            Bradford vs Swindon Preview, Tips & Stats

            Valley Parade is the venue for an exciting League Two matchup as Bradford City are set to host high-flying Swindon Town on Saturday afternoon in a game which kicks off at 3:00.

            After a mixed start to their campaign, Bradford currently find themselves in 14th place in the League Two table on 13 points. This comes following three wins, four draws and three defeats from their opening ten league outings.

            Bradford featured in midweek League Two action as they travelled to Merseyside to take on Tranmere Rovers. An 83rd-minute strike from Kieron Morris was enough to secure the points for Tranmere after Regan Hendry had seen his earlier effort cancelled out by Andy Cook.

            Swindon remain undefeated so far this campaign and currently find themselves in 3rd place in the league on 19 points. However, the Robins have a game in hand over the sides above them and will find themselves at the top of the league if they are to win these games.

            Michael Flynn’s side have the best goalscoring record in the league and the Robin’s attack have proven to be clinical in front of the net so far this season. In particular, Jake Young has been impressive and he is currently leading the league in scoring, having netted nine goals in Swindon’s ten league outings.

            In their last league outing, Swindon travelled to Meadow Lane to take on table-topping Notts County. Goals courtesy of David McGoldrick, Macaulay Langstaff and Dan Crowley completed a dominant first-half display for the Magpies, with Swindon substitute Tyrese Shade pulling one back early in the second half as the game finished 3-1.

            The fixture of Bradford vs Swindon has a long and storied history, with the sides first meeting in 1958. In total, the two sides have met 44 times in a competitive setting, with Swindon winning 17, there being 14 draws and Bradford winning on 13 occasions.

            Swindon came out on top of a tight game when these sides last met in the league last year. Jonny Williams scored the only goal of the game in the 82nd minute as the loss dented Bradford’s hopes of automatic promotion.

            These sides are closely matched at the bookies, however it is Bradford who are narrowly favoured ahead and are currently priced @ 11/8, whilst an away win for Swindon is priced @ 7/4 and a draw is @ 12/5.

            We are backing Jake Young to score first as he has started this campaign in a rich vein of form and we believe that he may be able to exploit a vulnerable Bradford defence. Young has averaged 1.1 goals per 90 mins so far this season.

            Bradford Injury News

            Defender Sam Stubbs and striker Tyler Smith, who have both been struggling with minor injuries, are both back in training and are expected to be available for the match. This is a major boost for manager Mark Hughes, who will be looking to get his team back to winning ways after two consecutive defeats.

            Other than Smallwood, Stubbs, and Smith, all of Bradford's other players are fit and available for selection. This gives Hughes a number of options to choose from when he names his starting lineup for the match against Harrogate.

            Swindon Team News

            Defender Reece Devine is still out with a long-term hamstring injury, while midfielder Tom Clayton is also sidelined with a knee problem. Striker Tyrese Shade is also doubtful after picking up a knock in training.
