            Bradford vs Sutton United Prediction, Tips & Stats

            Bradford City will be aiming to record their third successive league victory when they host Sutton United at Valley Parade on Saturday afternoon.

            After a first half of their campaign, Bradford currently find themselves sitting in 13th place in the League Two table, having gained 43 points from their 32 league games. The playoffs are still a possibility for Graham Alexander’s side who are just four points off 7th position.

            The Bantams come into this week’s game on the back of an impressive run of form which has seen them record successive league victories without conceding a single goal. Bradford recorded an impressive 1-0 victory over promotion-chasing Wrexham and managed to follow this up with a convincing victory over MK Dons last time out.

            Despite controlling just 28% of the game's possession, Bradford recorded a 4-0 victory over the Dons thanks to first half goals from Matthew Platt and Calum Kavanaugh and second half goals from Andy Cook and Clarke Odour.

            Following a disastrous opening to their campaign, Sutton United currently find themselves sitting at the bottom of League Two, having gained just 22 points from their 32 league games so far this campaign. Sutton are currently seven points adrift of safety having played one more game than the teams around them.

            The U’s come into this game on the back of a dreadful run of form which has seen Matt Gray’s side go ten games without a win. A lack of goals has been Suttons downfall in recent weeks as they have failed to score more than one goal in all of their last six games.

            Sutton were narrowly defeated 1-0 by Morecambe and were beaten in similar fashion last time out as they were defeated 2-1 by Wrexham. Sutton thought that they had earned a precious point thanks to a Charlie Lakin equaliser however an 85th minute goal from Elliot Lee condemned the U’s to yet another loss.

            The fixture of Bradford vs Sutton United is a relatively new one, with the two sides having first met in the 2021/22 League Two campaign. In total, the two sides have met on 5 occasions, with Bradford having won 3, there being one draw and Sutton having won just one.

            It was Sutton who recorded a shock victory when these two sides met earlier on in the season in the reverse fixture. Goals from Josh Coley and Harry Beautyman were enough to secure all three points for the U’s despite a reply from Andy Cook.

            Unsurprisingly, given the respective form of these two sides heading into this game, it is Bradford who are heavily favoured at the bookies and are currently priced @ ⅗, whilst a surprise away win for Sutton is priced @ 17/4 and a draw is @ 14/5.

            We are backing Bradford to win and Andy Cook to score @ 7/4 because of the impressive form that Bradford and Andy Cook personally have coming into this weekend's game. Cook has netted 3 goals in his last six appearances and scored in the Bantams’ last two games.

            Bradford Team News

            Bradford have not reported any new injury concerns ahead of this week's matchup. Graham Alexander is unlikely to make any changes to the side which defeated MK Dons last time out, with Andy Cook leading the Bantams attacking line and Richard Smallwood controlling the midfield.

            It is yet to be seen whether Matt Gray will start with pone or two strickers as he has switched between these two formations in recent weeks. Fulham loanee Oliver Sanderson is likely to start in an attacking role.
