Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Leyton Orient will be aiming to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Harrogate when they take on Bradford City on day 5 of the new League Two campaign. The O’s have been having their ups and downs at the start of the season, and it is no wonder the odds for away win have been dropping. Harry Smith could drop to the bench after failing to convert a penalty in the defeat to Harrogate.
The Bantams, on the other hand, have been producing excellent displays in the League Two of late, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive league win. Bradford City look sharp in front of goal, and given Leyton’s display in Saturday’s loss, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the away side. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be experienced attacker Andy Cook, who looks unstoppable at the moment.
