Barnet have looked far more impressive on the road this season, than they have at Underhill, where they have managed to draw and lose their only two matches. By contrast, away from home, the Bees have beaten Championship outfit Portsmouth and taken Burnley to extra-time in the Carling Cup as well as seeing off Morecambe and then coming back from 2-0 down to grab a draw at League Two high-flyers Rotherham.
Lawrie Sanchez’s men look huge then at 21/10 with Stan James as they travel to Valley Parade to face a Bradford side with just one point to their name from four games. For the second season in a row the Bantams, a 6/4 chance at Coral, are struggling for goals and that is likely to be a problem against a Barnet side that has struck four in the space of a week against two very decent teams.
Aldershot stunned Championship West Ham at Upton Park on Wednesday in the Carling Cup but it could be a case of ‘after the Lord Mayor’s show’ for Dean Holdsworth’s troops as they turn their attention back to league action and a tricky trip to Oxford.
The visitors have lost three out of four in League Two and they run into a U’s side threatening to come into a bit of form having put an uninspiring start to the campaign behind them to win their last two. A home win is the call at the Kassam Stadium then, at an enticing 23/20 with William Hill.
