Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Swindon Town will be looking to build on a 2-1 win over Plymouth Argyle when they take on Bradford City in what is expected to be a very exciting game. The League Two leaders aim to cement top position in the standings, but the game against the Bantams will be anything but a walk in the park for the home side.
Eoin Doyle, who has already netted 23 goals in the League Two this season, will be the man to watch in the home team. Bradford City, on the other hand, scored a late winner in their first game of the year, with the team beating Morecambe 1-0 at home ground. The Bantams are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but they are on a five-game winless run on the road. Despite their fine form, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of spoiling Swindon Town’s party at the County Ground.
