Bradford City (A) Play-Offs L1 - Preview - Season 22/23, Episode 49

It was pretty much sorted anyway, but United officially secured a play-off place on the final day as they ground out a point at bogey team Sutton United.

In this episode of The Brunton Bugle, the lads look back on the 1-1 draw at Gander Green Lane - there's some talk about filling in the Mellish-shaped gap in defence, the Patrick dilema and some of the best stewards we've had this season.

After that there's a look ahead to the big play-off clash on Sunday night as United travel to Bradford - we look at the Bantams' dangermen, the form of the two teams going into the game and a debate over Simmo's 4-3-3/3-5-2 conundrum.

There's also a news update, a quick Loan Watch review and a round-up of how Ex-Blues got in in the last week.
