Wells fit for Gillingham match

7 February 2013

Bantams striker Nahki Wells WILL be contention to face fellow promotion contenders Gillingham at the Coral Windows Stadium this Saturday, despite coming off early at Fleetwood Town last weekend.

The Bermudian hot-shot - City's top scorer this season - was replaced five minutes before the end at Fleetwood's Highbury Stadium after straining his groin while stretching for the ball in the second half of the match.

After checks on the injury earlier this week though, Wells is now back in training and preparing with the rest of the squad for the visit of Martin Allen's Gills to Valley Parade.

City assistant Steve Parkin confirmed: "There is no problem with Nahki now."

"He is fine and he's trained with us today (Thursday)."

Rory McArdle, who, like Wells, also picked up an injury at Fleetwood, isn't expected to feature against the Gills, however. 

Thankfully though, the swelling around the defender's injured left ankle has all but gone and the 25 year-old is now set for a scan this afternoon to determine exactly what damage has been done.

McArdle's fellow defender, James Meredith, was a welcome face back in the City training ground this week after his month-long period of house rest following a recent bout of glandular fever.

The Australian's energy levels have been improving, but he has yet to make a return to full training just yet. Meredith was due for a set of blood tests this Thursday to see how he is progressing.
