You could be right on both counts there but if we can’t get more than 2k for a div 3 side we might as well pack in, 2300 for me which is still poor!

It beggars belief that Bradford got 16,000 on Saturday and they will likely bring less than 300 for this game. Cheap season tickets or not. We would probably take the same for a replay. Their can’t be a team with such disproportionate support between home/away support.

See what you’ve saying but it’s not a game they’re excited about as a lot of them think they will lose, bit like us having an away trophy tie at north ferriby and sitting bottom of the conference!

We would still probably take 100 nutters up there. Nutters meaning diehards not real nutters.

I think Disturbed Postie has it about right I would be very disappointed if we didn't get 2300 or a bit more this is a League One side we are playing regardless of their current league form.

The good news is that the RMT strike on SWT has been cancelled for this Saturday and as far as I can see Bradford is served by Grand Central who are not in dispute so at least there wont be any industrial action to impede travel to the game for either home or away fans.

I don’t know how cheap their season tickets are, probably guessing it works out about £8 a game which is excellent value for 3rd tier but if £20 a game that 16k turns into about 10k I reckon and the way they’re going could have been 7k if £20 a game!

Yes expecting a crowd of about 2,300-2,500. Would have been a few more if Bradford had been playing well and we had been top 6.
We also played them just 3 years ago. Pretty rubbish draw all round. Not if we win though.

Does anyone remember how many they brought down 3 years ago? Something tells me about 400?

I think that for the televised replay there was an attendance around the 3,000 mark so even allowing for tv coverage, we weren't a great attraction for 'em, but that I feel is the way that FA Cup attendances in general have gone over the last few years. The competition has lost much of its allure.

Just checked, 2,930 :- https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/34773427

That tells you that playing a conference side in the first round of the cup doesn’t excite them!
