Gary Jones: Can strike for Bradford

Gary Jones: Can strike for Bradford

Already advised:
3pts Northampton to win promotion at 3/1
4pts Bradford to win promotion at 11/2

There was good news and bad news for our League Two play-off selections on Thursday night but there is still all to play for in Sunday's return legs.

Northampton beat Cheltenham 1-0 in their opening contest at Sixfields and that gives the Cobblers plenty of belief to head west with.

Roy O'Donovan scoring the only goal of the game was good news for Betting Zone followers and hopefully more of the same will come at Whaddon Road to get our pick marching to Wembley.

I don't have a tip to add for the Sunday evening contest in Gloucestershire but there is a way to get involved in the early kick-off between


Burton and Bradford


.

The Bantams are the side backed for promotion way back before the season started and I still think they are in with a shout despite the disappointment of losing 3-2 to the Brewers at Valley Parade.

Burton's performance was certainly highly impressive but Garry Thompson's second half strike gives Phil Parkinson's men hope after conceding three goals before half-time.

Bradford have proved throughout this season that they just can't be written off - most memorably on the march to the Capital One Cup final but don't ignore the effort that was needed for the late climb to the play-offs.

They will be doing all they can to avoid this campaign ending with a whimper and getting with midfield lynchpin Gary Jones is the best way to go for punters.

The former Rochdale man has impressed throughout the season and rightly earned a spot in the PFA League Two Team of the Year.

Jones hasn't been full of goals this term but I have a feeling that 7/1 for him to strike at the Pirelli Stadium is worth a shout.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
