Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Buoyed by a 3-0 win over Harrogate, Leyton Orient will be looking to climb to the playoffs berth when the take on Bradford City in yet another home fixture. Leyton did well to bounce back from back-to-back losses to Forest Green and Colchester, with centre-forward Danny Johnson producing his best performance of the season. The 27-year-old scored a hat-trick at the weekend, and, no doubt, he is going to make life difficult for Bradford City defenders as well.
The Bantams, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss at Salford City, and seeing that they are not regarded as good travellers, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of grabbing something from the midweek clash. Leyton are eyeing their first win over Bradford since 2008 when the two teams met in the FA Cup.
