Bradford City vs Stevenage FC: The Preview

Bradford City will travel to the Lamex Stadium to face Stevenage FC on Tuesday night with both sides looking for a win to clear them of the relegation places.

The Bantams arrive in poor form with only 5 points in their last five games. That has seen them slip from 6th to 12th in League 2. Manager Derek Adams is hoping that his players can wrestle this slump in form and begin the ascent back into a playoff spot.

 After a dominant performance against Harrogate on Saturday lunchtime where the Bantams dominated with 16 shots on target they eventually suffered a 2-0 loss to Yorkshire rivals Harrogate Town. The bantams were much the better team but failed to capitalise on that dominance.    

Stevenage also played on Saturday at 3PM where they came down from being 2-0 down at halftime to Crawley Town to claim a 2-2 draw with a last minute goal from defender Scott Cumbert. Paul Tisdale’s side are on a good run of form with 8 points from their last five games.

The head to head record between both sides indicates Bradford are the favourites for tomorrow’s game with 5 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses in their last nine previous meetings with Stevenage. The home side last beat Bradford in 2014 where they beat the Bantams 3-2 at Valley Parade.

The last time both sides played each other was at the beginning of the season where Bradford stormed to a dominant 4-1 win in front of a boisterous Valley Parade. Andy Cook was the pick of the players as he scored a hat trick alongside a goal from Niall Canavan.

The odds for tomorrow’s night games are 7/5 for a Stevenage FC win, 59/25 for a draw and 23/10 for a Bradford City win ( Odds are subject to change.

The game can be watched on Bradford’s city streaming service iFollow Bantams for £10 with kick-off at 7:45PM. All proceeds will be going to Bradford City AFC. The commentary will be done by BBC Radio Leeds presenter Jamie Raynor.
