Default Bradford City (H) - Tís & Pís

Our 30 minute heroes cross the Pennines into Yorkshire to take on the Bantams this weekend, weather permitting.

They were a reasonable team under Sparky Hughes when we lost on penalties in the cup, but have picked up 2 good wins since his demise. They have the highest average gate figures so it should be a cracking atmosphere. The big question is which Wrexham team will fight the Bantams in those frustrating early moments before the cavalry is brought on.

PP has yet to find the best balanced Starting-XI, due to injuries, suspensions, inconsistencies and uncertainty in his own mind. This will be another tough test so, hopefully, weíll see a couple of changes that will get us over the line.

I really enjoyed the final 25 minutes against the wastrels of Salford City, but have resigned myself to not seeing total football until January. Meanwhile itís a case of grinding out results to stay in the hunt.

Will we be the Cock oíthe North or a bunch of lightweight chickens come Crackerjack time? The pressure is constant; so roll up those sleeves and start clucking, defending and scoring!

Parky is highly respected there. This is his second visit to Valley Park after leaving Bradford.

Bradford Telegraph and Argus article published yesterday
https://www.thetelegraphandargus.co....eturn-wrexham/

PHIL Parkinson admits he cannot wait to go back to Valley Parade for the first time in almost seven years.

The club’s history-making manager returns with Wrexham for a mouth-watering clash on Saturday.

It will be only the second occasion that he has been back at City since ending his five-year stint in charge in 2016.

With over 21,000 tickets sold, the club are eyeing their biggest modern-day league crowd – and Parkinson is excited to be part of it.

“I’m really looking forward to going back to Valley Parade,” he said.

“My memories of being at Bradford are the big crowds and atmosphere and this weekend’s going to be no different to that.

“Everyone knows the potential support at Bradford and it’s amazing. We’ve sold out our allocation again which is another great indication of the level of support.

“Everywhere we go we sell out the away end. Whether it’s the National League or this league, we’re used to going away from home and it being the team’s biggest attendance of the season.

“It’s going to be a cracking game between two good sides. Bradford have got a bit of momentum from the last three games and we’re in decent form.

“We had to work exceptionally hard to get back into the league.

“Those away days at Kings Lynn and Dover were tough and that’s what made the National League such a challenge.

“But the supporters, the staff and the players worked hard to go to stadiums like Valley Parade, real traditional arenas, and embrace the occasion.”

City edged past Wrexham on penalties in the Carabao Cup in August. But with Mark Hughes gone since then, Parkinson expects a different type of game as Kevin McDonald chases a fourth straight win in the caretaker role.

Parkinson added: “Kevin has done well since he’s been put in and got three good results.

“Anyone who takes over is going to put their own mark on the team. That’s what it looks like Kev’s done.

“Mark Hughes was unlucky last year after getting them in the play-offs.

“Sometimes, the year after a play-off defeat can be a tough start to the season.

“I’ve been in and managed teams who’ve lost in the play-offs and it can, for whatever reason, take a bit of time to get going again.

“But the club have decided to make the change and they are having some good results.

“It’s up to us to analyse Bradford during the week and put our game-plan together to go there and keep our own run going.”

Parkinson’s previous visit to City with Bolton finished in a thrilling 2-2 draw in January 2017 – the visitors hitting back from two down in front of a packed 21,190 crowd.

“I remember it vividly and it was a highly-charged atmosphere for so many reasons,” he told the T&A.

“Bradford played so well first half and obviously we came back into it and got a hard-earned draw, which was an important point for us in our promotion season.

“I’ve only been back the once and can’t wait to be there again.

“Bradford played a big part in mine and my family’s lives and for Steve (Parkin) and his family.

“I used to drive into Bradford and see the ground from the distance. It was always special every single match day and I was very proud to be manager.

“Our kids followed the team home and away when we were there and there are so many incredible memories of the cup games and promotion and establishing the club at the top end of League One.

“I’m really looking forward to seeing some people I haven’t seen for a long time. But we’ll do everything we can to get the points.”

Our goals (for and against) have come at home - 41 goals in 7 games (bonkers).

Away from home, for and against is only 11 goals in total in 6 games (4 scored and 7 conceded). Taking out the Stockport game, we've only conceded 2 on the road in 5 games.

I think it will be be a tight game and I would settle for 1-1.

5 points from the next 3 games should be the target - anymore and we've done well in my opinion.
