    Contacts/Directions:

    Horsfall Stadium
    Cemetery Road
    Bradford
    West Yorkshire
    BD6 2NG
    Telephone: 07912271498

    By Car
    Leave the M62 at Junction 26 and take the M606 towards Bradford. Just before the end of the M606 take the left hand slip road signposted Ring Road West A6177. At the top of the slip road you will reach a roundabout at which you take the second exit towards Halifax (A6036). You will pass Odsal Stadium on your left and at the next roundabout take the 3rd exit continuing on the A6036 towards Halifax. Horsfall Stadium is signposted from this roundabout. After one mile and immediately before the Childrens Nursery, turn a sharp left into Cemetery Road. The stadium entrance is down on the left. There is a car park at the stadium which is free, otherwise there is street parking available along Cemetery Road.

    By Train
    The nearest railway station to the Horsfall Stadium is Low Moor which is located on the Bradford Interchange to Halifax line. An hourly service is in operation each way along the line. Low Moor station is located 1.3 miles away from the Horsfall Stadium and it is a steady uphill walk to the ground, which will take around 30 minutes (but much less going back down after the match!). As you come out of the station turn left and proceed along New Works Road through the Industrial Estate. Continue past the Royal Pub on your left. On reaching the end of New Works Road, turn right and then immediately turn left onto Abb Scott Lane. On reaching a mini roundabout bear left continuing along Abb Scott Lane. Then take the second right into Cemetery Road. The entrance to the Horsfall Stadium is further up on the right, after the park.

    2-0. Job done, albiet 48 hours later than would have hoped.  At least they had a go tonight and didn't "park the bus". Four clean sheets in a row now.  One downside is we have to go there again this season.
    Funny how, on their forum, they spouted about the noise they made on Saturday. Where were they tonight?

    On the radio commentary most of the noise was coming from our loyal fans - drowned Barry out at times. Well done to them and great work by our excellent team. Onwards we go.

    Thought the game could have gone either way with both teams hitting the woodwork several times. The 1st goal looked like a deflected free-kick and the 2nd goal looked like an own goal. The luck was slightly on our side tonight.
    Lets not make a mess of this big chance we have of getting through to 1st round proper.
    Sorry to see the young Bradford idiots outside the ground looking for trouble- hope nobody got hurt .
    We are still not firing up front and Agnew looks a shadow of his former self. Hope he gets through it soon.

    Sickened on 2 counts tonight.

    Firstly, and obviously, the result. Ok, Harrogate were quicker and slicker. As you'd expect. But others have said it all with their comments on the chances and goals. Except that. for their first goal, the free kick should have initially been given to us according to our manager and several players. Don't think they're too enamoured with this particular official anyway. Let's hope we have more luck starting on Saturday.  Even a member of their forum stated they had "slightly more luck".  Others meanwhile thought their fans were noisier....(Pretty sure 1 in particular is a bit mutton jeff, And certainly dislikes Horsfall. Don't know why she? comes.

    Secondly, incidents off the field both during and after the game. Of which there are comments on their forum as would be expected. I expect some will be made aware of officially. Just let's say I'm extremely disappointed and disgusted having offered some defence previously.
    Profound apologies on behalf of our supporters to those Harrogate fans concerned. My main reason I felt I had to comment is hoping Harrogate Man can post elsewhere. No further comment from me on an open forum on this. Does the club no good.

    Didn't go but certainly sounds like we were lucky not to concede at least one goal. I'd like to know what people thought of our two young loan strikers (I think they both played a part). Do they look hopeful for the future? They both look very lightweight to me. It seems crazy to be 'complaining' with one defeat all season and 90 minutes away from Round One of the FA Cup, but the striker situation (or lack of it) does still worry me.

    We have a golden chance of reaching Round One this season...lets not 'do a Hastings'!

    Only 393 in attendance and no TV distractions with a sizeable contingent from us.
    I know of some Town fans who won't go there because of their hooligans, maybe some of their supporters are giving them a miss too. It is not something that has just occurred recently and their club seem to be turning a blind eye to it.
    I repeat....horrible place
