Three points for Stockport

Stockport were able to bounce back quickly from the back-to-back losses in two different competitions. The success over Northampton not only provides three points but it also adds a significant psychological advantage to the team. Bradford have been very inconsistent for several weeks and the team comes on the back of just two wins in the last six league matches. Even though there are three points separating the two teams in the league table, this prediction expects a very close encounter.

Total goals under 2.5

Stockport continue to remain as one of the top teams in the league over the last few weeks. Only Walsall and Salford have registered more points than Stockport in the recent six matches. It may be very difficult for Bradford to stop the juggernaut from Stockport.

Both teams to score – no

Mark Hughes will be particularly disappointed about the offensive performances from his team so far this season.
