Sky Bet League 1
Bradford City vs Port Vale
Kick Off: 3.00pm
at the Coral Windows Stadium

Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has made four changes to the side that began Tuesday's Capital One Cup tie at Milton Keynes Dons for this Saturday's match with Port Vale.

Jordan Pickford, Aaron Mclean, Mark Yeates, plus the fit-again Stephen Darby, are all brought back into City's starting eleven by Parkinson.

Ben Williams, Oliver McBurnie, Filipe Morais and Mason Bennett - all of whom started at stadiummk during the week - move down to the bench.

Free from suspension, Alan Sheehan joins the quartet on City's bench. Matthew Dolan and first year pro Niall Heaton make up the rest of the Bantams' substitutes.

Dolan is available for selection again after a recent hip injury, while Heaton has just returned to the club following a month-long loan at Ossett Town.
