Bradford City v Millwall Preview, League One, Play Off Final, 20th May 2017

Bradford City head into this game having had a great season and after 46 matches played they finished in a very respectable 5th position in the league table with 79pts having won 20, drawn 19 and lost 7.

Bradford City came through their promotion play off match against Fleetwood Town with a 1-0 aggregate win to reach theses finals and having kept a clean sheet during those two matches the players and fans will obviously be very confident of winning this game on Saturday afternoon to secure their place in the championship for next season.

Millwall head into the game having also had a very good season and after 46 matches played they finished in 6th position of the league table with 73pts having won 20, drawn 13 and lost 13.

Millwall came through their promotion play off match against Scunthorpe 3-2 on aggregate to book their place at wembley stadium for this final and showed tremendous character in the 2nd leg match coming back from a goal down to win the game 3-2 and that result will also have their fans and players confident of securing their place in the championship for next season.

Bradford City Team News :

Bradford’s only injury doubt is Alex Jones, who missed both legs of the semi-final against Fleetwood Town with a hamstring injury. Otherwise, they are at full-strength

Millwall Team News :

Harris has no new injury worries ahead of the final. Defender Shaun Hutchinson played through the pain barrier with a broken rib in the semi-final and is likely to do so again.

Bradford City v Millwall Head to Head Statistics:

Saturday’s afternoon game from Wembley Stadium will become the 19th meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which Bradford City have managed to win 3 matches overall, with all 3 of those having came with home advantage.

Millwall have managed to secure 8 wins overall, with 3 of those victories recorded away from home and as such they will definitely be the more confident team taking to the wembley pitch on Saturday afternoon.

As we can see from our head to head to head statistics table shown below, recent meetings between the two clubs shows neither club with any clear advantage from their previous 5 encounters played, with both clubs having won a game each and the remaining 3 games having finished all square.

As such, there is a very strong possibility that this game could follow suit and go into extra time this weekend and even to a dreaded penalty shoot-out.

43 Goals have been scored in the previous 18 meetings between the two clubs and this provides us with an overall average goals per game statistic of 2.39.

Based on the data shown above, it does seem to suggest that this game is unlikely to see many goals scored on Saturday afternoon at Wembley Stadium, but going on the previous three meetings, both teams to score does look a good pick for this game.

Bradford City v Millwall Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Based on what both clubs have done this season there doesn’t really look to be much between them as they prepare for this play off final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Bradford City did finish 6pts above Millwall in the league table, but if we look at the previous head to head meetings between the two clubs, it does show Millwall having a slight advantage.

Bradford City managed to keep a clean sheet in both of their promotion play off matches and that will no doubt have installed plenty of confidence into the players for this one as with Millwall having conceded three goals in their promotion play off match, Bradford City will believe they can keep them out.

An exciting game in prospect and although the previous average goals per game statistics are suggesting this one won’t see too many goals, there does look like being at least a couple and as such this seems to be the stand out bet for this game.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip is going to be for Both Teams to Score as with four of the last five encounters having seen both clubs score, the current best price of Even Money with SkyBet does look great value here.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be for Millwall Striker Lee Gregory to score the first goal of this game as with 18 goals this season, 11 of those having been the first goals of the game, he looks the stand out choice here to open up the goalscoring in this game.
