            Bradford City host Harrogate Town at the Northern Commercials Stadium this weekend in match week eight of the League Two season. Both sides only have two wins this season so will be looking to pick up a third this Saturday.

The loss came against Morecambe with Michael Mellon grabbing a brace along with JJ McKiernan also on the scoresheet in the 3 - 0 win for The Shrimps. The two wins came against Crewe Alexandra and Wrexham in the League Cup. Jamie Walker scored the only goal in the first half for Bradford in the 1 - 0 win over Crewe. Tyler Smith’s penalty gave Bradford the lead but an equaliser from William Boyle sent the tie to penalties. James Jones and Luke Young both missed to give Wrexham the 4 - 3 win. On an away trip to Mansfield Town, Bradford played out a 0 - 0 draw where they only managed two shots on target.

            Bradford’s last outing in League Two was a visit from Grimsby Town. Danny Rose gave Grimsby the lead in the first half, but Alex Gilliead scored in the last minute of normal time to grab the point and a 1 - 1 draw against Grimsby.

            Harrogate sit five spots below their opponents for this weekend in 21st. In seven games, Harrogate have two wins and five losses, leaving them with just six points. This means Harrogate hang precariously above the relegation zone, only three points clear.

            In the last five games for Harrogate, Neil Harris’ side have picked up two wins and three losses. The first win came against Morecambe at the end of August. Luke Armstrong converted his penalty and George Thomson scored in the 2 - 0 win over ten man Morecambe after Farrend Rawlinson picked up two yellow cards. The other win came in the Football League Trophy Group stage. Thomson scored his penalty and Anthony O’Connor also scored in the 2 - 1 win over Nottingham Forest’s U21 team. The first loss came in the League Cup where Blackburn managed to put eight goals past the Harrogate defence in a game where Harrogate could only manage one shot on target and 29% of the possession. In the visit from Barrow, Harrogate were also on the losing side. Kian Spence grabbed the only goal in the 1 - 0 win despite Harrogate having more possession and five shots on target.
