For the visitors Bradford Influential striker James Hanson is expected to miss out with a back problem.

Nathan Doyle is another player unlikely to feature with a groin problem. Oliver McBurnie is doubt as well due to recent illness.

Andy Gray is definitely out because of shingles and joins the likes of Matt Taylor, Kyel Reid and James Meredith on the sidelines.

Lewis Clarkson, however, has given City some positive news on the injury-front after returning to training this week following a knee problem.
