Bobby Campbell will be present as Bradford City visit the DW Stadium to try and knock Wigan Athletic out of this season’s Capitol One Cup next Tuesday and it is reported that over 4,000 Bantams are traveling over from Yorkshire.

Latics and Bradford City have a history stretching as far back as 1978, our first ever year in the Football League. We have however only met once in any Cup and that was in the FA Cup 1st Round where we took our visitors to a replay before coming out 4-2 winners in 1983.

As already mentioned, the Bantams can smell blood and are coming to the DW Stadium in force looking for their team to cause an upset and progress to the last 16 of the Capital One Cup.

I think the crowd could certainly be a big one, especially as we don’t want to be outnumbered in our own ground, so if you can make it, please try to get down and pre-purchase your ticket ahead of the game next Tuesday.

There is another reason to get down to the Stadium, seeing as one of the all time Latics’ Legends is making a very rare appearance, not only guest of honour for the night but also hosting his own room in the hospitality section, for this night only.

Yes, the infamous Bobby Campbell will be coming down to promote his new book “Curry and Campbell”. This will certainly appeal to a certain age group and tickets are limited, albeit at £40, but it also includes meal and all the hospitality trimmings.

So in short, get yourself and as many of your mates as possible down for the game, for those that want a trip down memory lane, contact the club for details on the Bobby Campbell Room tickets.
