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

Gillingham secured a place in the third round of the FA Cup after a 3-2 success over Dagenham & Redbridge in the replay action a few days ago. The last league encounter, however, saw Gillingham suffer a 3-0 loss against Salford. Bradford have suffered three consecutive defeats following the 3-0 loss against Leyton Orient in the recent match.

Draw

The league form of Gillingham has been extremely poor. The relegation strugglers have not managed a victory in the league over the last nine matches. Such teams tend to do well in the cup competitions and it is the case with Gillingham reaching the third round of the FA Cup. Bradford have had a full week to prepare for this game. They are trying to overcome a three-game losing sequence. A draw would be an appropriate result considering Bradford’s recent poor form.

Total goals under 2.5

There have been under 2.5 goals in eight out of the last nine league encounters for Gillingham. In fact, the recent loss to Salford City is the only league encounter involving Gillingham to produce over 2.5 goals since the middle of August. Bradford have only come up with one goal in the last three matches. They may not be a great choice to back four goals in this game.

Both teams to score – yes

Gillingham find themselves in relegation trouble largely due to their incompetence in the final third of the pitch. Even at home, Gillingham have only come up with four goals all season-long. Bradford have only picked up one goal in the recent three matches.

Gillingham vs Bradford: Match Preview and Team News

Gillingham

Gillingham remain in a desperate state for the victories. The team are just one point above the bottom. Manager Neil Harris will be hopeful that the recent run of avoiding a defeat in three out of the last four games continue for the team. The FA Cup success over Dagenham & Redbridge could serve as a motivation, although Gillingham have to deal with lower energy levels going into the upcoming game.

Bradford

Bradford have had the luxury of preparing for the upcoming game against Gillingham throughout the entire week. This is particularly useful for Mark Hughes, who has seen his team lost three consecutive games in all competitions. Bradford, though, have come up against very difficult opponents in this run. Jamie Walker has been ruled out of the game due to a knee injury.
