  • Both teams scored in 12 of Bradford’s last 13 games.
  • Bradford have not won a game within 90 minutes since October.

Buoyant start to 2022 for Barrow

While this game is nobody’s idea of an instant classic, it is an interesting game between two sides looking to move away from the lower echelons of the League Two table, both in comparably poor form.

The advantage Barrow have here is the fact that their manager, Mark Cooper, is unbeaten in eight of his nine personal H2Hs with Bradford (W5, D3), including all three clashes with opposite number Derek Adams (W1, D2).

Notably, there were goals at both ends in six of the last seven clashes between Cooper-managed sides and Bradford. Moreover, Barrow kept three consecutive clean sheets ahead of this, but it is questionable whether that run is sustainable for the hosts.

Bradford to play their part

Bradford have notoriously featured in some topsy-turvy affairs during this League Two campaign, no side saw both teams score in more league matches than Bradford’s 15 this term (71%), so another end-to-end encounter could ensue.

Another stat pointing to this being an exciting affair is Bradford’s comeback-ability – the visitors avoided defeat in six of their 11 league games when falling behind (W1, D5, L5) while failing to win four of their nine when taking a lead at any stage (W5, D3, L1).

All things considered, I predict that both teams will score as the hosts may just edge it out in a hard-fought 2-1 win. However, I think the W-D-W market is very risky, so BTTS could be the smart play in this battle in Barrow.
