Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Newport County welcome Bradford City to their Rodney Parade in the League Two round 11. The Exiles quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Barrow, with the team rolling over Scunthorpe 3-0 in their last league match. Newport County aim to climb to the playoffs berth, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Bantams.
Bradford City, on the other hand, did well to beat Rochdale 2-0 in their last league match, with the team regaining their spot in top seven. However, home win should be considered as the Bantams are on a three-game losing run on the road. The attacking partnership of Telford and Baker-Richardson has been in a perfect working order of late, and the duo is likely to prove a handful for the Bradford City back-line. In their last meeting at the venue the Exiles defeated the Bantams 2-1.
