Capital One Cup Round 3
Milton Keynes Dons vs Bradford City
Kick Off: 7.45pm

Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has made as many as four changes to his side from the eleven that began both of City's league fixtures at MK Dons and Colchester United.

Jordan Pickford is ineligible for the game, while Stephen Darby isn't risked due to a minor groin strain.

With Aaron Mclean and Mark Yeates moving down to the bench, Ben Williams, Filipe Morais, Oliver McBurnie and Mason Bennett are all brought into the side.

Bennett is allowed to play in the tie after being given permission by parent club Derby County to feature for City in the competition.

The Derby loanee is expected to start the game on the left wing, with Morais on the right and Billy Clarke in an attacking midfield role just behind lone striker McBurnie.

Given Darby's absence, Gary Liddle will start the game at right back, meaning Jason Kennedy and Billy Knott will operate in central midfield in a 4-4-1-1/4-2-3-1 formation.

Liddle will also captain the side in place of Darby.

Apprentices James King, Reece Webb-Foster, Sam Wright and James Pollard join Mclean, Yeates and reserve 'keeper Matt Urwin on City's bench.
