Brentford travel to take on Bradford City at The Bradford & Bingley Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Bees will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 13 and win only 5 of the 22 games.
The last time the two teams met at Bradford City was back in April 1996, over five years ago, the Bantams carving out a narrow 2 - 1 victory in a League Division Two match.

Recent respective form guides
Bradford City's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Bantams have scored 7, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.
Brentford's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occassions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The Bees's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 7 goals for and 6 against.
Bradford City's 58 points from 42 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 12th position. Brentford are just outside the promotion places, in 4th, having taken 69 points from 41 games.
