History of the Bradford City v Barnet fixture

Barnet face a trip to Bradford City at Coral Windows Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to break their duck against the hosts. While the majority of previous matches have ended up drawn, a win has yet to be registered by Bees.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in November 2008, when they fought out a thrilling high-scoring 3 - 3 draw in a League Two match.
