Match Preview: Altrincham

Bradford (Park Avenue) welcome former manager Lee Sinnott and his Altrincham side to the Horsfall Stadium on Saturday. (Kick off: 3.00pm)

The Avenue have won their last four league matches, which has seen them climb into eighth position. Also, Bradford are unbeaten at home since New Years’ Day. Most recently, John Deacey’s men have managed to find some form after a disappointing run in December. Since their last defeat against Gloucester City at the beginning of February, the Avenue have scored 12 goals and conceded one in four games. Their last performance saw the West Yorkshire outfit overcome a spirited Workington side; 1-0 at the Horsfall Stadium. Ahead of the fixture against Altrincham, John Deacey will assess the fitness of several players who picked up minor knocks in the win against the Reds.

Former manager Lee Sinnott returns to Bradford (Park Avenue) with his current side pushing for a playoff spot. Before kick off, the visitors are two places and four points ahead of their opponents. Meanwhile, the Robins will be looking to repeat their previous performance against Bradford on Saturday. Earlier in the season, Lee Sinnott’s side defeated the Avenue 3-1 at Moss Lane. However, in recent weeks, the away side have been able to stop a losing run. During February, Altrincham lost successive fixtures against Histon FC and Workington, but, are now unbeaten in their previous four matches, including back to back victories against Oxford City and Droylsden.
