Recent respective form guides

Bradford City's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Bantams have scored 7, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Morecambe's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Shrimps have hit 7 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Bradford City's 54 points from 40 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 12th position. Morecambe lie just outside the playoff positions in the Coca-Cola League Two, picking up 57 from their 40 games so far.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Its been a distinctly poor show from Bradford City at home in recent games, and, though I cannot see a run starting here, I do think the Bantams will at least gain a draw. Score draw

Sequence statistics:
Bradford City 12 games since last home draw.
Not drawn a match in their last 3 .
