Match Preview : Bradford City Women vs Alnwick Town Ladies

It is a return to league action for the Bradford City Women first team on Sunday as they take on Alnwick Town Ladies at their new home... the Horsfall Stadium. It is safe to say we should be in for a treat with this game as Bradford are trying to build momentum on the field to pick up those all important points to avoid the relegation zone whilst Alnwick are trying to gain their first win of the season. 

Alnwick are playing their first season in the league and I think it is safe to say that it isn't going too well for them so far as they are sitting at the bottom of the table on just one point, they do have quite a few games in hand on the teams around them so they will be looking to make an impact and try to change their fortunes around. 

As for Bradford they are going into this game in 9th place in the table just 5 points behind 8th place FC united with 4 games in hand. If Bradford can pick up points from this game it is bound to send out a warning signal to those teams around them who are also wanting to avoid the drop. On the other hand though Bradford are still just 1 point above the drop zone so they will be hoping to keep the momentum going from their past few games to get a bit further away from those teams also fitting to avoid relegation. I think if Bradford can find their feet on the new ground quickly we could see them really build on from their recent league draw with Leeds United where the team gave it their all to earn a point even after going behind a few times. I think this just goes to show how the team is really progressing this season as they aren't seeming to give up when decisions and results go against them they are really fighting to prove themselves, something that as a fan is great to see. 

Bradford are definitely going into the game in the better form but we have seen this season form means nothing in this league and anything can happen and with fixtures starting to build up. Bradford are definitely going to be giving it their all to keep that momentum going and to show those they will be playing soon they are not a team to be taken lightly. We are seeing so many improvements from the team and let's hope Sunday's result shows that. 

This is the sides first meeting and with it being on a new ground for Bradford too I think we could be in for a good game with both sides wanting those all important 3 points. With it being a pay what you want scheme at the turnstiles lets hope we also see plenty of fans come out to support the team at their new home and really get behind them to get that win. 

If you are free on Sunday afternoon definitely head down to the Horsfall Stadium to see for yourself how this game plays out.
