches.
