Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Salford City and Bradford City square off against each other at Peninsula Stadium on day 13 of the new League Two campaign. Salford City failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Bolton, but is well known that they produce much better displays at home than on the travels. The Lions are undefeated at home ground in the 2020/21 season, and it is no wonder bookies see them as favourites to win Saturday’s football match.
The start of the season has been a mixed bag for the Bantams, who sit in the 16th place in the standings ahead of the trip to Salford. Bradford City are not regarded as good travellers, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the Lions. In their last meeting at Peninsula Stadium Salford City defeated Bradford City 2-0.
Highlighted Player (Richie Towell):
Richie Towell is a professional footballer who was born in Dublin, Ireland on July 17, 1991. After starting his youth career at Crumlin United, Towell was spotted by Celtic scouts in 2007, and he decided to join the famous Scottish outfit.
However, he made only one appearance for the Hoops at senior level, coming as a substitute for Jos Hooiveld in a 2-2 draw with Inverness in November 2010. Ritchie Towell played for the likes of Hibernian (loan), Dundalk, Brighton, and Rotherham United (loan) as well before signing a deal with his current club Salford City.
The Salford City midfielder has nine caps with the Republic of Ireland U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up with the senior team. His primary position is central midfield, but he is used as an attacking midfielder as well. Richie Towell has two Irish Premier League trophies with Dundalk (2013, 2014).
