The Bantams are a dangerous team to underestimate, as several Premier League teams have found to their cost this season, but Tuesday sees Phil Parkinson’s men head to Aston Villa looking to defend a 3-1 advantage to sensationally reach the Capital One Cup final so it could be that they don’t devote their full attention to this contest.
That’s not advisable against the in-form hosts, who have to be backed at an odds-against quote of 11/10 with Sportingbet.
For their part Gillingham can keep the pressure on last week’s conquerors Port Vale by emerging triumphant at Rochdale, a result Coral offer at 13/10.
Martin Allen’s men have a tremendous record on the road, where they have won nine and lost just one of their 13 assignments while the hosts are out-of-sorts to say the least, coming into the clash on the back of eight defeats in ten.
Double on Port Vale and Gillingham – 15/4 (BetVictor)
