Ahead of City's Sky Bet League One fixture with Milton Keynes Dons at the Northern Commercials Stadium, highlights five possible things to look out for this Tuesday evening.

1. Fortress Valley Parade?
Should City avoid defeat against MK Dons this Tuesday, it will ensure that the Bantams will have gone an entire year without suffering a league defeat on home soil. To date, City's most recent loss in the league at the Northern Commercials Stadium came at the hands of Colchester United on 1 March 2016. With City's next home fixture after Tuesday night coming up against Peterborough United on Saturday (4 March 2017), a win or a draw from the MK Dons match will confirm a year unbeaten for the Bantams at Valley Parade in league fixtures.

2. Six in a row?
Victory for Stuart McCall's men would make it six league wins on the trot for the Bantams over Milton Keynes Dons. In the two previous seasons City and MK Dons have been in the same division - the 2014/2015 and 2013/2014 campaigns - the Bantams have secured home and away wins on both occasions. With City having also defeated MK Dons at Stadium MK earlier this season, can McCall's side make it six on the trot this Tuesday?

3. Tuesday night delight?
This Tuesday's fixture is scheduled to be City's final midweek home game under the lights this season. With February ending tomorrow (Wednesday), the MK Dons fixture will also be City's last competitive game using the yellow 'winter' footballs. City have won four out of their five Tuesday night home games in the league and cup, drawing the other one against Southend United. Can City continue that impressive form in the MK Dons match?

4. Four on the trot for Clarke?
City's number ten certainly seems to like playing against MK Dons. The Irish attacker has netted in his last three league games for City against the Dons. Can the talented forward make it four in a row on Tuesday night, scoring his 25th goal for City in the process?

5. Keeping up with the Joneses?
Could Tuesday evening be all about the surname 'Jones'? Fresh from netting the match-winner on Saturday at Port Vale - his first goal for the club - January recruit Alex Jones will be pushing for a starting berth against Milton Keynes Dons. Popular former skipper Gary Jones will also be in the crowd at the Northern Commercials Stadium to watch his old side in action. Could City make it a winning return for the fans' favourite, maybe even with Alex getting on the scoresheet?
