No reaction for Davies

14 February 2013

Andrew Davies should be ready and fit for selection for this weekend's trip to AFC Wimbledon believes Bantams boss Phil Parkinson, after the giant defender came through unscathed from his comeback match at Wycombe Wanderers on Tuesday.

The 27 year-old made a welcome return to the heart of City's defence for their impressive 3-0 away win at Wycombe after four months out due to knee ligament damage.

With City leading comfortably at the time, the former Middlesbrough and Stoke City centre half was taken off a few minutes from the end at Adams Park, although Parkinson insists this move was purely precautionary.

Thankfully, Davies also seems to have suffered no ill effects after his first outing back from injury and will train with the rest of Parkinson's squad tomorrow (Friday) before they make the journey south to London.

Given that Davies' Wycombe outing was his first match since October though, Parkinson has hinted that the defender might not be ready just yet to start two games in a week.

"It was great to see Andrew out there again," said Parkinson.

"He hasn't had a reaction to that performance on Tuesday. His knee seems fine. 

"He has been off today (Thursday) with most of the rest of the squad, but we'll see him tomorrow.

"Once again though, it will be a case of myself and Steve (Parkin) picking the team that we feel has the ability to play at the same level as Tuesday again. There are certainly a few decisions we have to make.

"(It's a case of) whether we freshen the pack up again in regards a few players or not."
