Bradford Game To Be Shown Free On BT

BT Sport are taking full advantage of the BBC's failure to show Bradford City live in the FA Cup once more by screening the game for free. BT Sport is usually only available to subscribers or BT Internet customers, but in a positive PR exercise they have opened the game up to everyone free of charge via their website. The BBC had already been criticised for failing to screen Bradford's fifth round win over Sunderland. It's great news for Reading fans who are not making the long trip to Bradford.

Giant-killers Bradford City have gripped football watching neutrals after putting out Chelsea and Sunderland in the last two rounds. For most people the result is a forgone conclusion with Bradford City firm favourites to put out the Royals and reach Wembley in the semi-finals. The game kicks off on Saturday 7 March at 12.45pm. The club are yet to confirm ticket details.
