Bradford City vs Accrington Stanley
Kick Off: 3.00pm
at the Coral Windows Stadium

After making a number of changes for City's trip to Brentford in the F.A Cup last week, Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has chose to revert back largely to the same side that started the club's last league fixture at Southend United eleven days ago.

Matt Duke, Stephen Darby, James Meredith, James Hanson, Will Atkinson, Garry Thompson, Gary Jones and Nathan Doyle, despite recent illness, all come back into Parkinson's starting eleven.

There is no place for Nahki Wells, however, meaning Zavon Hines keeps his starting spot from Brentford. Wells, who has been struggling with illness himself, is only fit enough for the bench.

With Carl McHugh troubled by a minor calf problem and Curtis Good also under the weather, Tom Naylor has been drafted in to partner Rory McArdle is central defence.

Craig Forsyth has returned to Watford following the end of his loan period at the Coral Windows Stadium.
