Phil Parkinson takes his men to Adams Park where they will face fellow play off hopefuls Wycombe Wanderers.
Vital Quotes:Phil Parkinson
Parky stated in an article published in the telegraph and Argus
“Are we still good enough to mount a challenge? Yes, I think we are. But we`ve got to get our league form back on track, starting tonight.
“Wycombe are a good side. They`ve gone above us and quite deservedly so because they are on an extraordinary run.
Wycombe Wanderers Team News:
Wycombe are on the back of a 4-0 victory over York City on Saturday. I expect chairboys` gaffer Gareth Ainsworth to stick with the same starting eleven. Young defender Kortney Hause was not involved at Adams Park on Saturday with a knock and he is struggling to be fit in time for the clash with the Bantams so Leon Johnson is expected to retain his place on the bench.
Player to watch: Joel Grant
The goal getting wide midfield man will look to create cances for the Wanderers forwards, Grant also contributes from midfield with his fair share of goals.
Bradford City Team News:
Carl McHugh will be looking to regain his place in the Bantams eleven having been rest by Phil Parkinson at the weekend.
Bantams are missing James Meredith who is still recovering from Glandular Fever, also missing is big central defender Rory McArdle who is seeking to overcome an ankle injury.#
I expect Andrew Davies to come off the bench tonight as he continues his recovery from a long term injury.
We have to show more going forward and the lack of goals is a great concern. I feel we will keep the same midfield as Saturday and hope that our fortunes in front of goal change.
Parkinson could look to change the attack with Gray for Hanson.
Player to watch: Nahki Wells
The leading scorer needs a league goal to get him up and running again. Once he gets on I feel he will push on towards 20 for the season.
