Sky Bet League 1
Bradford City vs Brentford
Kick Off: 3.00pm
at the Coral Windows Stadium
Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has sprung a surprise with his team selection for this Saturday's encounter with Brentford by handing Luke Oliver a return to first-team action.
With Rory McArdle currently away on international duty with Northern Ireland, Oliver, who has been missing from Parkinson's squad since snapping his Achilles tendon back in October, has been selected to play in central defence alongside Andrew Davies.
The rest of Parkinson's starting eleven is the same from the group that started at Stevenage seven days ago, meaning Kyel Reid has been chosen again ahead of Mark Yeates.
City's substitutes are also the same from the Stevenage fixture.
