Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Valley Parade will host Saturday’s football game between Bradford City and Hartlepool. The Bantams have been in a fine form of late, with the team beating all Doncaster, Gillingham, and Colchester, while sharing the spoils with Walsall and Newport. As always, a man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Andy Cook, who found the net against the Exiles, while Mark Hughes has no fresh selection worries.
The Pools, on the other hand, failed to win the previous seven league fixtures, with the team sitting in the danger zone, just above bottom two. Since Hartlepool have already suffered 11 defeats on the road this season, we predict that the playoffs-chasing hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match. As for the visiting side, experienced forward Nicky Featherstone is pushing for a start.
