Bradford to Win
Promotion hopefuls Bradford dropped more points on the road on Saturday when they were held to a 0-0 draw at Newport, though the Bantams have been much more reliable at the Utilita Energy Stadium this season. Bradford have yet to taste defeat on home soil in League Two this term, taking an impressive 11 points from the 15 on offer overall and they can add to their tally with a win against a hot and cold Bristol Rovers side this weekend.
Both Teams to Score
Both teams to score has been a regular winning bet in fixtures at the Utilita Energy Stadium this season, with BTTS landed in four of Bradford’s five league tests there since the summer. Rovers meanwhile, have seen goals notched at both ends in three of their last four games in League Two and we’re tipping that pattern to continue when the Pirates visit Yorkshire on Saturday.
Andrew Cook to Score Anytime
Andrew Cook has been Bradford’s main source of goals this season and though the striker has been hitting the net in bursts, he has generally saved some of his best work for his appearances at the Utilita Energy Stadium. Four of Cook’s five League Two goals so far were registered at that venue and his knack for netting at home makes him an outstanding choice in the anytime goalscorer market this week.

Bradford Team News
Lee Angol, skipper Niall Canavan, Caolan Lavery and Theo Robinson all look like missing Bradford's game this weekend. City battled their way to a 0-0 draw at Newport in their last outing, though they were relatively fortunate to escape with a point after County mustered 15 attempts and hit the woodwork. The Bantams have so far failed to live up to their pre-season billing as potential title winners, though there is still plenty of time left to improve.
Bristol Rovers Team News
Sam Finley and Leon Clarke are both out injured for Rovers, while Anssi Jaakkola, Mark Hughes, Josh Grant and Alex Rodman are all considered doubtful. Alfie Kilgour is available again after his one-game suspension. Bristol Rovers thumped Carlisle 3-0 last weekend, recording their biggest victory of the campaign in the process.
