BRADFORD striker Danny Rowe hopes to put another dent in his mate Ian Evatt’s season by wrecking his unbeaten run.

The Blackpool-born striker helped Oldham Athletic to a win at the UniBol back in October before heading over the Pennines in January.

Sixth-placed Wanderers and 10th-placed Bradford are League Two’s in-form sides, with winning runs of six and five games respectively. One of the streaks must come to an end on Saturday – but Rowe is not surprised that Evatt has got Bolton going in the right direction after a slow start to the season.

“It’s a great game to be involved in. Everyone will look forward to it,” said the former AFC Fylde frontman. “It’s going to be a test.

“It will be a good football game because they want to play.

“I know the manager really well personally and from playing against his teams. He wants to play football.

“I played against him for Oldham earlier in the season and we actually won. But they were better for large periods of the game.

“Knowing him and how his teams play, he hadn’t been there that long at the time and they hadn’t really clicked. But you could see what he was wanting to do – and now he’s doing it.

“Before there, he was at Barrow and did a great job. It was pretty similar. Now he’s gone to a bigger club and he’s doing the same sort of thing.

“It’s great for us. We take it game by game, but we want to keep our run going.

“It’s probably the biggest test since I’ve been at the club and a challenge you look forward to.”

Bradford have embarked on a similar run to Bolton, with the two clubs placed 19th and 21st at the start of February and looking over their shoulders at the bottom two. Rowe says safety is still the number one priority for the Bantams.

“If you’re winning games, you know it’s going to get better.

“First thing is to make sure we’re safe. It’s just a case of keep going and seeing where we get to.”
