The Bantams will venture south to visit Broadhall Way for a Sky Bet League Two meeting with Stevenage, set for 7.45pm.

A fruitful January saw Boro edge up the table after a difficult start to the season which resulted in the end of Alex Revell’s time at the helm.

At the time of Revell’s departure, Stevenage sat two points above the relegation zone and Paul Tisdale’s arrival helped turn the tide at the Lamex Stadium as they picked up 11 points from a possible 18 in the first month of the year.

The Boro’s scintillating January form hit a stumbling block at the turn of the month and, like City, are yet to win in February.

We have put together an Opposition Guide to give you all the information you need to know about our 30th league opponent of the season.


Paul Tisdale made seven additions to his squad during his first transfer window in Hertfordshire, with two players returning to their parent club after the end of their loan spell.

INCOMINGS: Bailey Clements (Ipswich, loan), Zain Westbrooke (Bristol Rovers, loan), Laurie Walker (MK Dons), Michael Bostwick (Burton, loan), Christy Pym (Peterborough, loan), Ed Upson (Newport), Luke O’Neil (Kettering Town). 

OUTGOINGS: Max Melbourne (Lincoln City, return from loan), Joseph Anang (West Ham, return from loan). 


Luke Norris

January signalled one year since Norris joined the club and the 28-year-old celebrated the anniversary in style, netting four goals in six appearances.

Norris has taken to life under new manager Paul Tisdale and has rediscovered his goal-scoring form.

The forward is prolific from close range and is the man responsible for dispatching Boro's penalties.

Elliot List

List joined the club from Gillingham in 2019 at the age of 21, scoring twice in his debut season.

The 23-year-old is currently the Boro’s top scorer this season with 11 goals to his name.

He graduated from Crystal Palace’s academy before his move to Kent where he spent four years with the Gills.

Jake Reeves

Reeves has delivered more assists than anyone at the club this season, notching six to add to his two goals.

The 28-year-old will be a familiar face to the travelling City fans, having represented the club for three years.

Prior to his time in West Yorkshire, Reeves spent time with now-Premier League side Brentford after his spell at Tottenham came to an end.


Scott Cuthbert signed for Boro from Luton Town at the end of the 2017/18 season.

He won the club’s Player of the Year award for the 2018/19 campaign and the 34-year-old centre-back has made over 100 appearances for the club.

Cuthbert graduated from Celtic’s academy in his native country before he moved to south of the boarder to join Swindon Town.


Paul Tisdale took charge at Broadhall Way after Alex Revell was relieved of his duties.

Since then, Revell has rejoined the club as an academy coach and his successor has aided Stevenage’s climb up the table, moving from 22nd to 16th.

Tisdale previously earned promotion from Sky Bet League Two after a 12-year spell in charge of Exeter City,
