Walsall vs Bradford City
Kick Off: 3.00pm
at the Banks's Stadium


Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has made two changes to the side that begun last weekend's dramatic win over Shrewsbury Town.

After missing the Shrewsbury match due to illness, Rory McArdle back comes in for Luke Oliver, while Mark Yeates replaces the injured Nahki Wells.

Yeates is expected to be the link between City's midfield and attack this Saturday by playing just behind James Hanson up front at Walsall's Banks's Stadium.

Fresh from receiving his international clearance, Bantams new boy Caleb Folan is on the bench. Jason Kennedy is also among the substitutes for City today.
