Bradford City host Wimbledon this weekend, where they will look to end their poor run of form in League Two. Luckily, they know how to beat this week’s visitors, as they picked up a 1-0 win in the two clubs' most recent clash.
The Bantams’ form in recent weeks has significantly decreased, and they’ve now gone seven games without a victory in the league. Their most recent League Two game was a 2-0 away defeat to Swindon, who scored twice before the break.
After 29 matches, Bradford sits 18th in the table with 36 points. The side are actually rather solid defensively, as they boast a record of 1.34 goals conceded per game, but their issue lies in attack, where they score just 1.21, the fifth-lowest record in the division.
Wimbledon have had some really tough fixtures as of late, with their latest being against third-placed Mansfield. However, they picked up a huge 2-1 win in that game, as an early red card for the visitors helped them assert their dominance.
The Dons are currently placed ninth in the table, and they’re within touching distance of a spot in the playoff positions. The main reason for their success is their extremely solid backline, which has seen them concede just 34 goals this season, the joint-fourth-best record in the league. They’re also relatively dangerous in attack and score 1.57 goals on average.
Wimbledon should be confident that they can pick up three points here, with that huge win last weekend lifting their spirits.
Bradford will look to frustrate the visitors, but their lack of goals should cost them.
The final prediction is Bradford 0-2 Wimbledon.
