Our prediction for this League 2 match:
All eyes will be on JobServe Community Stadium when Colchester United and Bradford City face each other in the League Two derby. The U’s aim to build on a 2-1 win over Macclesfield Town Callum Harriott scored his second goal of the season. The Guyana international is likely to keep his place in the starting XI, and, no doubt, the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
You should bear in mind that Colchester United are undefeated in the last 13 league fixtures. The Bantams, on the other hand, dropped a two-goal advantage in a 2-2 draw with Scunthorpe United. Bradford City extended their winless run in the League Two to three games, and given their anything but good away record, we believe that home win should be considered. In their last meeting at JobServe Community Stadium Colchester United defeated Bradford City 2-0.

Bradford City maintain rivalries with Leeds United and Huddersfield Town, with the teams facing each other in the West Yorkshire derby.

Bradford City did remarkably well to win the FA Cup in 1911, with the team beating Newcastle United in the final.
