Chester City travel to Bradford for the first of 2 times in the next 7 days, Bradford also host City in the first round of the FA cup soon. City’s away record has been frankly superb this season, and is the main reason they are where they are in the league, the only problems they have with away games is getting there on time! City could go top with a win, which would mean little, but be a nice confidence boost.
Bradford manager Stuart McCall said the following talking after another loss, this time against Brentford.
‘I am running out of excuses and reasons,’ said McCall.
‘There was no lack of effort or desire, but we are just missing chances. Confidence has dipped in front of goal, but we have got to stick at it. It is a difficult time – there is no doubt about that’.
City Gaffa has not commented overly on the game, except to say he hopes the lads can handle the big crowd and head for top spot.
