Bantams manager Mark Hughes is looking forward to his side’s all-Yorkshire clash with Harrogate Town this Saturday. 

Buoyed by an improved second-half performance which rescued a late point last time out against Grimsby, Hughes has called for his side to pick up where they left off. 

He said: “We are looking forward to the game. There are a lot of reasons to be excited for it.

“We finished strongly last time out, and have a number of players coming back, which will help.

“There are a few players I would like to have a look at from the last game.

“The guys who came on in the second half against Grimsby certainly staked a claim to play.

“There are a lot of reasons to look forward to the game, not least with it being a local derby, so let’s see what we can do.”

City have had a number of players missing through injury and other absences over the past few weeks, but Hughes is encouraged by the fact he is set to have more of his squad available over the coming weeks.

“We are getting a few back in terms of guys nearer to being involved, which is good,” he added.

“Clarke (Oduor) has come back from international duty, and is recovering from the travelling he has done.

“We are still waiting on Tyler (Smith), who took part in a little bit of training today, but Harry Chapman has been back out on the grass and Andy Cook is back out, getting back up to speed. 

“Sam Stubbs is okay, and trained well today.”
