Matchday Guide | Bradford City (H)

3 May 2023

Crewe Alexandra will entertain Bradford City in their final home game of 2022-23, on Wednesday (7.45pm).

The Railwaymen will aim to extend their recent unbeaten record at Mornflake Stadium to six games, but it will be a tough task against Mark Hughes's promotion-chasers.

The Opposition

Bradford start the game seventh in League Two, needing just one point from their final two games to be sure of a Play-Off spot. Victory over Crewe would mean automatic promotion is still possible.

A super-consistent run from the Bantams in the second-half of the season has seen them lose just twice in their last 23 outings.

The Gaffer

Manchester United legend Mark Hughes has managed at the highest level with the likes of Manchester City, Blackburn, Fulham and the Welsh national side.

After almost four years out of the game, he took the Bantams job in February 2022 and is now looking for promotion in his first full season in charge at Valley Parade.

Fighting Talk

Lee Bell: "I’m sure the teams in and around Bradford will want a favour, but we have to concentrate on what we want to do, what we want to leave the crowd with, so we have lots of targets to still aim for."

Mark Hughes: "Everything is there for us, we just have to keep going. Keep on doing the right things and good things will happen for us. We enjoyed our win on Saturday, but now we will be working towards Wednesday."

Team news

Lee Bell will run the rule over the likes of Rio Adebisi, Tariq Uwakwe, Charlie Colkett and Charlie Finney, who are all carrying knows. Elliott Nevitt (toe) will miss the final two games.

Adam Clayton is fit and available for Bradford after missing six games through injury.

Head to Head

Crewe have beaten Bradford 36 times, but City have got the upper hand on 43 occasions. The clubs have shared 20 draws.


Adam Herczeg has been appointed as referee. Assistant referees are Adam Ricketts and Wayne Grunnill, while Simon Mather is fourth official.
