Rochdale vs bradford City
Kick Off: 7.45pm
at Spotland Stadium

City boss Phil Parkinson has been forced into one change from the side that started against Port Vale three days ago for his side's trip across the Pennines.


Former Rochdale favourite Gary Jones has unfortunately been forced to miss out on his return to Spotland Stadium due to a back spasm.


Jones, who originally picked up the issue with his back during last Tuesday's Capital One Cup tie with Burton Albion, played through the problem against Vale but it has now worsened.


Jones will be replaced by Ricky Ravenhill, who will also skipper the side in his place.


Ritchie Jones is named on the bench following Ravenhill's recall to give the midfielder his first involvement of the season with one of Phil Parkinson's match-day squads.
