Wimbledon v Bradford - Saturday 15:00
Bradford were pushed out of the top three by dint of Bolton’s televised win at Bury on Monday night, and as the League promotion race begins to heat up, it might just shift the focus enough to turn them into a more beatable proposition in the coming weeks. A 13-match unbeaten start was nice, but the table now brings home the reality: too many draws are costly.
The Bantams are now three matches without a win. That’s no big issue in itself but reports from the 3-3 draw with Sheffield United last weekend are rather misleading. Amid the mayhem, it no doubt seemed like a ding-dong, end-to-end encounter to the naked eye but the cold reality of the shot count suggested it was distinctly one-sided.
Bradford scored their three goals from just three shots on target and only six attempts of any kind. United registered three times as many efforts on both counts. Over the past three matches, which includes the 1-0 defeat at Oxford and the 1-1 draw at home to Southend, they’ve mustered just five shots on target and conceded 22.
Wimbledon were dominant in their 1-0 win at Peterborough last weekend - "the most one-sided game I’ve ever been involved in," said Neal Ardley. They’ve suffered defeat just once in 14 matches now, taking 18 points from the last available 24. Back the Draw/Wimbledon half time/full time at 6/1 and Wimbledon to win to nil at 4/1. Both bets reflect how they’ll probably go about this.£10 Free Credit and a £500 Deposit Bonus
