History of the Bradford City v Wigan Athletic fixture

Bradford City play host to Wigan Athletic at The Bradford & Bingley Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 1 of the 11 previous games, with the Bantams winning just 5.

The last time the two teams met at Bradford City was more than a decade ago, in March 1993, the Bantams carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a League Division Two match.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Nothing seems to be going right for the Bantams at home recently, and I can see no immediate turn around in fortunes as the Latics come away with an easy victory. Away win
