Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Bradford City and Sutton take on each other at Valley Parade in the League Two round 21. The Bantams do not seem to be at their sharpest, with the team failing to win the previous six league fixtures. Bradford City are on a five-game winless run at home ground, but Saturday’s clash could be the turning point for the home team.
Head coach Derek Adams should stick to the 4-3-3 formation, with Lee Anthony Angol as a centre-forward. Sutton, on the other hand, suffered a 3-2 loss at Newport on Tuesday evening. Considering that important Craig Eastmond is banned for the visitors, we are tempted to put our money on Bradford, who are desperate to return to winning ways in the League Two. It has to be noted that the two teams meet for the first time ever in the English fourth tier.
