Bradford City AFC host Southend on Saturday as Simon Grayson’s side look to build on Tuesday’s two nil victory over MK Dons and continue their push to the play-offs.
The Bantams look to be in full fighting mode, as they take on a Southend side who are 12th in the league with 59 points.
Southend make the trip to Valley Parade looking to finish the season strong, and build on their three nil win over an Oldham side that are fighting to stay up.
Bradford are unbeaten in their last four games, winning two and drawing two, and another three points are crucial if there is any chance of the Bantams securing a play-off spot with just three matches left to go and a six point deficit to make up.
Grayson’s men will also be hoping that other results in the league will go their way, as a Scunthorpe loss this weekend to MK Dons away from home along with a victory of their own would half the points gap between Bradford and a play-off spot and, fans are hopeful going into Saturday’s match following the teams good form.
Another great 3 points, class performance from the boys! Onto Saturday now!⚽️❤️ #bcafc

Southend United will not be a push over on Saturday though, as they have won their last two games, scoring seven and keeping two clean sheets, so Bradford’s attackers will have their work cut out for them.
When Bradford travelled down south to face Saturdays visitors earlier this season, the score finished two one in the Bantams favour, and a similar result is crucial if Braford have any hope of going to Wembley next month.
