Another intriguing battle between 2 teams in the top 6.

Wigan have now drawn their last 3 which has halted their title challenge a little bit and allowed Walsall to catch back up. They need to get back to winning ways, but how much did having to claw their way from behind to get a draw last week against Colchester knock the confidence?

As for Bradford, are they filling the away end? Wouldn't be the first time they've done that. They've been on a great run of form over the last few months, but with teams below them waiting to pounce, they can't afford to let up.

Should be a decent game hopefully, good crowd too. I can see a draw in this one.

Form:
Wigan: DWWDDD
Bradford: DWLDWW

Massive, massive game for both sides; but aren't they all for most at this rage of the season?

A win for Wigan is a must given Walsall beat Fleetwood midweek - and should they lose tomorrow, and Burton pick up all three, that top spot may be out of reach.

For us, it's equally as important. A win and we can start to believe - particularly if the teams around us drop points.

McMahon and Cullen are doubts, so I'm not sure what to expect. I think we'll lose in all honesty.

Going to be around 3,500-4,000 City there to cheer the lads on.

I think there'll be goals in this one, and for someone to give the other a good hammering - we're capable of pulling a shock 3-0 out of nowhere, similar to Peterborough away but (more likely) we could see ourselves and our current optimism levels take a spectacular reality check.
McMahon is very replaceable for me, Cullen much less so and he's forming a very good pair with Lee Evans in the middle, our success lies there. Likewise Proctor and Clarke are linking up very well up top, so we are capable of scoring.
3-1 either way.

Whilst our performances over the last 3 games which we drew weren't the best, we still manaed 25 shots against Pterborough and could and should have scored 5 but only managed 1. Against Colchester we wasted enough chances to score enough to kill the game off before half time and ended up drawing.

We always struggle to score against Bradford and haven't beaten them in a while, our record is poor against them. Hopefully we can convert chances and end our winless run against them, we need to play on the front foot from the off and if we can get an early goal, we will be hard to contain.

Feel robbed but we've only ourselves to blame when we missed so many
