Bradford City v Fleetwood Town
Live on Thursday, at 19:45 BST on Sky Sports 5.
Bradford to win to nil
The Bantams have conceded just one goal at home since the end of the February.
Valley Parade has been a real fortress for them this season, where they are unbeaten in the league.
Eight of Bradford’s 11 home wins have come without the opposition replying.
Draw/Bradford win in half-time/full-time market
Stuart McCall’s Bantams have been drawing at the break but gone on to win in three of their last four home games.
This was also the case when they faced Fleetwood at Valley Parade back in September.
Backing the same combination in the half-time/full-time market again looks a good shout.
Millwall v Scunthorpe United
Live on Thursday, at 19:45 BST on Sky Sports 1.
Millwall to win the first leg
Although the visiting Iron are on a five-match winning streak, the last team they lost to was the Lions.
The Den is an inhospitable place for teams to travel and the partisan crowd will be squarely behind Millwall.
A 3-1 defeat there for Scunthorpe is still fresh as it came on April Fools’ Day.
Sky Bet are evens about the Lions’ repeating victory and taking a lead back to Glamford Park.
Lee Gregory to score anytime
Leading Millwall marksman Gregory warmed up for this play-off by bagging a brace against Bristol Rovers.
That means he is back in-form after taking his seasonal tally to 17.
The Iron have conceded 30 goals on their travels this term, including three on their last visit to the Den.
