Mark Hughes has named nine changes to his starting 11, as the Bantams’ pack is shuffled ahead of their final Papa Johns Trophy Group H encounter against Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium.

Defensive pair Matty Platt and Romoney Crichlow are amongst the substitutes, as tonight’s captain Yann Songo’o and Timi Odusina start.

Luke Hendrie is also welcomed back to the defence, with Levi Sutton returning to the starting 11 alongside Alex Gilliead, who missed the Salford victory after the birth of his first child.

Scott Banks is involved once again after suffering a short-time out due to a knock, and Jake Young is back amongst the starters.

Vadaine Oliver and Kian Harratt lead the from the front in hope of sending the Bantams to the second round.
