City's reserves will play Wigan Athletic in the Final Third Development League at the Coral Windows Stadium this Tuesday (15 March 2015) - kick off 2:00pm.

Entry into the match is FREE. The lower tier of the JCT600 (Main) Stand will be open on an unreserved basis.

A number of Phil Parkinson's squad members are expected to feature in the fixture. After being sidelined since September due to a broken leg, Paul Anderson is scheduled to be involved in the game.

Bantams boss Phil Parkinson said: "Paul was going to play in the Burton reserves game last week but it got called off.

"He's had another week of training now and he ready to get some minutes under his belt."

Along with Anderson, Christopher Routis, Greg Leigh, Billy Knott and Josh Morris are expected to play a part in the match as well.

Despite originally being penciled in to play in the game, Filipe Morais won't be featuring in the Wigan fixture, however. 

Morais, who has been out of action since suffering a knee injury in pre-season, won't be risked for the game after hurting his shoulder in training on Monday.

Parkinson explained: "Fil tweaked some ligaments in his shoulder. He has had this problem before but it is nothing to be too concerned about.

"We will look to get him right again as soon as possible - there is still plenty of the season still to go.

"It is unfortunate because he was looking forward to playing in the match."

Wigan's development (reserve) squad is managed by former City defender Peter Atherton.
