League cup giant killers Bradford City lie 9 points off the playoffs but with 2 games in hand over most of their rivals and they will still be harbouring hopes of a top 7 finish and a potential chance to see the hallowed Wembley turf twice in the same season.
They have won 50 percent of their league home games and have the second strongest home defence- only Northampton Town have conceded less at home. They beat the shots 2-0 at the EBB stadium although the current shots team are under new management and embroiled in a relegation dogfight.
Aldershot are 3 points clear of the drop zone but have played a game more than those placed beneath them in the standings. They have only lost once in their last 6 games Their new loan signing from West Ham, 19 year old Paul McCallum, could make his debut. His 4 goals in 9 for Wimbledon on a previous loan spell shows he’s a capable scorer in this division and could be just what the doctor ordered for Aldershot. Still unbeaten under Andy Scott whos managed a win and 2 draws the last being against league leaders Gillingham.
