Sky Bet League 1
Brentford vs Bradford City
Kick Off: 3.00pm
at Griffin Park
Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has made three changes to his starting eleven for City's match at Brentford this Saturday.
Chris Atkinson, Matthew Bates and Kyle Bennett have all been brought into the side. For Atkinson, it is his first start for the club following his loan move from Huddersfield Town earlier this year.
With Atkinson expected to play in behind lone striker Aaron Mclean, Friday's loan signing from Leeds United, Adam Drury, will start on the bench.
Atkinson comes in for James Hanson after Parkinson decided not to risk the tall attacker due to a minor groin problem.
Davies is also not involved after still feeling his calf problem in training on Friday. As a result, Bates will come into the side at left back and Carl McHugh will move across to partner Rory McArdle in central defence.
Bennett comes into the side to replace Garry Thompson on the right flank.
Following Drury's inclusion in the match-day eighteen, fellow loanee Matthew Dolan has not been selected at all to ensure City comply with Football League regulations.
League rules dictate that only five loan players are allowed on any one team-sheet.
