FA Cup giantkillers Bradford City visit Whitby Town’s Turnbull Ground tonight (Tuesday).

The League One side set about knocking Premier League champions Chelsea out of the world’s oldest cup competition, on the way to a quarter-final appearance, last term.

Less than two years earlier, Phil Parkinson’s men reached the League Cup Final, beating Arsenal and Aston Villa on the way.

“This is a great chance for the local area to come and watch their club up against a team that will definitely be challenging for promotion to the Championship,” said Whitby’s Lee Bullock, a former City player.

Player-manager Darren Williams, another ex-Bantam, encouraged supporters to make the most of the opportunity to see what is anticipated to be a full-strength Bradford side at the Turnbull.

“Get down to the ground and see us compete against a very strong League One side- the giantkillers of last season,” he added.

This evening’s clash is a 7pm kick-off with admission £6 for adults, £3 senior citizens and £2 for under-18s.

Under-16s accompanied by a paying adult will be admitted free.

Season tickets will once again be on sale from the club shop. Prices start at £40.
