Sky Bet League 1
Bradford City vs Carlisle United
Kick Off: 3.00pm
at the Coral Windows Stadium

After making a number of changes to his side for the trip to Huddersfield Town in the Capital One Cup, Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has reverted back to the starting eleven that began last weekend's season-opener at Bristol City.

Rory McArdle has shook off a minor ankle problem to once again partner Andrew Davies in central defence for City's first home match of their Sky Bet League 1 campaign - the club's first at this level in over six years.

The return of McArdle and Davies to City's line up means Nathan Doyle, who played as a centre half at Huddersfield, is free to join skipper Gary Jones in central midfield.

With Garry Thompson back on the right flank having played up front on Tuesday night, Mark Yeates will make his competitive home debut on City's left wing.

After both coming off the bench together as part of a triple substitutions at the John Smith's Stadium, strike partners Nahki Wells and James Hanson have been selected in attack again.
