City: The Bantams will be without Billy Clarke after he picked up a calf injury against Tranmere Rovers last Tuesday.

Lee Novak, who made his first appearance in 2021 at the weekend, will be pushing to start against the Ammies.

Ollie Crankshaw will be unavailable against the Ammies, having been withdrawn on Saturday having suffered from breathing difficulties. 

Salford: Veteran striker Ian Henderson is looking likely to take part in Tuesday’s fixture after he scored and started against Mansfield Town last time out.

Richie Towell will miss out after receiving a red card on Saturday afternoon at the Peninsula Stadium.

Salford stopper Vaclav Hladky earned his 20th league clean sheet of the season against the Stags and should start in goal at the Utilita Energy Stadium.


Conor Sellars: "They are a really good side and have been all season, right back to when they had Graham Alexander and Richie Wellens in charge.

"Gary (Bowyer) has done a fantastic job so far, and is a great manager and guy, so we are looking forward to the game."


Three first-half goals from the Ammies ensured that the Bantams would leave the Peninsula Stadium empty-handed in November.
