After being formed in 1903 and joining the league immediately in an attempt to introduce the round-ball game to an area dominated by rugby league, it was 55 years before Bradford's first encounter with Swindon, a 2-2 draw being played out at the County Ground.

In 1968/69, Bradford nearly put an end to the Town's run in the League Cup early on, when they took a two goal lead within the first eighteen minutes of the Second Round replay at Swindon. Goals from Jack Smith and a Don Rogers penalty sent the teams in level at half-time, before Smart and Noble put the game beyond doubt - a late consolation by City ending the scoring at 4-3, as the Town went on to Wembley.
