F.A Cup First Round
FC Halifax Town vs Bradford City
Kick Off: 12noon
at the Shay Stadium

Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has made two enforced changes to his starting eleven for City's F.A Cup tie at FC Halifax Town.

With loanee goalkeeper Jordan Pickford not allowed to play in the match by parent club Sunderland, Ben Williams starts between the sticks, while James Hanson's on-going thigh problems means he is replaced by Jason Kennedy in City's line up.

Andy Halliday and Jon Stead both keep their places, however, after being given permission by their parent clubs to play in the tie.

Rory McArdle returns from his one-match suspension but has to settle for a place on the bench, meaning Alan Sheehan and Andrew Davies remain as the Bantams' central defensive pair.
