Bradford City vs Gillingham
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 24 March 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Northern Commercials Stadium (Bradford).
The Bantams are just not pulling up any trees these weeks. A streak of three straight losses has seen Bradford City drop down to the 11th place in the League One standings significantly halting their push for the Championship football next term. Simon Grayson’s men are thus now seven points adrift of the promotional playoffs and they will be desperate to arrest the current slump in from on Saturday afternoon when the Gills come to v9sit Northern Commercials Stadium.
The visitors have been struggling for consistency throughout the entire season, but the surprising 1-4 win over Portsmouth last weekend at Fratton Park has allowed them break into the top half of the league ladder. The team led by Steve Lovell is now actually just a single point below their counterparts and an upset in West Yorkshire could see Gillingham in the promotional contest ahead of the final part of the season.
Gillingham have been pretty efficient in the final third lately and they have netted at least a single goal in all of last four away fixtures in the league. We could easily see this run extended on Saturday given that the Bantams have not kept a single clean sheet in last 19 matches across competitions. On the other hand, Bradford City have also not scored a single in last three losses to Plymouth Argyle, Wigan Athletic and Doncaster Rovers.
Bradford City vs Gillingham: Head-to-head
Gillingham lead the head to head tie by four wins ahead of their 28th encounter with the Bantams.
Three of last five H2H encounters have seen the BTTS pick “come in”.
Bradford City are winless in last six home matches against the Gills.
Bradford vs Gillingham: Prediction
The visitors head into this as the form favourites. Given that they haven’t lost a single of last six affairs at Northern Commercials Stadium, we just have to back draw or away win double chance at 1.75.
Punters who prefer safer options can go with Bradford City not to keep a clean sheet at 1.40.
