OUR OPPONENTS

Northampton Town currently sit 17th in Sky Bet League Two, though recorded a 3-1 victory over Plymouth Argyle last Saturday.

Bantams fans will be familiar with the Cobblers in this division - after an emphatic 3-0 victory at Wembley in the League Two play-off final, back in 2013.

THE PARADER

Be sure to grab a copy of The Parader this afternoon, on sale for just £3 around the Utilita Energy Stadium. 

The front cover of the Bantams' official matchday programme features the latest in a collection of illustrations by Bradford artist and City fan Rob Dunn. 

Richard O’Donnell - who also features in 'The Big Interview' - is this week's cover star. He tells The Parader of his desires to extend his stay at the club and how goalkeeping coach John Vaughan has helped improve his game.

Other features include 'From The Top' with interim chief executive of the club - Julian Rhodes - and the popular 'Bantams Board'. 

Meanwhile, there are returning columns from Aaron Bower, Jason McKeown, Mick Lamb, John Dewhirst, David Markham, Katie Whyatt and Mike Harrison.
