Bantams Head Coach David Hopkin has brought the fit-again Hope Akpan back into his starting XI for this Tuesday's match with Coventry City at the Northern Commercials Stadium.

Akpan, who had previously been sidelined since the start of September with a shoulder problem, is one of two changes made by Hopkin from last Saturday's encounter with Rochdale.

Along with Akpan, Nathaniel Knight-Percival also comes into the team for the injured Kelvin Mellor.

Joe Riley is named on the bench, along with the attacking trio of David Ball, Alex Jones and Jordan Gibson.
