The hosts were expected to struggle for survival in this division before the season began, but they’ve been doing very well so far. Stanley won five, drew five and lost just two of twelve games so far which is enough for a sky-high seventh-place at the moment. The rock-solid defense is team’s strongest characteristic. John Coleman’s men were especially tough to break down in the most recent period. They were on a three-win streak before last weekend’s loss to Shrewsbury Town. Accy allowed just two goals in these four outings.

Accrington Stanley vs Bradford City: Head-to-head

It’s been six years since these two likes last came across each other in a league clash.

They did meet in both League Cup and FA Cup in the same season (2016/17).

Stanley advanced on both occasions, winning the League Cup tie on penalties (0-0 regular time) and the FA Cup meeting 1-2.

Four of last five head to head affairs saw goals at both ends.

Accrington Stanley vs Bradford City: Prediction

The Bantams have already made a change on the bench this season appointing David Hopkin as the new head coach in September. Whilst the Scottish manager did improve team’s defensive displays, the Bantams are still struggling to create at the other end.

They kept back-to-back clean sheets against Bristol Rovers and AFC Wimbledon, but returned to the old habits allowing two goals in a home defeat to Sunderland last weekend (1-2). They lost four on the bounce away from home before beating AFC Wimbledon in the previous fixture on the road.

Since the hosts are also a defensive-minded side, we’d be surprised to see goals galore when these two sides take on each other at Wham Stadium.

Accrington Stanley vs Bradford City: Bet Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.75 (3/4)
  • Accrington Stanley to keep a clean sheet @ 2.37 (11/8).
