Bradford – Grimsby preview: latest form, news, and potential lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Bradford vs Grimsby lineups.

Bradford

Last weekend Bradford drew 0-0 away vs Mansfield. The display was decent and this was a second consecutive clean sheet. However, the forward actions remain unconvincing and Bradford have now scored just 1 goal in the last 3 rounds. 

All that said Bradford won both their home league games so far this season and they are now on a run of three consecutive home league wins. 

Bradford have a lot of veterans in their ranks. There are 9 first-team players aged 31 and more, but they lack speed down the flanks and this has been the main reason why so far their forward actions haven’t been that impressive. 

Winger Chapman and striker Oliver remain doubtful. Both are yet to play this season but both have resumed team training this week so might be available soon. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Lewis (GK), Platt, Stubbs, Kelly, Pattison, Oyegoke, Smallwood, Smith, Richard, Walker & Derbyshire

Grimsby

Grimsby beat Gillingham 2-0 at home last weekend. Then on Tuesday, they lost 0-2 away vs Barnsley in an EFL clash. Grimsby have steadied the ship lately and they are undefeated in the last 4 rounds (W2 D2). 

However, only one of those four games was on the road and this is where the main problems lie. Grimsby have collected just 1 point from their last 4 away matches. 

Experienced centre-back Waterfall was sick on Tuesday and he’s a doubt. Strikers Khan and Wilson also could miss, both continue to nurse injuries. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Eastwood (GK), Efete, Amos, Maher, Rogers, Holohan, Clifton, Mularkey, Rose, Eisa & Pyke
