Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After sharing the spoils with Tranmere in their last league match, Colchester United will be looking to return to winning ways in the League Two when they take on Bradford City at Colchester Community Stadium. The U’s aim to put an end to their six-match winless run, but bookies see them as underdogs in Saturday’s clash for a reason.
The Bantams, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their five-match winless run in the English fourth tier. Bradford City aim to keep their playoffs hopes alive, but given their anything but brilliant away record, we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. The two teams shared the spoils in the previous two encounters in the League Two, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on draw.
