Gary Bowyer has named a strong line-up ahead of the Bantams’ fifth pre-season game, against Sky Bet Championship side Wigan Athletic.

Following last weekend’s visit of Liverpool - with a mid-week trip to Eccleshill United inbetween - City manager Bowyer will be keen to see how his new-look squad manage against second-tier opposition.

Anthony O’Connor and Clayton Donaldson come in as the only changes to the first-half line-up which started against the European champions, last Sunday, with Omari Patrick and Adam Henley listed on the bench.

Trialists Nortei Nortey and Steve Solvet also take up a seat on the substitutes list, with under-18s trio Connor Morris, Eliot Goldthorp and Hayden Smethurst completing the Bantams’ matchday squad.
