Match Preview

Pidgeley doubt for Bantams Bradford goalkeeper Lenny Pidgeley faces a race to be fit for the home clash with Northampton. Pidgeley missed the midweek win at Morecambe due to a bruised thigh sustained in last weekend's triumph over Rotherham and if he misses out again, Jon McLaughlin will continue to deputise. Interim manager Peter Jackson must decide whether to recall winger Kevin Ellison, on loan from Rotherham, to the starting line-up or stick with striker Scott Dobie out wide, but has no new injury or suspension problems as his side chase a third straight league win. Skipper Simon Ramsden (thigh), central defender Shane Duff (calf) and midfielder Tommy Doherty (ankle) are all hoping to return to full training within the next couple of weeks. Successive league wins have eased the pressure on the Bantams, who now lie nine points clear of the relegation zone. Northampton boss Gary Johnson could have defenders Dean Beckwith and Liam Davis back for the trip. Centre-half Beckwith missed the 1-0 defeat to Macclesfield last week with a groin injury but is back in training and should start at Valley Parade. Left-back Davis - who can also be used on the wing - has not played for a month with an ankle injury but featured for the reserves in midweek and is in contention. Billy McKay is out for around six weeks after dislocating his elbow and fellow striker Leon McKenzie is absent with his knee problem but could return against Torquay next Friday. Defender Craig Hinton has left the club to take up the role of assistant manager at Bristol Rovers but midfielder Ryan Gilligan is available after a loan spell at Torquay. Forward Guillem Bauza could come into the starting XI after signing a short-term deal while defender Byron Webster is set for a debut after signing on loan from Doncaster.

Match Report

Cobblers end losing streak Northampton ended their four-match losing spell in a game of two penalties in a 1-1 draw at Bradford City. Bradford went ahead after eight minutes when striker Jake Speight scored from the spot after Northampton right-back Nana Ofori-Twumasi had handled Kevin Ellison's cross. However, Bradford could not add to their lead and the visitors equalised on the hour when striker Shaun Harrad was brought down by defender Lewis Hunt and Harrad himself, scored from the resulting penalty. Neither side could force a winner as defences dominated the remainder of a scrappy match and Bradford were reduced to 10 men in stoppage time when midfielder Jon Worthington was sent off for a second bookable offence by referee Rob Lewis who also booked nine other players.
