Bradford got a statement sending win over Burton on Tuesday, puts them right level with Barnsley in the top 6 race. Are they for real, genuine top 6 contenders? Or will they fizzle out? Big game against a banana skin opponent.

Donny are in big trouble and could slip into the bottom 4 soon. Still, in this crazy league, you can't rule out them suddenly discovering some form.

Reckon this will be a draw for some reason, because...league one.

Form:
Bradford: WDWLDW
Doncaster: LLDLLL

Recent meetings:
01 Nov 2014 Bradford City 1-2 Doncaster Rovers League One
03 Apr 2015 Doncaster Rovers 0-3 Bradford City League One
17 Oct 2015 Doncaster Rovers 0-1 Bradford City League One

Of course we have to be considered contenders given where we are at this stage of the season, those above us aren't good enough to run away with things and I'm sure those below us will also include themselves in that.
On to Doncaster, a case of should win but the Colchester defeat blip puts doubt towards 'banker wins', hopefully long term that game will drill home that we can't just turn up and expect three points. Saying that, I'm hopeful tomorrow after beating Burton so comfortably and with the same team I'll go for a 2-0 win

We will lose I'm sure however most Donny fans are boycotting the game due to Bradford not reciprocating the ticket prices at the KM so we could just knick it if the players have found their bollocks

"To further clarify. There was never a reciprocal £15 deal with DRFC. This was communicated to them in writing at the time."

To clarify there was a Gentlemen's agreement to reciprocate, yes one of our staff fucked up by not getting it in writing but it doesn't absolve Bradford for not honouring it even after the discussion's that have taken place.

If we announced that we were offering some club cheaper tickets in the hope they'd do the same in the reverse fixture and they told us no because we didn't sort an agreement out then it's our board that would get crucified for being naive by our fans, without a doubt. Either Donny fans have a different mindset or Donny have a much better PR department.

The statement from City said they sent Donny a letter saying they weren't agreeing to it at the time. They've offered reduced travel costs for all your twitter outraged mob though which is probably more than they should have done.

Absolute rubbish! Donny fans not coming are doing so because of the team's bad run. If Donny were in play off position, their fans would fill the Bradford end. Just think, you are all missing the opportunity to emulate the Colchester choir singing "can we play you every week".

One club saying one thing another has a different story and no it isn't rubbish about the non attendance given that all supporters groups within the club have called for the boycott

Our away ticket prices have always been high and so are most away ends in this league, why not boycott every away game? <insert joke about your pish away support here>

It's more like the toys have come out the pram because they thought they'd be getting a tenner off.

looks like Donny fans could be boycotting a few games next year. The likes of Dagenham and Barnett charge £22/23 now and I doubt they'll be doing deals over a pint.

Very good I'm glad your happy to support fans being ripped off because that's basically what we are talking about

Agree with you there dvr. Prices at most clubs are too high and our fans have to pay the same prices at opponents grounds as your fans. I am taking the p that you are saying you are all boycotting a game for what is obviously a breakdown in communications between 2 sets of directors. I don't believe it for one minute and re-iterate that were Donny in a play off position, your fans would fill the Bradford end.

They've not done it out of greed as if Donny fans are 'boycotting' the game they will probably lose money. They've done it because it'd be fooking stupid to have external parties dictating their matchday ticket pricing policies without even having permission when they run a balancing act with the cheap season tickets. If every club in the league decided they were gonna charge City £10 to get in on the proviso that we'd charge them £10 in the reverse fixture then we'd have to charge every home fan who comes to VP on the day £10 as well. There'd be less draw to buy a season ticket and the scheme would disintegrate.

How are City ripping people off when their season tickets are the cheapest in the country and the matchday prices are on a par with most other clubs in the league? If that's what the boycott is over then it's nonsensical.

If this mix up hadn't occurred far more would be traveling tomorrow because at present our team needs its support

Decent performance apart from the last 5 mins when we shat ourselves. Against a poor side but should have had a few more. Proctor and Clarke look good together, Parky might actually have to drop Hanson...

Still cannot contemplate promotion after how poor we have been for long periods of the season but now we are actually in the top 6. Two tough games ahead so we will know where we stand in a fortnight.

Never doubted you SF, he certainly wasn't my choice.

No sign of the club sacking him? Can't say I know loads about your squad but that first eleven (when fit) doesn't strike me as relegation fodder.

How is Stuckers doing?

They haven't performed for the most part, Dickov's signings but Fergie hasn't improved them in fact they look worse. No sign of the sack it's not something we rush into, Dickov got /2 seasons more than most clubs would have and even SOD survived a long losing streak twice before he went. If we do go down I expect he will still be in charge next season.

The last bit makes me feel physically sick. He's dross.
