Tip Reasoning

The Premier League season resumes this weekend but further down the football pyramid, the action has already begun and this weekend represents a second opportunity for those sides who perhaps did not quite hit the ground running to build such momentum. For fans of Bradford City, that is exactly what they will be hoping to achieve but this Saturday they make the short trip to face off against a Grimsby Town side who accomplished exactly what they wanted from their opening day exploits.

Grimsby Town will be delighted with the way their season got underway as, even though they were on their travels, they managed to put three points on the board at the earliest opportunity. The hosts are not expected to accomplish much above a relegation scrap this term, so the fact that they were able to claim a victory over another of the sides who are expected to struggle so early in the season could prove to be a massive boost to their survival chances.

Making the short trip to Blundell Park is a Bradford City side who will be looking to improve on a performance which saw them fail to find the back of the net on the opening day. The visitors had plenty of attempts on goal but the fact that they managed to get just 13.64% of those attempts on target shows just where their improvements need to come from. If the visitors are to accomplish this improvement, then they should be pretty confident in their ability to get the three points, especially considering that they are undefeated in their last 12 meetings between the two sides.

The hosts have not exactly been renowned for their ability to find the back of the net on a regular basis in recent years and although they managed to score twice on the opening day, they have failed to find the back of the net in the previous three attempts against Bradford. When you also factor in just how wasteful the visitors were in their last outing, we think that this one could prove to be a bit of a dud. With this in mind, we think that backing there to be less than 2.5 goals scored represents the best chance of a decent return.
