Bradford City vs Notts County

, KO: 19:45 Mar 19, 2024, University of Bradford Stadium
Notts County

Bradford City and Notts County square off in a Monday night League Two fixture with both teams looking to end poor runs. Both sides are desperate to get their campaign back on track and with neither defence looking solid at the moment, goals could be expected here.

Bradford City are coming off a disappointing 5-1 defeat to leaders Mansfield Town last time out in League Two. They were already four goals down before the break with Andrew Cook’s second half effort proving to be a mere consolation.

That result extends a poor run of form for Bradford City, who have picked up just one win from their last five matches. Manager Graham Alexander will be mostly disappointed with his team’s defending as they have kept just one clean sheet in that run.

Bradford City have also found things difficult at home, with just two wins in the last 10 League Two matches in front of their fans. They have also lost the last two fixtures in that run.

Notts County travel to Bradford off the back of a 2-2 draw with Accrington Stanley in their previous League Two fixture. They led twice through James O’Brien and Alassane Jatta but were pegged back both times.

Stuart Maynard’s men have not fared much better than Bradford City having picked up just one win from their last 10 matches. Like their hosts, defending has been a problem for Notts County, with just one clean sheet in their last 12 matches.

Notts County may have held out for a draw at Accrington Stanley last time out but their away form has been disappointing this season. They have claimed just one win from their last 11 League Two fixtures on the road.
