Bradford vs Shrewsbury Prediction & Match Preview

Bradford vs Shrewsbury
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 29th January 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Valley Parade (Bradford).

True to the general character of the sport in the country, League One is providing value for every penny the fans have been spending. Especially the state of affairs at the lower end of the table has been nothing short of warfare, and blood-thirsty competition.

The Bantams decorate the second to the last spot in the table but is not a group to be taken granted for. In the recent weeks, they have been showing promise and grit, substantially at their home. The grim fate that awaits them at the end of the season has propelled their desire to claw back into the business end of the tournament.

The Shrews will have to be all set for an evening of hard work and sweat. One thing is for sure, their safe zone in the table is not something that would be constant, and the team will have to put in work to maintain that status.

  • Three of the last four wins belong to the Paraders.
  • The Blues failed to score a goal in the last three games, and in four of the last five.

  • Citizens have been unbeaten at this venue since 2011.
  • The last three ties at the Valley Parade had under 2.5 match-goals.

Bradford vs Shrewsbury Prediction

Games between these teams have predominantly seen very few goals. And this has been particularly true in the last several years. All Salop could manage in the last five h2h fixtures, was a total of one goal. They were shut off by the opposing defense in four of these five ties.

The last seven match-ups saw under 2.5 goals, and furthermore, these two teams jointly scored a sum of four goals in the last five meetings. The case has been true at this venue too. Since 2015, every game at the Valley Parade showed this same stat. I think we are in store for another low goal-scoring game.

The home advantage definitely tips the scale in the favor of Bantams. Also, they have been performing well in front of their home crowd in the last weeks. Moreover, h2h ties, that too, in the years stretching back to almost 2011 have shown domination by David Hopkin’s men. I expect them to avoid a loss at any cost.
