Capital One Cup Fourth Round

Wigan Athletic vs Bradford City

Kick Off: 7.45pm

at the DW Stadium


City boss Phil Parkinson has made six changes to his previous starting line up at Burton Albion for the Bantams' mouth-watering Capital One Cup at Premiership outfit Wigan Athletic this Tuesday.


With Luke Oliver and Andrew Davies injured, Ricky Ravenhill suspended and Craig Forsyth cup-tied, most of the alterations have been forced upon Parkinson, however.


The City defence named at the DW Stadium is the same back four that finished the Burton game on Saturday, meaning Stephen Darby and Carl McHugh are brought in for Oliver and Davies.


Zavon Hines takes Forsyth's place on the left wing, while Will Atkinson is brought into central midfield to replace Ravenhill.


City's final two changes see Matt Duke put in goal and Nahki Wells return up front alongside James Hanson after serving out his one-match ban at the weekend.


With Gary Jones named among City's substitutes, Nathan Doyle has been given the captain's armband.


Apprentices Scott Brown, Forrayah Bass and Louie Swain join Jones on City's bench.
