Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Northern Commercials Stadium will host Tuesday’s football game between Bradford City and Stevenage. The Bantams have been struggling to find their best form of late, with the team failing to win the previous eight league fixtures, but they are still in the race for a place in the play-offs. Bradford City are eager to return to winning ways in the League Two, and they will not have a better chance than this to do so as they play host to Stevenage at their Northern Commercials Stadium.
The Boro, on the other hand, are on a four-match losing run in the league ahead of the trip to West Yorkshire. Considering that a win over the rock-bottom side will see the Bantams climb to the top seven in the League Two standings, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the hosts.
Highlighted Player (Hope Akpan):
Born in Liverpool, England, on August 14, 1991, Hope Akpan is a professional footballer who plays for Bradford City. Akpan is a product of Everton football academy, but he did not see any game action for the Toffees in the Premier League.
After ending his loan spell with Hull City, Hope Akpan moved to Crawley Town in 2011, where he scored five goals in 47 appearances in the league. The experienced midfielder played for the likes of Reading, Blackburn Rovers, and Burton Albion before signing a deal with Bradford City in 2018. Hope Akpan represents Nigerian at the international level as his parents are Nigerian.
He made his debut with the Super Eagles on October 14, 2014, in the African Cup of Nations qualifiers. His primary position is a central midfielder, but he is used as both defensive and right midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 21 shirt at Bradford City.
Highlighted Team (Stevenage):
Based in Hertfordshire, England, Stevenage Borough are a professional club that compete in the League Two. The Boro are well known for their red and white home hit, while dark blue is the dominant colour of their away kit. Stevenage play their home games at Broadhall Way, the stadium which can hold up to 6,722 spectators and they were founded in 1976.
The Boro have won FA Trophy on two occasions (2006/07, 2008/09), with the team clinching the Herts Senior Cup title in the 2008/09 season thanks to a 2-1 win over Cheshunt. Luton are considered one of the club’s biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks in matches between the two sides.
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.
