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

Wimbledon step into the game after only muster being a goalless draw with Crewe Alexandra during the weekend. Bradford’s winning sequence of two matches came to a shocking halt with the 2-1 home loss against strugglers Rochdale.

Victory for Wimbledon

Bradford appeared to be on the cusp of a brilliant run of form with back-to-back victories but the loss against Rochdale is likely to bring the team back to square one. Wimbledon have had additional days rest to prepare for this match and this will significantly way in the favour of the home team. Even though Wimbledon’s home record is not the greatest, Bradford are coming on the back of consecutive away losses.

Total goals under 2.5

A four goal thriller played out in the reverse fixture between the two teams back in September. Bradford are defensively all over the place with the team shipping 11 goals in the last six matches. Mark Hughes’ team are among the lowest in the league on this front. Even then, Wimbledon and Bradford have not been in good nick to enjoy too many chances in front of goal.

Both teams to score – no

There have been no goals from Bradford in the last three away matches. Even though Hughes has witnessed a decent amount of goals, it has largely been done to the returns at the University of Bradford Stadium. On the road, it can be a little tricky to back Bradford to score goals.

Wimbledon vs Bradford: Match Preview and Team News

Wimbledon

Wimbledon coach Johnnie Jackson comes into the fixture still struggling for results. The team has only picked up one win in the last five games. However, it can be quite a challenge for Wimbledon to overcome their recent struggles in the final third to pick up points in the same. There are no injury problems for Wimbledon ahead of this game.

Johnnie Jackson Updates:

Wimbledon boss Johnnie Jackson expects the new January signings to feature in the upcoming match against the Bantams. Ali Al-Hamadi, Armani Little, and Sam Pearson have all been picked up by Wimbledon to strengthen the squad in the January window. A good news for Wimbledon will be the potential return of Alex Woodyard, who has been training with the squad after being unavailable for the match against Crewe. Jackson believes that Wimbledon still have unfinished business after the draw against Bradford in the reverse fixture.

Bradford

Bradford slipped to a horrendous midweek loss against Rochdale which is likely to have implications on the upcoming few weeks as well. Bradford will be playing away from home in three out of the next four games. This is likely to worry manager Mark Hughes, who has particularly not done well against Wimbledon in the past. The only injury problem in this squad for the visitors would be Jamie Walker, who remains out with a knee problem.

Mark Hughes Updates:

Mark Hughes is confident that Bradford will be able to come up with a reaction to the loss against Rochdale. Bantams are expected to play a very direct style, as Hughes has hinted that it was more effective in the games against Salford and Harrogate. The process of guessing the upcoming line-up will be the key priority for Hughes, as Wimbledon have been going through several formations of late.
