After coming off the bench to combine for City's winner over Accrington Stanley on Boxing Day, the duo of Kyel Reid and Alan Connell have both been rewarded with starting berths for the visit of Rochdale.
Connell and Reid have taken the places of Zavon Hines and Will Atkinson, both of whom are named among City's substitutes for the Dale fixture.
With Connell promoted up into Phil Parkinson's starting eleven and Nahki Wells still ruled out due to illness, Ross Hannah is also included on the Bantams bench after returning from a recent loan spell with Grimsby Town.
Along with the absent Wells, Curtis Good is also still sidelined because of a virus and Carl McHugh misses out once again with a tight calf.
