‘Down to the final day’ – Barrow vs Bradford City prediction: The72

Barrow and Bradford City meet on Tuesday night in a potentially huge game in the League Two play-off fight.

Barrow come into this midweek clash with Bradford City desperately looking to improve their form and hold onto a place in the League Two play-offs.

The Bluebirds are winless in five and have lost four of those, leaving them slipping into the grasps of the chasing pack. They sit 6th in the table and just a point ahead of Doncaster Rovers in 8th after Grant McCann’s side defeated them 4-2 at the weekend.

Pete Wild has worked admirably to get Barrow into this position again but falling short now would be gut-wrenching.

Bradford City meanwhile have persisted with their hot and cold form under Graham Alexander.

After a run of four straight defeats looked to have ended their hopes of a late charge for the top seven, the Bantams have gone unbeaten in five. They’ve won four of those to move four points off the play-offs with two left to play.

Their late bid could be ended here, but three points will put them within touching distance of the play-offs after a 3-2 win over Walsall at the weekend.

Here, a handful of our writers make their predictions for the game…

“While their form has faltered, Barrow have maintained a decent home record and that could give them hope of picking up a much-needed result here. However, there’s no hiding that all the momentum is with the visitors coming into this one.

Bradford City have shown how streaky they can be this season but at the perfect time, they’ve found their feet and put a run together. It might just earn them a play-off spot, and maybe at Barrow’s expense.

“This is bound to be a tense game but I think the result here means it goes down to the final day.

“I’ll say Bradford claim a narrow 2-1 win on the road.”

Barrow vs Bradford City prediction: 1-2

Barrow are winless in their last five games and will be desperate to return to winning ways.

“The Bluebirds risk dropping out of the play-offs with two fixtures left to play if they don’t turn their fortunes around.

“As for Bradford City, they are unbeaten in their last five outings and could sneak into the top seven if they win their last two matches.

Barrow away is a tough game for any side but I think the visitors will come away with another win.”

Barrow vs Bradford City prediction: 0-1
