Bradford vs Rochdale – Predictions, Odds, & Best Betting Tips

Bradford are back to winning ways and the team registered a 3-2 success over Salford City to move up to 5th place in the league table. Rochdale remain in the bottom two spots even after the 1-1 draw with Newport.

Win for Bradford

Bradford are hoping to register a second consecutive home success over Rochdale, who have only managed four wins so far this season. In the 12 away matches, the relegation-threatened outfit have been able to pick up only two wins. This terrible run of form is likely to be felt even in this game with Bradford find the momentum at a perfect time. Mark Hughes will be delighted to have witnessed back-to-back wins for the team, who will be looking to make the most of a string of home games until the end of January.

Total goals under 2.5

Salford have been a team with a lot of momentum and they tested Bradford quite well in the recent game. In away matches, Rochdale might have only managed nine points but they have been quite decent in many of the defensive displays apart from being thrashed by Doncaster a few weeks ago.

Both teams to score – no

Rochdale might be struggling at the bottom end of the table but they have been able to rediscover the offensive touch with the team failing to get a goal only once in the last five games. Bradford have managed just one clean sheet in five, but they are likely to be quite hard to beat.

Preview and Team News for the Bradford vs Rochdale Game

Bradford

Bradford have now managed back-to-back victories that have pushed them firmly into the play-off positions. Mark Hughes will be a much relieved man after watching his team overcome a sequence of four consecutive losses in all competitions. However, Bradford have not put together three consecutive wins since September. Jamie Walker remains the injury problem in the Bradford line-up due to a knee problem.

Rochdale

Rochdale manager Jim Bentley has seen his team struggled with the relegation fears through the campaign, but the unbeaten streak in the last two matches has provided some sense of optimism within the club. In the seven games, Bentley has only managed one victory against this opponent, but he has a fully fit squad coming into the match.
