Bantams boss Stuart McCall has made one enforced change to his side for this Saturday's match with Oldham Athletic from the starting XI that begun last weekend's win over Coventry City.

With Tony McMahon sidelined with a thigh injury, Timothee Dieng comes into the side for his full competitive debut for City against his former club.

Dieng is expected to partner Josh Cullen in central midfield, meaning the versatile Daniel Devine is likely to start at right back.

In McMahon's absence, Romain Vincelot will captain the side.

Looking to City's bench, there is the welcome sight of Stephen Darby among the Bantams' substitutes for this afternoon's fixture.

Darby is back in City's match eighteen following the summer sidelined with a troublesome groin problem. Matthew Kilgallon and Filipe Morais are also fit enough to join Darby on the bench.

James Hanson won't be involved, however, as he continues to recover from a calf injury.
