History of the Shrewsbury Town v Bradford City fixture

Bradford City face a trip to Shrewsbury Town at Gay Meadow on Saturday afternoon, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 13 out of 20 times.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in August 2007, the Shrews carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a League Two match.
