Bradford City vs Colchester United
Kick Off: 3.00pm
at the Coral Windows Stadium

Rory McArdle has been brought back into the starting eleven by Phil Parkinson after the defender missed last weekend's victory over Brentford due to international duty with Northern Ireland.

McArdle replaces Luke Oliver in City's line up for the visit of Colchester United, with the remaining ten places in Parkinson's side made up by the same players who started the Brentford game seven days ago.

After making his return from a broken arm in a private friendly at York City on Tuesday, experienced striker Andy Gray has been named among Parkinson's substitutes for the game. Oliver will join Gray on the bench.

Carl McHugh misses out altogether, however, after picking up a knock in the same York behind-closed-doors fixture.
