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.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
