Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Newport County and Bradford City face each other at Rodney Parade in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. The Exiles are on a three-game winless run in League Two, but their display in a 1-1 draw with Grimsby was promising. Barring any fresh injury worries, boss Graham Coughlan is unlikely to make changes to the team that shared the spoils with Paul Hurst’s troops in midweek.
The Bantams, on the other hand, have been in a fine form of late, with the team winning three of their last four league matches. Bradford are eager to climb to automatic promotion berth, and given Newport’s difficulties at the back, we predict that the visitors will emerge triumphant in Saturday’s showdown. The good news for the visitors is that midfielder Jamie Walker has overcome a knee injury.
Highlighted Player (James Clark ):
Born in Berlin, Germany, James Clark is an experienced defender who plays for Walsall in the League Two. After spending his youth career at Watford, Clark played for the likes of Oxford United, Oxford City, Salisbury City, Woking, and Bristol Rovers before joining Walsall on a two-year deal.
The defender, who wears the No. 5 jersey at Walsall, has a contract with the Saddlers which should expire in June 2021. His primary position is centre-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a right-back as well. His preferred foot is right. James Clark made his League Two debut with Walsall on August 3, 2019 in a 1-0 win over Northampton Town.
He scored his first goal for the Saddlers in the Northampton Town clash as well, helping the team pick up all three points from the PTS Academy Stadium clash. Clark scored his first professional goal during his spell with Bristol Rovers. He found the net in a 2-1 win over Wycombe at the start of the 2018/19 season.
