As expected, Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has made two changes to his side from the eleven that begun last Sunday's Emirates FA Cup first round tie at Aldershot Town.

With James Meredith and Reece Burke both away on international duty, Greg Leigh and Nathan Clarke have replaced the pair of them at left back and centre half respectively.

Lee Evans is also currently away with his country, meaning Gary Liddle and Billy Knott will remain together in City's central midfield.

Billy Clarke has retained his place in attack alongside James Hanson.

Given the number of players unavailable to City due to international duty or injury, Parkinson has named apprentice defender Luca Mellor among his substitutes. 

Having recovered from his own recent injury - a calf complaint - Frenchman Christopher Routis will join Mellor on the bench.
