iBet: A tight game between Northampton and Bradford

Gareth Purnell

League Two Play Off Final, Wembley

Northampton V Bradford, kick off 1.30pm

Lay Northampton at 2.4 to one with Betfair

A tight game could be in prospect here. Northampton have been keeping things very tight of late and it’s seen them through to the play-off final. Their last eight games have produced just 12 goals – six for and six against, and they made the final care of two 1-0 wins against Cheltenham. That does admittedly contrast with Bradford’s success against Burton, which produced nine goals over two legs.

However, there was nothing remarkable about Bradford’s attack over the league season and their two league meetings with Northampton both ended 1-0 to Phil Parkinson’s side. If we treat this like an away game for both sides, then the signs are good for Bradford simply because Northampton, remarkably, were the second worst side in the division in the league away from home this season, despite finishing sixth, with only four wins from 23 games.

Bradford are also in better form, with only one defeat from their last eight and they do have a lot of big match experience from this season with wins over Aston Villa, Watford, Arsenal and Wigan to draw on.
