Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in Bradford’s last eleven matches
  • The Bantams have drawn five of their nine games at Valley Parade
  • Colchester have kept just two clean sheets on the road in the league this season

Bradford In A Rut

Things have not quite gone to plan for Derek Adams since moving to Valley Parade in the summer, with Bradford lying in twelfth place in the table after a run of just one win in nine league games.

Staggeringly, six of those matches have ended as draws, so although City are not winning many games, they are proving very difficult to beat.

A large reason for their struggles in getting games over the line is a weak defence that has conceded in 22 of their 25 fixtures this season, but at the other end they score plenty too, failing to score in only six games.

Colchester Not Winning Enough

Colchester have only won two of their last seven matches in League Two, but away from home they have been reasonably strong this season.

Hayden Mullins’ side have only been beaten three times in eight matches on the road, conceding just ten goals in the process.

Both teams have scored in each of their last four matches, while they have not kept a clean sheet in their last seven Football League games.

Six of Bradford’s last eight matches have ended 1-1, and I predict a repeat scoreline this time. Both teams should score, given each side’s defensive frailties, but I do not think either will do enough to get the three points.
