Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Salford City and Bradford City square off against each other at Peninsula Stadium in a highly-anticipated League Two game. The Lions aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Northampton Town, and a triumph over Bradford should see them climb to automatic promotion places. Neil Wood is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated the Cobblers on Matchday 13.
The Bantams, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Stockport County. Since the visitors will go for a win in Saturday’s encounter as well, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Both Oliver and Songo’o are pushing for a start, with Pereira and Odusina likely to drop to the bench. You should know that in their last meeting in the English fourth tier Bradford City defeated Salford City 2-1.
Highlighted Player (Conor McAleny):
Conor McAleny is a product of Everton youth academy, joining the club from Merseyside in 2003 at the age of 11. Despite the fact that his main position is centre-forward, McAleny is used as both second striker and left winger as well. McAleny did spend his youth career at Goodison Park, but it has to be noted that he made no more than two appearances for the Toffees at senior level.
The English attacker, who was born in Whiston on August 12, 1992, made his first-team debut in a 1-0 Premier League loss to Arsenal on December, 2011. Conor McAleny played for the likes of Scunthorpe United, Brentford, Cardiff City, Charlton Athletic, Wigan Athletic and Oxford United before signing a deal with Fleetwood Town.
The right-footed striker spent the second half of the 2018/2019 season on loan at Kilmarnock, scoring 3 goals in 11 appearances for the club in the Scottish Premier League.
