Bradford to Win
Following a double setback with defeats in league and cup to Leyton Orient and Lincoln City respectively, Bradford will be determined to get their campaign back on track this weekend and a home game against struggling Walsall should provide just the tonic. The Bantams have taken seven points from nine at home so far and they should be able to push for victory again against a Saddlers side that were beaten to nil in each of their first two away assignments of the season.
Over 2.5 Goals
Bradford have had a firm commitment to attacking football this season and as a result, over 2.5 goals were produced in four of their last five matches. City’s first two league tests at the Utilita Energy Stadium spawned 4.0 goals per 90 minutes and we’re tipping the Bantams’ forward-thinking under Derek Adams to deliver more excitement on Saturday.
Andrew Cook to Score Anytime
With four goals in his first five League Two appearances this season, Andrew Cook is Bradford’s leading marksman and it’s worth noting that three of his efforts so far were plundered at the Utilita Energy Stadium. Cook notched when Bradford last played and beat Walsall in February and after his lightning-quick start to the 2021/22 campaign, he looks an excellent option in the anytime goalscorer stakes again this week.
Bradford vs Walsall: Match Preview
New Bradford boss Derek Adams tasted defeat for the first time and then the second time quickly after over the past week, though City’s wobble is expected to be a temporary one. The Bantams were superb in their last outing at the Utilita Energy Stadium when they battered Stevenage 4-1 and another impressive showing this weekend should help to restore any of the confidence they lost from their successive losses.
Matty Taylor finally earned the first victory of his short managerial career at the sixth attempt last weekend when helped to masterminded a 1-0 win for Walsall over Stevenage. Conor Wilkinson scored the all-important goal after just five minutes and Taylor will have his fingers crossed that The Saddler’s duck-breaking triumph steadies the ship.
