As expected, Bantams boss Stuart McCall has made several changes to his side for this Tuesday's Checkatrade Trophy Round Two tie with Oldham Athletic.

With some members of his squad nursing aches and pains from Saturday's Emirates FA Cup win over Plymouth Argyle, McCall has made as many as nine alterations to his starting XI.

Lukas Raeder has been given the nod to start in goal, while Jacob Hanson, Adam Thompson and Luke Hendrie all come into City's defensive unit ahead of him.

The Bantams' midfield contains Daniel Pybus, Jordan Gibson and Daniel Devine, while Omari Patrick and Shay McCartan are paired together in attack.

Nathaniel Knight-Percival and Alex Gilliead keep their places from Saturday's Plymouth victory.

McCall has named a strong bench for Tuesday's tie, with Matthew Kilgallon, Paul Taylor, Nicky Law and Romain Vincelot all included on City's list of substitutes.

Dominic Poleon was in contention to start but he has had to settle for a place on the bench after a recent bout of illness.

Reece Staunton, who became the youngest ever player to feature in a first team fixture for City last month in their previous Checkatrade Trophy game, is also on the Bantams bench.

The defender turns 16 this Sunday.
