npower League 2
Bradford City vs Barnet
Kick Off: 3.00pm
at the Coral Windows Stadium
Alan Connell has been rewarded for his superb equaliser at Accrington Stanley last weekend by being handed his first competitive start at the Coral Windows Stadium since joining the club.
Connell, who replaces Will Atkinson in City's line up, will partner James Hanson in attack as Phil Parkinson reverts back to a more familiar 4-4-2 formation after using a 4-3-3 set up at Accrington seven days ago.
Parkinson's only other change to the starting eleven from the Accrington match sees Rory McArdle return to right back at the expense of Stephen Darby.
Darby, along with Atkinson, has been named among City's substitutes, however.
They will be both joined on the bench by the returning Ricky Ravenhill, who made his comeback in the reserves on Wednesday after a six week lay-off due to a knee injury.
