Burton Albion (3) vs Bradford City (2)
Kick Off: 12noon
at the Pirelli Stadium

Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has made three changes to his starting line up for City's crucial Play-Off Semi-Final Second Leg encounter with Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium.

After serving a one-match suspension for the first leg, Andrew Davies returns to partner Rory McArdle in central defence.

Nathan Doyle is recalled back into City's midfield, while Kyel Reid is placed on the left flank once again.

The trio of Michael Nelson, Ricky Ravenhill and Will Atkinson will all start the match from the bench as a result of the changes.

James Hanson is fit enough to start despite a pre-match doubt over a knee problem, meaning the giant striker can continue his partnership in attack with top-scorer Nahki Wells.
