Team News, Preview, and Swindon vs Bradford Lineups

Swindon

The home team has lost virtually every chance to gain ground on teams within the top seven spot, and for the remaining five games they can only watch how clubs above them are looking forward to extending their season with higher goals on their minds. Swindon's form has dwindled in the worst possible time and now they will regret not managing their form more positively.

Possible lineup: Brynn, Blake-Tracey, Clayton, Brewitt, Hutton, Williams, McEachran, Khan, Wakelin, Austin, Hepburn.

Bradford

Contrary to their opponents, Bradford has kept its unbeaten run to eleven games which gave them a five-point cushion in front of teams who are trying to push them out of the way and into the promotion playoffs. Bradford has won three from their past five games and not only that they are close to catching the playoffs position, they can still achieve the ultimate goal and advance to the top three and earn direct promotion to League One. It is quite remarkable to watch how one player has managed to turn Bradford's fortunes around, and that player is Andy Cook who is by far the best player on the team.

Possible lineup: Lewis, Halliday, Stubbs, Crichlow-Noble, Ridehalgh, Gilliead, Smallwood, Banks, Walker, Chapman, Cook.

Starting Lineups

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.

Player to Watch: Andy Cook

The best player for Bradford this season, but also the top scorer in League Two, Andy Cook has scored 24 goals. He also leads his team in the assists department with six. He is the focal point of Bradford's tactics and he will be eager to extend his terrific run of goalscoring form.
