Bradford vs Shrewsbury Match Preview and Predictions

Bradford vs Shrewsbury-League 1 Predictions-12th April-2018

Bradford City vs Shrewsbury Town
England – League One
Date: Thursday, 12 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Northern Commercials Stadium (Bradford).

The Blues look to have lost the ground on the likes of Blackburn Rovers and Wigan Athletic in the battle for the direct promotion. They sit third, four points behind the Riversiders at the very top of the ladder and two behind the Tics who also have a game in hand. This is why the result on Thursday at Northern Commercials Stadium would be of a huge importance for Shrewsbury Town. Any other scenario but a victory moves them away from the contest for the top two spots at the end of the regular season.

Luckily for Paul Hurst, his men are now about to lock horns with the out-of-form Bradford City. The Bantams will come into this in poor spirits after conceding as many as five goals away at Blackpool on Saturday. It was the fifth loss in last six league outings for Simon Grayson’s squad. Furthermore, Bradford City failed to produce in the final third at all in these five defeats. Such a negative streak dropped them down to 12th place in the League One standings.

Now that the promotional playoffs look to be beyond the reach, the Bantams have nothing to play for in the remaining seven games of the season. Given their counterparts were much more consistent throughout the campaign, we have to see the Blues as favourites for the spoils here.

Bradford City vs Shrewsbury Town: Head-to-head

The sides have 8 wins apiece ahead of their 22nd meeting.

None of last three H2H games saw three or more goals.

The Bantams won two of last three encounters with Shrewsbury Town.

This includes as narrow 0-1 victory when the teams met at Montgomery Waters Meadow in this term of League One.

Bradford City vs Shrewsbury Town: Prediction

The Bantams were struggling badly for results in recent outings and it is really hard to skip the away win bet at the odds of 2.30 here.

Since the hosts failed to score a goal in five of last six League One affairs, we will alternatively go with the visitors to keep things quiet at the back at the odds of 2.62.
