It’s been a brilliant week for Bradford City, who reached the semi-final of the Capital One Cup by beating Arsenal on penalties on a dramatic night at Valley Parade before being reinstated into the FA Cup in the wake of a row about an ineligible player.
However, as attention turns back to League Two, it could be a case of ‘after the Lord Mayor’s Show’ for the Bantams as they head to play-off chasing Southend.
The Shrimpers were boosted by their own shootout success, over Bury, in midweek and haven’t lost in eleven in all competitions so they’re hardly the best opponent if you’re not a hundred percent focused and we fully expect them to capitalise on any League Cup hangover where City are concerned, at odds of 13/10 with BetVictor.
Worth doubling up with Southend are Coral’s even money chances Chesterfield. The Spireites are going in the right direction under Paul Cook and have won four on the spin in League Two while the visitors have lost two out of three in the league.
Double on Southend and Chesterfield – 18/5 (BetVictor)
