MORECAMBE (AWAY) - Wednesday 9 November 2016, kick off 7:45pm, Globe Arena, Checkatrade Trophy 

The Bantams travel to Morecambe this Wednesday evening for their final Northern Group C match in this season's Checkatrade Trophy.

Having already qualified for the knock-out stages, City know they only need a point, or a loss by less than a two-goal margin, at the Globe Arena to secure top spot in the group and a home draw in round two.

Wednesday's game will be City's first away match in the competition following home victories over Stoke City and Bury.

Morecambe's previous games in the group have resulted in a 4-1 loss at Bury and then a 3-1 home win over Stoke.

The Shrimps can still qualify themselves from the group with a victory or a penalty shoot-out success. A win by two or more goals will see them finish top.

Team News

Full back James Jennings is cup-tied for the Shrimps having already played in the competition for Cheltenham Town.

Ryan Edwards is available, however, after the central defender was suspended for their Emirates FA Cup match with Coventry City on Sunday.

Former Bantams loanee Kevin Ellison is a doubt following a recent ankle injury.

Bradford City
With Colin Doyle currently away on international duty, German shot-stopper Rouven Sattelmaier is expected to start between the sticks at the Globe Arena.

Young professional James King is also likely to be involved for his maiden appearance with the first team since graduating up from the youth team back in 2015.

Australian left back James Meredith could play some part in the game after a period out with an ankle injury.

Joe Cracknell and Reece Webb-Foster are expected to be involved in the squad after loan spells with Bradford Park Avenue and Harrogate Town respectively.

Previous Meetings
City are unbeaten in their four previous visits to Morecambe's Globe Arena since the Shrimps' move to the new stadium back in 2010.

The Bantams' most recent trip to Morecambe came back in August 2014 when a late Aaron Mclean goal secured victory for City in the Capital One (now EFL) Cup.

City's last away match with Morecambe in the league resulted in a 0-0 draw on New Year's Day 2013.

The Bantams also drew at Morecambe in September 2011 - the game this time finishing 1-1 - when an injury time equaliser from Ross Hannah earned a share of the spoils.

City won 1-0 on their first visit to the Globe Arena back in March 2011 thanks to James Hanson's first half opener.
