Bantams boss Stuart McCall has made six changes to his starting line up for City's Emirates FA Cup first round tie with Sky Bet League Two side Accrington Stanley at the Northern Commercials Stadium.

With Romain Vincelot and Nathaniel Knight-Percival moving down to the bench, Nathan Clarke and Rory McArdle will form City's central defensive partnership this afternoon.

Stephen Darby will captain the side in Vincelot's absence.

Mark Marshall and Filipe Morais will start on the flanks for the Bantams while Daniel Devine will replace the ineligible Josh Cullen in midfield.

McCall's final change will see Haris Vuckic support James Hanson in attack.

Following his match-winning goal in the FA Youth Cup in midweek, young professional Ellis Hudson has been named among City's list of substitutes for the tie.

McCall has decided to err on the side of caution with both Tony McMahon and James Meredith as the duo continue to work their way back to full fitness following recent injury.
