FA Cup Quarter Final Replay
Reading vs Bradford City
Kick Off: 7.45pm
at the Madejski Stadium
Just two days after City's league match at Notts County, Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has made six changes to his starting eleven for this Monday's eagely-anticipated FA Cup Quarter Final replay at Reading.
With Jak Alnwick cup-tied, Ben Williams returns in goal for City. Andrew Davies remains sidelined due to an arm injury so Alan Sheehan comes back into the side to partner Rory McArdle in central defence.
In midfield, Andy Halliday and Filipe Morais are both recalled and will play alongside Gary Liddle, meaning Matthew Dolan and Christopher Routis move down to the bench.
Billy Knott will play in attacking midfield role just behind a strike-force of Jon Stead and James Hanson.
