          Bradford vs Wrexham Preview, Tips & Stats

          Wrexham will be aiming to continue their impressive return to the Football League as they are set to travel to Valley Parade to take on Bradford on Saturday afternoon.

          Phil Parkinson’s side currently find themselves in 5th place in the League Two table and are just three points adrift from the top of the table, which is currently being occupied by Stockport. In their 13 league games so far this campaign, Wrexham have recorded six wins, five draws and two defeats.

          Wrexham are currently unbeaten in their last four league outings, having recorded two wins and two draws from their last four league outings. 

          In their last league outing, Wrexham took all three points away from their game against Salford City in a highly entertaining game. Wrexham took the lead in the 20th minute through Paul Mullin, who scored from the penalty spot after Salford City's Alex Iacovitti had fouled Mullin in the box.

          Salford City equalised in the 35th minute through Conor McAleny, who finished well from close range after being set up by Brandon Thomas-Asante.Wrexham took the lead again in the 55th minute through Ollie Palmer, who headed home from a corner kick taken by Jordan Davies.

          Salford City equalised again in the 65th minute through Ryan Leak, who scored a long-range screamer. However, Wrexham had the last laugh as they scored the winning goal in the 85th minute through Jordan Davies, who finished well from close range after being set up by Ollie Palmer.

          After a mixed start to their campaign, Bradford currently find themselves hovering around the middle of the League Two table and are currently occupying the 11th spot in the table. In their 13 league games so far this season, the Bantams have amassed 19 points, following five wins, four draws and four defeats.

          The fixture of Bradford vs Wrexham has a long and storied history, with the sides having first met in 1927 in the then division three. In total, the two sides have met on 74 occasions, with Wrexham having 24, Bradford having won 34 and there having been 16 draws.

          These sides last met each other in last season’s League Cup, where Bradford progressed in the competition following penalty shootout.

          Unsurprisingly, given their recent form, it is Wrexham who come into this weekend’s matchup as favourites and are currently priced @ 13/10 to record a victory, whilst a home win for Bradford is priced @ 9/5 and a draw is @ 5/2.We are backing Wrexham to win both halves as they come into this game with high confidence.
