Exeter vs Bradford Prediction and Analysis

The hosts have emerged as the team to beat this season in League Two, as they are undefeated since September across all competitions. With just 2 points behind league leaders Forest Green the side looks certain to play in the 3rd division next season.

Bradford on the other side have not had a shabby run of games either and are undefeated in their last 5 games, with just a loss in their preceding 9 fixtures. They occupy the 11th position currently and with 22 points to their tally they are just 4 points behind a spot in the playoffs.

Admiring the excellence of the hosts it is quite easy to underestimate the away team who have lost just once in their last 9 games and have avoided defeat in their last 4 games on the road. With the hosts getting off to a slow start to games more often than not, I have backed a first half Asian handicap in favour of the visitors.

The game is expected to be a closely fought one however it is unlikely Exeter fail to qualify as they are unbeaten at home since the mid of March in the league. Exeter are favourites to qualify to the 2nd round of this competition.
