Parkinson looking at his options

15 February 2013

Bantams boss Phil Parkinson hasn't ruled out making further changes to City's starting line up at AFC Wimbledon this Saturday in his pursuit of the club's second away win of the week.

Parkinson made as many as five alterations to his line up for Tuesday's night win at Wycombe Wanderers, a move that saw striking duo James Hanson and Nahki Wells start the game at Adams Park on the bench.

Defender Rory McArdle is once again ruled out as he continues his battle to be fit for next weekend's Capital One Cup Final, but Parkinson is expected to have the same group of players at his disposal as he did for the trip to Wycombe in the week.

With the City chief admitting that places within his side are up for grabs, Parkinson is happy to have several options available to him ahead of the Bantams' trip south this weekend.

Parkinson said: "We certainly have competition for places at the moment. That is obviously a good thing.

"We will be selecting the best side we can on Saturday. 

"There will be no thoughts about next week or the week's ahead. We will select the side we think we'll give us the best possible chance of picking up a good result on Saturday.

"Myself and Steve (Parkin) just need to think about whether we want to freshen things up again in regards a few places within the team."
