Match Previews


12 April 2021

The Bantams are back in midweek action - hosting Crawley Town at the Utilita Energy Stadium in Sky Bet League Two.

Mark Trueman and Conor Sellars’ side are unbeaten in the last four matches and remain three points from the play-offs in 11th place.

We have created this Big Match Preview to take you through all of the key information and insight into Tuesday’s fixture.

City: Lee Novak scored in the return fixture against the Red Devils but will be sidelined for Tuesday’s clash. He remains out with Callum Cooke, Reece Staunton and Zeli Ismail.

Levi Sutton could be in contention for the fixture after Conor Sellars last week confirmed he was close to returning from injury.

Crawley: Tom Nichols is the club’s top scorer this season with 15 goals and is looking likely to feature - having played against Southend United last time out.

Former Bantam Josh Wright started against the Shrimpers on Saturday and should play a part in Tuesday’s encounter at the Utilita Energy Stadium.


City battled to a 1-1 draw at the People’s Pension Stadium in Mark Trueman and Conor Sellars’ first game as joint-caretaker managers.
