Blackburn Rovers vs Bradford City: Preview and Predictions

Blackburn Rovers vs Bradford City
England – League One
Date: Thursday, 29 March 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Ewood Park (Blackburn).

Blackburn Rovers will have the chance to continue their push for the Championship football on Thursday evening when Ewood Park is set to play host to Bradford City in one of two league outings for the day. The Riversiders have been enjoying a stellar form of late with five wins and a draw in last six league affairs.

Such an impressive streak has launched Tony Mowbray’s men into the contest for the direct promotion at the end of the regular season. The Rovers have the destiny in their own hands given they are now just two points away from leaders Shrewsbury Town with a single game in hand on the Blues, and a single point below Wigan Athletic in second with two games in hand on the Tics.

The Riversiders have been thriving in the final third recently with eight goals scored in last three matches. Adam Armstrong has proven out to be a fantastic addition to Mobwray’s side since joining from Bolton Wanderers this January. The 20-year-old striker has notched seven goals in last seven appearances for Blackburn and he is our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer pick here.

As for Bradford City, they have been nowhere near as efficient as their counterparts lately. The Bantams got out of the contest for the promotional playoffs after losing three on the bounce without scoring a single goal along the way. The new manager Simon Grayson has thus failed to shift team’s fortunes around since taking charge recently.

Blackburn Rovers vs Bradford City: Head-to-head

The head to head stats also speak in Blackburn’s favour.

The Riversiders have won 7, drawn 2 and lost just 1 of 10 home clashes with Bradford City.

Blackburn Rovers have won three and drawn one of last four league matches against the Bantams.

Blackburn Rovers vs Bradford City: Prediction

Both the H2H trend and the current form suggest a one-sided affair on Thursday at Ewood Park and we’d really be surprised to see anything but a commanding victory for the locals here.

Apart from the home win, you can try with either Armstrong to score anytime or Blackburn to keep a clean sheet. Both bets have value and the choice is all yours.
