With a points tally of 54, the Bantams now sit 13th in the table and are 10 points adrift of the top six. As for their recent form, Bradford have shown no signs of improving, with just one win in their last 15 matches in all competitions, losing 11 and drawing three, Bradford have now conceded seven goals in their last three appearances. Along with their defensive issues, the Bantams have also only managed to find the net once in their last seven.

After 42 games this season, Portsmouth have won 19, drawn six and lost 17, scoring 54 and conceding 51.
