...AND NOW ONTO SWINDON

22 February 2015

Fresh from the home draw with Walsall on Saturday, City's attentions now turn to a trip to promotion contenders Swindon Town this coming Tuesday (24 February 2015).

The Swindon match was originally scheduled for the back end of last month but had to be rearranged to fit in City's memorable trip to Chelsea in the F.A Cup.

With the games coming thick and fast, the visit to Swindon's County Ground will be the Bantams' sixth match in only eighteen days. 

After the trio missed Saturday's Walsall encounter, Andrew Davies, James Hanson and Filipe Morais all remain doubtful for Tuesday's Swindon match.

Sitting third in the league, Swindon have actually currently hit a bit of a slump in recent weeks - losing their last three on the trot - but they are rated by many managers across League 1 as one of the best footballing sides in the division.

Having won at Chesterfield, Fleetwood Town, Rochdale, Milton Keynes Dons and Preston, North End, while also twice coming from behind to draw at Bristol City, Phil Parkinson's men are no strangers to getting results away from home against promotion-chasing sides this season though.

Bantams assistant Steve Parkin said: "The lads have proved throughout the season that we have some very good footballers in our team.

"They relish getting on the pitch and showing what they can do, and Tuesday will be no different.

"It will be a tough game and another big ask of the lads, but it is a challenge we are really looking forward to.

"They looked a very strong side when we played them at home and we probably weren't at our best that day but we're a different team now and we'll throw something different at them.

"On their day, they are a great team but we have to make sure we go there full of confidence, which we will."
