City: Stuart McCall’s squad could be strengthened ahead of Tuesday evening with the possible return of Billy Clarke, Bryce Hosannah and Callum Cooke - who all sat out Saturday’s trip to Salford through injury.

Kurtis Guthrie is nearing full-fitness, though Tuesday may come too early for him. Callum Cooke and Lee Novak are expected to remain unavailable. 

McCall will be hoping to see Reece Staunton return to his squad for the trip to London, after the 18-year-old also missed out at the weekend. 

Orient: Danny Johnson, who is the second-highest goalscorer in the league with nine, is expected to feature. The Orient forward bagged a hat-trick against Harrogate last time out.

Experienced midfielder Jobi McAnuff is also likely to feature after starting last weekend. The 39-year-old is currently taking on a player/coach role at the East London outfit, having represented Reading in the Premier League. 

Josh Wright is a familiar face in the opposing dressing room - having spent the 2018/19 season with Bantams. He is also likely to feature for the O’s.


City moved up to fifth in Sky Bet League Two with a goalless draw at the Breyer Group Stadium back in December. 

Saturday 14th December 2019

Attendance: 6,015 (997 visitors).

Referee: Christopher Pollard.

CITY: Richard O’Donnell; Adam Henley, Kelvin Mellor, Anthony O’Connor (booked 20’), Paudie O’Connor, Connor Wood; Callum Cooke, Jake Reeves (Matt Palmer 79’), Chris Taylor (Harry Pritchard 69’); Aramide Oteh (Shay McCartan 86'), James Vaughan (c).

Sam Allison will be the man in the middle on Tuesday evening. He started off as a referee in 2011 and was promoted to the EFL at the start of this season. 

The 39-year old has taken charge of five Sky Bet League Two fixtures this campaign - issuing 11 yellow cards in the process.

This will be his first time officiating a Bradford City game, though he did take charge of Orient's Papa John' Trophy victory over AFC Wimbledon in October. 

Allison will be assisted by Dean Treleaven and Michael Begley, with Alan Young the fourth official.


The O’s will be in their traditional red colours tomorrow evening, with City in their striking grey third strip.

Orient: Red / Red / Red

City: Fusion Grey / Fusion Grey / Fusion Grey
