Date: Monday March 23rd 2015\r\nCompetition: Vanarama Conference North\r\nVenue: Horsfall Stadium, Bradford\r\nKick–off: 7:45pm\r\n\r\n48 hours removed from their 2-1 loss away to Stalybridge Celtic, Gloucester City make another long trip north to face Bradford Park Avenue in the rearranged fixture that was postponed just before kick off earlier in the season.\r\n\r\nThe club’s met on the opening day of the season, with a wildly entertaining 3-3 draw in front of the Tigers’ highest opening day crowd since 1999. Charlie Griffin and Billy Jones were the goalscorers that day.\r\n\r\nBradford have pulled away from the relegation battle in recent weeks whilst Gloucester have been pegged back and dragged further into it. A win for the Tigers will see them leapfrog Leamington into 17th place, 2 points clear of the trailing pack, with the Warwickshire side not playing until 24 hours later.\r\n\r\nThe City players will be looking to give the travelling fans something to cheer about and manager Tim Harris believes that he won’t need to motivate his players any more as they all know what is at stake and are raring to go.\r\n\r\nTeam news: Chris Knowles will be unavailable for the match due to prior commitments and Adam Connolly is likely to replace him in central midfield.\r\n\r\nNathan Modest will be available after missing out on selection against Stalybridge at the weekend.\r\n\r\nYou’ll be able to catch all of the action from Horsfall Stadium on Twitter (@GCAFCofficial) and Facebook (GCAFCofficial) from 7:30pm tomorrow evening.\r\n\r\nGloucester City’s media coverage is sponsored by Baylis Motors.
