Bury vs Bradford City
Emirates FA Cup Third Round
Saturday 9 January 2016

Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has made three alterations to his starting line up for City's Emirates FA Cup third round tie at fellow Sky Bet League 1 side Bury.

With Reece Burke back at West Ham United and Nathan Clarke suspended, Frenchman Christopher Routis will partner Rory McArdle in central defence.

Lee Evans comes into midfield at the expense of Billy Knott, while Billy Clarke will once again link up with James Hanson in attack instead of Devante Cole.

After nearly four months sidelined with a troublesome knee injury, Josh Morris has been named among City's substitutes for the tie at Gigg Lane.
