Bradford vs Rochdale (By: Akebob)
Bradford has been on a good moon recently (4 wins 2 draws 1 defeat), while in the League 2 they are in the second position, just one point behind Forest Green.
In order to qualify for the EFL Trophy next round, they need a win with at least three goals to cover the difference between 2nd placed Bolton.
I don't think they will hunt that, but anyway, they should be happy that they don't have a league game next Saturday, as the game against Colchester was postponed due to international duty of three Colchester players.
Striker Clayton Donaldson (13/2), second striker Shay McCartan (5/1) and midfielder Matt Palmer (11/0) are sidelined.
To the away side, Rochdale needs a win with four goals difference to qualify, something quite difficult.
Their coach stated that he try new players and to field their young talents at this game.
For the league they play away to Coventry on Saturday, so tonight's game is not that important for them.
Main keeper Robert Sánchez (12 games played), left-back Rhys Norrington-Davies (15/1) and midfielder Oliver Rathbone (15/1) are all out.
Bradford is to a better form at the moment and has more reasons to win this game against an alternative Rochdale squad.
