Taylor hoping to guide his Bradford charges to League Two title

| 07.07.2010

With the vastly experienced Peter Taylor at the helm, Bradford City are the 8/1 favourites to win this season’s League Two title.

Tenacious central midfielder Tommy Dochery is a canny addition to a team which already boasts the quality of midfielder Michael Flynn and former Fulham centre-back Zesh Rehman.

Bradford’s Yorkshire rivals, and last season’s losing play-off finalists Rotherham, meanwhile, are 10/1 to secure the title.

The Millers will be heavily dependent on Adam Le Fondre, who was League Two’s second top scorer last season with 27 goals.

Stevenage are in the Football League for the first time in their history, and they have removed the Borough affix from their name to mark this new era.

Having been promoted as Conference champions last season, Stevenage start this term as tempting 14/1 contenders to win a second title in successive campaigns.

Among the teams to be relegated from League One last season, Gillingham are, at 9/1, the most fancied to return to the third tier of English football as League Two winners.

The Gills will be desperate to hold onto their prized asset, Simeon Jackson, as the prolific Canadian striker is reportedly attracting interest from Championship and League One clubs.

As they enter their second season in the Football League under the tutelage of Paul Peschisolido, Burton Albion will be looking to build on last season’s solid 13th place.

Shaun Harrad finished last season with 21 league goals to his name, and the 25-year-old striker will be crucial to the Brewers’ hopes. They are 33/1 to clinch promotion as champions.

Who do you think will finish top of the pile? Chesterfield are 12/1 to win the title. See the full League Two market.
