Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Bradford City will look to recover from the FA Cup loss to Wycombe when they face Barrow on Saturday afternoon. The Bantams have been struggling in the League Two of late as well, with the team losing to both MK Dons and Sutton in the last two league matches and it is no wonder the odds for away win have been dropping. To make things even worse for the home side, defender Matthew Platt has yet to overcome his injury.
Meanwhile, the Bluebirds aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Morecambe. Barrow have a chance to climb to the playoffs berth and we predict that they will take advantage of Bradford’s difficulties at the back. In their last encounter in the English fourth tier Barrow defeated Bradford City thanks to Josh Kay’s goal and we predict that history is going to repeat itself.

Saint Kitts and Nevis international Ces Poss is the player with most appearances (502) for the club, while former Northern Ireland attacker Bobby Campbell is sitting in the top position in the Bradford City all-time top goalscorers list.
