Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has handed central defender Michael Nelson his City debut as one of two changes made from the eleven that secured their place in the Capital One Cup Final at Aston Villa last time out.
Nelson replaces Curtis Good in Parkinson's side, with Carl McHugh moving to left back. City's other change from the eleven that started at Villa Park sees Garry Thompson replace Zavon Hines on the right flank.
Hines moves down to City's bench as a result, where he will be joined by fellow attackers Kyel Reid, Andy Gray and Alan Connell.
Ryan Dickson, who missed the Aston Villa second leg tie with an injury, is fit enough to join them among Parkinson's substitutes at Highbury Stadium.
