Sky Bet League 1
Milton Keynes Dons vs Bradford City
Kick Off: 7.45pm
at stadiummk

Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has handed French defender Christopher Routis his first league start for City at stadiummk this evening.

Routis, who enjoyed his first outing for the club at Oldham Athletic in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy at the start of the month, replaces the suspended Alan Sheehan in central defence.

The Frenchman's promotion up into the side is one of two changes made by Parkinson for the MK Dons fixture, with Aaron Mclean replacing Billy Clarke in attack for the other alteration from last Saturday's starting line up against Swindon Town.

Despite pre-match doubts, James Meredith and Mark Yeates have both been declared fit to start.

Substitute goalkeeper Matt Urwin is named on the bench for the Bantams after Ben Williams fell ill overnight.

Apprentices Sam Wright and James King have been named on the bench alongside Urwin for the match.
