Bradford City vs Walsall
Sky Bet League 1
Saturday 21 February 2015
Kick Off: 3.00pm
at the Coral Windows Stadium
Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has been forced into making three changes to his line up for this Saturday's visit of Walsall to the Coral Windows Stadium.
With James Hanson, Filipe Morais and Andrew Davies all ruled out injured, Parkinson has brought in the trio of Billy Knott, Jon Stead and Gary MacKenzie.
Stead has been passed fit to play despite missing Wednesday's win at Leyton Orient with an ankle wound. James Meredith is also included after shaking off a recent foot problem.
For MacKenzie, this afternoon's match will be his first at Valley Parade for City and his full debut for the club following his loan move from Blackpool at the start of the month.
With Knott expected to join Gary Liddle in central midfield, Andy Halliday is likely to start today's game on the right wing.
After being recalled from a loan spell at Vanarama Conference side Chester FC, Oliver McBurnie is named among the Bantams' substitutes.
Matthew Dolan is also back on the City bench for this afternoon.
