Gillingham vs Bradford City Preview

Bradford City will make the trip to Priestfield on Saturday to try and keep their undefeated start to the season in-tact against Gillingham.

With three wins and three draws in their opening six games, Bradford currently occupy 2nd place in League One, two points behind leaders Bolton.

Gillingham meanwhile lye in 8th place just outside the playoffs, but only two points behind Bradford, meaning a victory would see them overtake the Bantams.

A much stronger City side is expected to travel to Gillingham on Saturday. Rory McArdle, James Hanson, Stephen Derby, Haris Vuckic, Marc McNulty, Josh Cullen and Tony McMahon were all unavailable for the 1-1 draw against Millwall last weekend.

Nicky Law, who has been forced to act as a utility player so far this season, sarcastically told the Yorkshire Post: “We might even have a full bench!” City Boss Stuart McCall has only been able to name six subs out of the seven allowed in recent weeks due to the high number of injuries to his squad.

Vuckic and Cullen will both be available again for Saturday’s match, with Hanson and McMahon also pushing for some involvement.

KO: Priestfield, 3pm.
