Fleetwood vs Bradford betting tips and predictions for the second leg League One play-off semi-final on Sunday evening. Our betting preview includes three betting tips.
One of these two sides will have booked their place at Wembley by 9pm on Sunday evening. Bradford have the advantage but face a tough assignment in West Lancashire.
Fleetwood would have been over the moon with a goalless draw at Valley Parade but Rory McArdle had other ideas. The solid defender notched the only goal of the game which gives Bradford an advantage going into Sunday’s second leg. The Bantams haven’t lost at home all season under boss Stuart McCall and have impressed. They deserve their place in the end of season shake-up but haven’t been quite as effective away from West Yorkshire.
Fleetwood narrowly missed out on promotion and Uwe Rosler will feel his side got away lightly on Thursday. The hosts were piling on the pressure towards the end and a second strike would have been a huge blow to the Cod Army.
Fleetwood’s home record has been mixed in recent weeks but they remain hard to beat. The German boss will be slightly concerned that they’ve only scored once in their last four home matches however and couldn’t find a way past a dogged Port Vale side on the final day of the season. Bradford will be protecting their lead and another very even battle looks on the cards so our first Fleetwood vs Bradford betting tip is the draw and the odds are 9/4 with Betfred.
Fleetwood’s defence is simply superb and Bradford’s backline is watertight. It did end 2-1 here earlier in the season but it’s hard to envisage a goal-fest here so our second Fleetwood vs Bradford prediction is for under 2.5 goals to be scored at 7/10 with bet365.

Uwe Rosler was perfectly happy with his side’s performance last night but wished his side had been more clinical. Ashley Hunter adds some creativity and the youngster may be given the nod here as Fleetwood look for a way back into the tie.
Bradford are likely to remain unchanged from the victory on Thursday. Jordy Hiwula could be deployed from the bench once again to stretch the game late on.
Fleetwood won 2-1 here earlier in the season. Bradford have now won three of the last four meetings between the sides. The Bantams haven’t won here since 2014.
