Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Holker Street will host Saturday’s League Two fixture between Barrow and Bradford City. Barrow have been scoring goals for fun of late, and they will be looking to build on a thrilling 4-2 win over Mansfield when they take on the Bantams on Matchday 10. The newcomers have been showing signs of improvement of late, and they should take advantage of Bradford City’s current form.
The Bantams head into the match following back-to-back defeats to Newport and Bolton, and seeing that they have been struggling in front of goal of late, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home team. A man to watch in the home team will be pacey full-back Josh Kay, who scored a brace in the midweek fixture. This will be first meeting between Barrow and Bradford City in the English fourth tier.
