Six coaches are fully booked for a visit to Bradford. Even though there has been some demand for a seventh, the club has said that six is our limit due to a lack of volunteers to steward the buses. The club are expecting upwards of 1,600 fans to travel to Valley Parade in what will be the highest away turnout since Charlton in 2016.

Wally has declared everybody fit for this Saturday. Scott Wagstaff is the only absentee, as he was ruled out for the rest of the season after the Luton match. Otherwise, everyone is fit, with Rod McDonald recovering from a knock to be in training this week.

ON THIS DAY – 1998. Our final home game of the season ended in a bizarre 6-2 defeat to Tottenham. Peter Fear scored twice to put us 2-1 up after half an hour, but with Ben Thatcher sent-off early into the second-half, we were unable to match a relegation-threatened Spurs side. Jurgen Klinsmann scored four as the North Londoners finished strongly, going above us in the Premier League table.
