Colchester United vs Bradford City
Kick Off: 7.45pm
at the Weston Homes Community Stadium

Despite pre-match injury doubts, Andrew Davies and James Hanson have both been passed fit to play for Phil Parkinson's side against Colchester United this Tuesday evening.

Davies comes into the side at the expense of Carl McHugh, meaning he will once again partner Rory McArdle in central defence, while James Hanson replaces Chris Atkinson as City go back to a 4-4-2 formation.

Matthew Dolan also returns to the side to take the place of Gary Jones, who misses his first game of the season due to illness. Stephen Darby will captain the side in Jones' absence.

City's fourth and final change sees Adam Drury handed his full debut at left back.

With four loanees in City's side and Chris Atkinson on the bench, goalkeeper Arron Jameson, himself on loan from Sheffield Wednesday, misses out due to the Football League ruling that prevents any more than five loan players from being named in any match eighteen.

As a result of Jameson's absence, apprentice 'keeper Jack Bentley will act as City's reserve shot-stopper for the night.
