‘Ridiculous’, ‘Doesn’t add up’ – Plenty of Bradford City fans react to latest club statement

Bradford City’s League Two game with Grimsby Town has finally been postponed, despite some confusion over exactly what has been happening.

The game has been lost due to a positive Covid-19 test for Jock Curran, a 19-year-old who has been in self-isolation after a one-game loan spell with Spalding United. His positive test meant the Mariners’ clash with Cheltenham Town was called off this weekend, with Grimsby Chairman Philip Day claiming they would also lose their upcoming match against Bradford.

The Grimsby Telegraph report that Bradford were not aware the game had been cancelled at first, with Day’s comments suggesting it was the case before speaking to his counterpart at Valley Parade. However, that has proven to be the case as both Blundell Park and the club’s Cheapside training ground both out of action as a precaution.

“Bradford City can confirm this weekend’s Sky Bet League Two trip to Grimsby Town has officially been postponed,” read the club statement. “The decision has been made following conversations between Grimsby and the EFL, after the Mariners returned a positive COVID-19 test last week.”

Stevenage also recently returned three positive Covid tests, but their game this weekend went ahead, ironically also against Bradford City. West Ham had positive tests last week but were able to play Wolves this weekend, winning 4-0. That has left this selection of fans scratching their heads as to what the rules actually are.
