Capital One Cup Third Round
Bradford City vs Burton Albion
Kick Off: 7.45pm
at the Coral Windows Stadium

.Ricky Ravenhill has been given his first start of the season by Phil Parkinson as part of six changes made by the Bantams boss for City's Capital One Cup Third Round tie with Burton Albion

Ravenhill joins Gary Jones in City's midfield, taking Nathan Doyle's place in the process, while Stephen Darby is recalled into defence for Luke Oliver, who is not risked due to a slight shoulder problem.

Despite Ravenhill's recall, however, Jones will keep the captain's armband for tonight.

Darby's own recall means a move across to centre half for Rory McArdle. Along with Oliver, Jon McLaughlin and Kyel Reid will also sit the tie out due to minor knocks.

Matt Duke and Zavon Hines take their places respectively.

City's final two changes see Garry Thompson and Alan Connell paired together in attack.
