Bradford City vs Crewe Alexandra
Kick Off: 3.00pm
at the Coral Windows Stadium

Matthew Dolan has been put straight into City's starting eleven for this Saturday's home fixture with Crewe Alexandra following the midfielder's loan move to the Coral Windows Stadium.

Dolan will partner skipper Gary Jones in central midfield, replacing the suspended Nathan Doyle in the process.

After missing last weekend's match at Wolverhampton Wanderers, both Andrew Davies and James Hanson are also named in the Bantams' line up.

Hanson takes the place of Andy Gray up front to see the giant striker join Aaron Mclean in attack for Parkinson's men.

Davies will play alongside Carl McHugh at the heart of City's defence after Rory McArdle took a nasty bang to the head during training this Friday.

McArdle suffered a clash of heads with apprentice midfielder Callum Chippendale, meaning the defender will miss out as a result.

Kyle Bennett comes back into the side following his one-match suspension - taking the place of Garry Thompson on City's right wing - while Raffaele De Vita returns the bench after eight games out with a thigh problem.
