Well after running around like headless chickens against Swindon, how will we do with the Championship's surprise package York?

I'd like to think that we could pull together and manage the win here, but it's going to take a full 80 minute performance and I worry that we haven't got one left in the tank

Be a tough game. Had this down as a loss (along with Toronto at home) but after Swinton I feel this is a must win. But again I don’t feel like we have it in us.

I'm quietly confident. We've an 100% record vs York at York and a 0% record vs York at Odsal. We're stronger than we were last time we played York but we've no consistency apart from we've brought our A game to teams above us recently and have been complacent vs teams below us.

We’re capable of getting a win but I fear we won’t. York seem to have the edge on us and I think that win at the beginning of the season last year was just a one off. That day we had a fair bit of luck too.

If we can't beat York then we obviously don't deserve to be Top 5 - and most likely won't be.

Well we're due a win over them. Closely matched teams but they've certainly got the beating of us. Even our win at their place at the beginning of last year was an undeserved victory IMO

Due to the way the fixtures work out, lose this and we can't make up the remaining points IMO Win and providing we don't lose to anyone we shouldn't, we should qualify for the top 5.

Hopefully another packed house and a cracking game

The draw last week looks like a really bad result looking at our run in. Really can’t see us getting a win at York. They are mentally stronger than us as proved over the last few games and that counts for a lot when it’s close. If we win I think it’s up there with the Toulouse result.

Heart says we will win, head says we won't.

The issue I have is which Bulls team will show up. If its the one we've seen most of the year (i.e. slow, lethargic in defence, five drives and a kick style) then we will have another miserable day.

However, if the Widnes/Toulouse team who are willing to mix it in defence and play with ball in hand then I think we win quite comfortably.

York have somehow managed to keep sneaking wins which worries me if its a close game. We need to come out firing all cylinders from the start as if we give them a head start they will just grind out the win.

I work in York, and having worked in partnership with the club on occasions have got to know some of the people behind the scenes. They are supremely confident about how the club is developing and are fully expecting to take this win and make the top 5.

They have an outstanding young coach, a team that has been built around an attractive style of play and I would be surprised to see them wipe the floor with us if we turn up with the wrong attitude on Sunday.






Don't think i'm biased...

Bradford have put on their twitter feed that the allocation given to them have all been sold but that you can still pay on the gate
