Bradford vs MK Dons

Bradford have been through abysmal form in previous weeks, they narrowly escaped another draw courtesy of a 92nd minute header from Carl McHugh. They are looking to follow up the win though against Port Vale with a victory against the Dons who will provide tough opposition for The Bantams.

Striker Aaron McLean is still to score his first goal but with new signing’s Adam Reach and Kyle Bennett tearing up the wings, he should have plenty of service to help him get that elusive goal he needs. Carl McHugh is likely to start at left back again as well and Nathan Doyle should hold his place in the center of midfield after a good performance midweek.

MK Dons sit 9th in the League as well but they have also picked up in recent weeks with a couple of wins for themselves. Ben Reeves has been scoring lots of goals recently for them and currently stands with 10 for them. Izale McLeod has also been impressive this season for the Dons as well. 17 year old midfielder Dele Alli has also been impressive this season, could the Dons earn the 3 points?

Brentford vs Wolves

This game has the potential to be an enthralling encounter too between two of the leagues top sides.

The Bees have been on a rampant run and have not lost in the league since the 12th of October. Marcello Trotta has contributed with 10 goals and Clayton Donaldson has been on red hot form. Recent loanee Alan Judge has impressed since his arrival and he will be looking to help Mark Warbuton’s Brentford extend there unbeaten run against the ‘Man City of League One’.

Kenny Jackett will be likely to start Nouha Dicko  up front as he has impacted well since signing in the January window.  Bakary Sako will undoubtedly be looking to add more goals to his game as well. This is likely to be a fast paced game and may well see some goals.
