Recent respective form guides
Bradford City need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While Bantams have scored 6, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.
Torquay Utd.'s away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. While the Gulls have hit 8 goals, 12 have hit the back of the wrong net.
Bradford City's 42 points from 27 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 9th position. Torquay Utd. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 27 points from 28 matches.
