Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After suffering three consecutive defeats in the League Two, Newport County will be looking to get back on course when they square off against Bradford City at Northern Commercials Stadium. The Exiles suffered a dip in form, with the team slipping down the standings week by week. Newport County did well to beat Non League side Maldon & Tiptree FC at the weekend, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Saturday’s league clash against Bradford City.
The Bantams are determined to return to the League One, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Exiles. Bradford City are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and you should know that they are eyeing their seventh home win of the season. A man to watch in the home side will be experienced attacker James Vaughan, who has netted six goals in the League Two so far this term.
Highlighted Team (Newport County):
Nicknamed the Exiles, Newport County are a Welsh club that welcome their rivals at Rodney Parade. Despite being based in Wales, the club compete in the English League Two.
