Bradford Shine In International Break

With no Premier League football over the weekend the pick of the televised domestic action came from League One, with Bradford City impressing in their 3-1 home win over Bristol Rovers. The Bantams narrowly missed out on promotion last season when they were beaten by Millwall in the play-off final, but having picked up 10 points from their first five games they are showing no signs of a hangover from that defeat and they could easily have racked up a much bigger margin of victory on Saturday.

Stuart McCall’s side looked solid in all departments and possess a genuine attacking threat, with the lively Dominic Poleon working hard to support the traditional number nine Charlie Wyke, who helped himself to a hat-trick to open his account for the season. They will certainly be in the mix again this season and can be backed at stand-out odds of 9/2 with Paddy Power to be promoted – which looks a great price.
