Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Bradford City play host Stevenage at their Valley Parade on Saturday afternoon. The Bantams have yet to record a win in the 2020/21 League Two campaign, but they will not have a better chance than this to do so. It is well known that Bradford City have turned their Valley Parade into a real fortress, but keep in mind that defensive duo Anthony O’Connor – Paudie O’Connor is sidelined through suspension.
Anyhow, we predict that the hosts are going to find the net in Saturday’s clash as they looked sharp in front of goal in a 2-2 draw with Forest Green. The Boro, on the other hand, rolled over Oldham 3-0 at the weekend to climb to the 5th position in the standings. Given Stevenage’s attacking potential, punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on both teams to score.

In 2015 fighting broke out between rival fans near to the end of the clash at the Lamex. It has to be noted that Stevenage Borough were founded in 1976 after the bankruptcy of Stevenage Athletic.
