Bradford vs Northampton Stats

As for the visitors, both teams scored in four of their last five on the road, while four of those saw more than two goals go in. Northampton have scored seven goals in their last five away matches and have conceded 11. Three of those matches (the last three) have seen at least three goals hit the net, while three also saw both teams score. In their last five at home, Bradford have scored 11 and have conceded six.

Bradford may have failed to get three points against Bury on New Years Day (their fourth consecutive draw) but they did maintain their unbeaten run and, based on the chances that they created, were unlucky not to win. On the other hand, Northampton were beaten by Sheffield United and, despite going down by just the one goal, the score-line definitely flattered them.

Goals in the last rounds comeback win over Fleetwood at Highbury Stadium came from Alex Gilliead and Shay McCartan. The Northern Irish striker has been particularly inspired as he also set up the first goal with a beautiful pass for Gilliead and backing him as the anytime goalscorer against the vulnerable defensive line of Northampton seems to be a wise call at the odds of 2.60.

Bradford City vs Northampton Town Match Preview

Northampton havent been exactly thriving of late either, but they generally look to have goals in them and so are expected to compete here. Having asserted themselves as one of the early pace-setters in this division, Bradford had made a name for themselves as a tough defensive side, however, in recent weeks, theyve slipped off a bit in that respect, particularly at home.

And considering that theyve conceded just twice in their last five, its easy to see them keeping this Northampton side (whove failed to score last time out) at bay. Against a team whove conceded seven goals in their last five, the visitors probably wont need to do too much to break through, so youd fancy, if they can keep things tight at the back, the win is certainly theirs for the taking.
