Bradford City vs Wigan Athletic: Preview and Predictions

Bradford City vs Wigan Athletic
England – League One
Date: Wednesday, 14 March 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Northern Commercials Stadium (Bradford).

Bradford City and Wigan Athletic will face each other in the delayed match of 34th round of English League One. Home side is desperate to break their bad run, while the visitors want to stay in the direct promotion spot race.

The hosts are in a very bad streak of eight matches without a win in the League One, and in that period they managed to pick up only two points. This negative run saw them slipping down from the promotion playoff spots and they are now four points below the top-six zone. Simon Grayson’s side is having troubles in converting their chances into goals, while their defence is in the very bad shape. Bradford City are one of the weakest performers when it comes to playing in front of their fans, where they have suffered eight defeats. They need to start winning as soon as possible if they want to stay in the game for one of the playoff spots.

Wigan Athletic are currently sitting on the 3rd spot and they are three points behind Shrewsbury Town, however they have played two games less than their opponents. Away side is in a variable form lately and they managed to book only one win in the last five occasions. William Grigg and the lads are very efficient in this campaign, while their defence is the best in the league. They even managed to eliminate Manchester city from the FA Cup by keeping the clean sheet. Wigan Athletic suffered only three defeats at away pitches and they are one of the main contenders for going up at the end of the season.

Bradford City vs Wigan Athletic: Head-to-head

These two sides have been playing very tight head to head clashes and both sides managed to win twice, along with two more draws. Their latest clash was the only one where the crowd was able to see more than two goals.

Bradford City vs Wigan Athletic: Prediction

Although their head to head clashes are pretty tight, in this one we might expect to see an efficient display. We are going with Over 2.5 tip.
