Bradford City vs Fleetwood Town
Kick off: 7.45pm

Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has made four changes to his line up for City's first home match of the season from the eleven that started at Gillingham three days ago.

After appearing as a late substitute at the weekend, Andrew Davies will start in central defence alongside Luke Oliver. Rory McArdle moves to right back, meaning Stephen Darby will start the match from the bench.

Zavon Hines has also been handed a starting berth - his first for the club - with Nathan Doyle also joining him in midfield. Garry Thompson and Will Atkinson are named alongside Darby among City's substitutes as a result.

Parkinson's fourth and final change sees Nahki Wells replace Alan Connell, who also moves down to the bench, to partner James Hanson in attack.
