              Bradford vs. Carlisle Prediction, Tips & Stats

              The League Two play-offs kick off this weekend as Bradford City face Carlisle United at Valley Parade.

              Bradford City ended their League Two campaign in 6th place with seventy-six points.

              Ultimately Bradford's season was a disappointment with The Bantams expected by most to contest for the title coming into the campaign, but Mark Hughes' side never came close to even challenging for automatic promotion having spent the lion's share of the season in and around the play-off places.

              There's still time for them to fulfil their potential, though, as a successful play-off campaign will write off any underperformance in the regular season as they look to return to League One after four straight seasons in England fourth tier.

              They enter this game in poor form overall, though, having won just one of their last five matches.

              Bradford drew 1-1 with Champions Leyton Orient on the final day of the season but with their opponents having nothing to play for the result isn't particularly impressive.

              It's quite concerning for Hughes' side that they're coming into a crucial portion of the season with little momentum on their side, but that can apply aptly to their opponents too so they're not disadvantaged in that regard.

              They've only lost one of their last ten games at home so they should avoid defeat here.

              Carlisle United ended their League Two season in 5th place with seventy-six points.

              Carlisle have had an excellent campaign with very few people predicting them to come anywhere near the play-off positions, let alone finish inside the top seven.

              Their form has been up and down for the most part this season and they enter this game amidst a down period having won just one of their last five matches.

              They've only lost one of their last seven, in fairness, but with so few wins under their belt they don't have much momentum as they come into a do or die two legged tie.

              Their form away from home has been okay having taken five points from their last three games on the road, but they'll find it tough to win at Valley Parade given Bradford's strength at home.

              They can take confidence from the fact they went unbeaten against Bradford in the league this season having beaten them 1-0 at home before drawing 0-0 away from home.

              Both legs will likely be competitive with the bookmakers struggling to separate the two in the odds.

              For our Bradford vs. Carlisle prediction, we're going for a 1-0 win for the home side.
