TEAM NEWS: ACCRINGTON v CITY

Mark Hughes has named two changes to his Bantams to take on Accrington Stanley in Round One of the Carabao Cup this evening.

Sam Stubbs makes his first appearance of the campaign after returning from injury and replacing the suspended Daniel Oyegoke.

The second swap also comes in defence as Ash Taylor, who came off with a knock in the defeat to Crawley Town over the weekend, makes way for Matty Platt.

Carabao Cup regulations allow for nine substitutes so there is potential for Kevin McDonald to make his debut in City colours, after arriving earlier this summer.

Timi Odusina and Luke Hendrie are also named in the matchday squad for the first time this campaign.
