Songo’o starts: The predicted Bradford City XI to face Walsall on Saturday

Published

on

Bradford City will be looking to continue their strong start to the season on Saturday as they take on Walsall in Sky Bet League Two. 

The Bantams have picked up three wins from their opening five league outings under Derek Adams and are already looking like one of the favourites for promotion this term.

They take on a Walsall side this weekend who have only one once in all competitions and appear to be low on confidence after not having the best of starts to the campaign.

With the Saddlers having to visit Valley Parade, Adams and his side will undoubtedly be confident of taking all three points on home turf tomorrow afternoon.

Here, we take a look at the predicted Bradford City starting eleven to face Walsall on Saturday.

Richard O’Donnell will once again keep his place between the sticks for the Bantams and will be aiming to keep another clean sheet this season.

Oscar Threlkeld will come in at right back for Finn Cousin-Dawson, with the latter having been called up for the Northern Ireland under-21 squad, whilst the likes of Niall Canavan, Paudie O’Connor and Liam Ridehalgh appear likely to keep their positions in defence.

Yann Songo’o will once again be expected to manage the centre of the park alongside Elliot Watt, with the duo having built up a good understanding in recent weeks.

Whilst Callum Cooke, Charles Vernam and Alex Gilliead will be looking to provide as much creativity and attacking support as possible to lone striker and Bradford top scorer Andy Cook, who has settled in very well at the club since signing from Mansfield Town during the summer transfer window.

The Bantams are the clear favourites for this weekend clash and the pressure will now be on them to get back to winning ways after falling short against Leyton Orient last time out.
