Back-to-back home victories over Harrogate Town and Salford City have been required to move Bradford City back into contention, and they now sit just seven points adrift of third-palced Northampton Town with to games in hand.

Altough Mark Hughes will want to remain focused on strengthening their hold of a playoff spot, the top three has to be the aim, and it is an achievable target if they can improve on winning just five of their 12 matches at Valley Parade.

Prior to their previous back-to-back victories, Bradford had only won four of 15 matches across all competitions, something which will not be lost on Hughes as his side attempt to win three times on the bounce for the first time since the middle of September.

Meanwhile, Rochdale head into the contest having emerged victorious in just one of their 13 most recent matches across all competitions.

However, having ended a five-game losing streak with draws against Barrow and Newport County, there are reasons to be positive for Jim Bentley.

While the teams above Rochdale are threatening to move clear of them in the relegation battle, the Dale look back on track defensively having previously conceded 10 times in just three matches.

Bradford City vs. Rochdale Head to head

In the previous 25 meetings between these two sides across all competitions, Bradford City have claimed 12 victories while Rochdale have won eight, and they have drawn in five. Rochdale have scored 30 goals and conceded 43 in the process.

Bradford City Team News

While Hughes could opt to name an unchanged Bradford side, substitutes Andy Cook and Abo Eisa needed just a minute to combine for their team’s winner against Salford.

Cook’s return is more likely, the club’s top scorer having 13 goals this season, but Tyreik Wright has been a constant threat in each of the last two games.

Rochdale Team News

Unless he decides to freshen up his side due to the three-day turnaround, Rochdale should line up with an unchanged starting XI.

Having come through at least 75 minutes in quick succession on his comeback from injury, Liam Kelly may drop to the substitutes’ bench, with Abraham Odoh a replacement on the right flank.
