Following on from this weekend’s triumph over the (formerly) undefeated league leaders Chorley FC, Bradford face off against old foes Darlington FC on Tuesday at the Horsfall Stadium.
Having first met in the FA Cup in February of 1911, Bradford and Darlington faced each other another 43 times during Avenues days in the football league. The two sides matched up as equals over that time, with 18 wins apiece and 8 draws.
Recent history however has been somewhat more one sided, with Darlington winning 4 of the last 5 games. With Avenue notching the most recent victory over Darlington in this year’s FA Cup, the Quakers are sure to be out for revenge. But with current league standings, will Bowers men leave them quaking in their boots?
