Doncaster v Bradford – Goal Shy Bantams To Struggle


FOOTBALL LEAGUE expert Ross Casey (@RossCasey24) takes a look at tonight's tussle between Doncaster and Bradford.

Doncaster v Bradford | Monday 19th March 2018, 19:45 | Sky Sports


Darren Ferguson's Doncaster side are absolute draw specialists at present. They have been involed in stalemates seven times in teir last 12 fixtures.

Sadly for them they are also only one win from 12 in that sequence. That has hit their play-off push hard and they now 17th, some 14 points behind Plymouth in sixth.

Defensive;y at home they are sound though – only five sides have conceded less on home soil than Doncaster. They have conceded just 10 goals in their last 12 at the Keepmoat Stadium!


Bradford play their first of three live Sky Sports live fixtures in just 24 days tonight as the broadcaster clearly believes they will be in the play-off shake up come the end of the season.

The Bantams need to improve on recent results however, as they are now winless in nine League One matches, which has left them seven points adrift of the sixth and final play off spot.

A big issue has been their inability to score goals of late. For a side with the fourth best goalsscoring record on away soil, the recent form of just six goals scored in 10 matches has been a major disappointment.

They failed to even have a shot on target in 90 minutes against Wigan last time out and top scorer Charlie Wyke is sudspended and second top scorer Paul Taylor is an injury doubt.

If you followed my work there, you will know my love of backing players to score against their former teams and backing goalkeepers that are winning against the odds to be booked in-play for time wasting.
