Bradford City’s official Twitter account have confirmed that the Bantams have sold their initial allocation of 2,000 tickets for their clash with Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium on Saturday, with the club confirming they are hoping to be backed by over 3,000 supporters after releasing a second batch of tickets.
Stuart McCall’s side head to Lancashire on Saturday afternoon for a clash between two of League One’s promotion contenders. The Bantams will be boosted by a large away following, which could be set to grow following the release of more tickets.

Bradford enter the contest on the back of a disappointing defeat to Plymouth Argyle on Saturday, where McCall’s side failed to close the gap on Wigan, who currently sit second in the table.
Jake Jervis’ goal for Plymouth handed Bradford a 1-0 defeat at Valley Parade over the weekend, which has left the Bantams fourth in the League One table, six points adrift of Saturday’s opponents, Wigan, who also have a game in hand over their rivals.
Wigan were not in action over the weekend due to the international break, but Paul Cook’s side have not tasted defeat in League One in their last seven fixtures.
This is great news for Bradford heading to Wigan, as Saturday’s fixture could be one of the club’s most important this season.
It is a clash that McCall’s side cannot afford to lose, and a backing of over 2,000 supporters is great news for the Bantams.
McCall will be hoping to see his side bounce back from a humiliating defeat to Plymouth, but will acknowledge the size of the task at hand against Wigan.
Bradford fans… Let us know your thoughts!
