Pre Match Programme: Chorley FC

Bradford (Park Avenue) will face what is likely to be their sternest test of the season this Saturday when they host table-toppers Chorley.

The league leaders have been unassailable thus far, conceding just five goals in twelve National League North games and accumulating thirty points.

However, confidence will be coursing through the veins of Mark Bower’s men after they dismantled Nuneaton Borough in their last game.

Saturday’s opponents have an Emirates FA Cup first round tie to look forward to after advancing in the competition at the expense of Barrow last week. Although a clash with Doncaster Rovers is on the horizon, the Magpies will be returning their focus to league matters as they look to maintain their unbeaten record.
