Big game between 2 promotions chasers with huge implications on the table and promotion race.

Bradford were just in sight of a top 6 spot before they threw a wobbler, picking up 1 point from their last 2 and slipping back down the table. If they are serious about promotion, this is the kind of game they need to win to make a statement.

As for Burton, they've just kept winning and are 9 points clear of the teams in 3rd place. A win here would give them a commanding advantage and take them over the 70 point mark. A win here would be huge for them.

Hard to know what will happen here. Bradford are a good side on their day, but are very prone to throwing a wobbler. Burton can grind out a 1-0 win with the best of them, but can also stutter, as their results away at Southend and Crewe prove. Think this one has got 0-0 written all over it.

Form:
Bradford: WWDWLD
Burton: WWLDWD

I fancy us - we seem to be better prepared for games like this than say Colchester last Tuesday.

Can't understand why you charge £25 to get in you rob dogs.
3 away games in 7 days, and over 1500 fans taken I can't see many more than 400 going

No idea what will happen with Trevor Kettle in charge, would be happy with 11 players still on the pitch at the end.
If we get off to a reasonable instead of sluggish start as in the previous 3 away games then I think we might get something from tonights game.
3 points would be massive for us and give us a 12 point cushion over 3rd place.

Clarke and Proctor up front. Feel free to give your 'keeper a rest, you won't be needing him.

Started sluggish and never got going tonight. Bradford evidently played really well and deserved the points. No complaints.

Standard City, get battered by bottom of the league and beat the top of the league in the same week.

Donny on Sat who have lost their last 47 games on the bounce so guaranteed loss there.
