Bradford City v Chesterfield tips and betting advice - Promotion-chasing Bantams to march on

Bradford City are looking to continue their promotion chase with another three points on Saturday afternoon as they welcome Chesterfield to Valley Parade for this League One clash.




Bradford City are fighting for another promotion this season in the Sky Bet League One. Having only been promoted from League Two a few seasons ago, the Bantams have consolidated themselves at this level in recent campaigns and despite losing manager Phil Parkinson to Bolton Wanderers in the summer, they have continued to progress this term under Stuart McCall.

After five League One matches without a victory, the West Yorkshire side slipped down to 5th in the table but they did bounce back to some form on Bank Holiday Monday with a terrific comeback at Sixfields to secure a 1-2 victory over Northampton Town. They should be able to build on that victory with another three points here at odds of 4/7 with BetVictor.

Chesterfield have struggled at the opposite end of the Sky Bet League One season so far this term however. The Spireites currently sit behind Bury on goal difference and as a result, sit in one of the division's four relegation places with just 22 points to their name at this stage and worryingly, recent form has shown few signs of improving.

Danny Wilson's men have picked up just one win in their last five league matches and come into this taxing away trip on the back of defeats to Rochdale and Port Vale in their last two away games and a goalless draw with fellow stragglers MK Dons at the Proact Stadium. The away victory is unlikely here, hence why it's priced at 11/2 with bet365.

We aren't expecting many goals in this game. Although Bradford are definitely within the chase for promotion, one weakness is a lack of prolific goalscorer. The Bantams have only actually managed to find the net five times in their last eight matches and no player in their squad has managed more than six league goals so far this season.

Chesterfield are hardly the most prolific side in League One either. Ched Evans' form has subsided since the start of the season and he's managed only five in the league so far this term and his side have failed to score in their last three fixtures in the league. Taking all of this into consideration, we're pleasantly surprised to see under 2.5 goals priced at evens with bet365.

Despite their lack of goals recently, we think the home advantage will help Bradford City through to a win here, but we're expecting a shut-out from the likes of Colin Doyle and Timothee Dieng against this lacklustre Chesterfield frontline, particularly in front of another large crowd at Valley Parade. Bradford to win to nil is priced at 8/5 with William Hill.

Recommended bets:
Under 2.5 goals @ evens with bet365
Bradford to win to nil @ 8/5 with William Hill
