Recent respective form guides

Bradford City's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Bantams have scored 4, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Nottm Forest's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. The Forest's have scored 8 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 9.

Bradford City are stuck down in the relegation zone of Nationwide League Division One with a return of just 12 points from their 14 games thus far. Nottm Forest's 21 points from 14 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 9th position.
