npower League 2
Bradford City vs Cheltenham Town
Kick Off: 3.00pm
at the Coral Windows Stadium
Twenty-four hours after signing on loan for the Bantams, new winger Craig Forsyth is handed his City debut by Phil Parkinson for the visit of Cheltenham Town.
The 23 year-old will start from the left flank, replacing Will Atkinson in the side in the process, as Parkinson reverts back to a more traditional 4-4-2 formation after starting with a 4-3-1-2 set-up against York City last weekend.
Starting a home league game for the first time in City colours, Garry Thompson will operate from the opposite wing.
Parkinson's third and final change from his York line up sees Rory McArdle, now back from international duty, return to right back at the expense of Stephen Darby.
