Capital One Cup Round 2
Bradford City vs Leeds United
Kick Off: 7.45pm
at the Coral Windows Stadium

Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has made four changes to his starting eleven for this Wednesday's televised Capital One Cup tie with Leeds United.

Following Andrew Davies' broken arm during Saturday's Peterborough United fixture, Alan Sheehan - a one time Leeds player - moves into central defence, meaning Australian James Meredith plays at left back.

With Sunderland loanee 'keeper Jordan Pickford once again unable to play for City in the Capital One Cup, Ben Williams comes into the side again after playing in the first round tie at Morecambe.

Like Pickford, fellow loanee Mason Bennett is also not allowed to play in the competition either so Aaron Mclean will partner James Hanson in attack.

Billy Clarke is fit again after a recent hamstring problem and he is expected to play in the attacking midfield role just behind Mclean and Hanson, replacing Filipe Morais in the process.
