Bradford City vs Colchester United
Kick Off: 7.45pm
at the Coral Windows Stadium

Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has been forced into making one change from the starting XI that began Saturday's win at Blackpool.

With Reece Burke ruled out after picking up a twisted ankle at Bloomfield Road at the weekend, Nathan Clarke has been brought back into the side to take his place at centre half.

Despite taking a whack to his calf during the Blackpool game though, Wes Thomas will continue in attack alongside James Hanson after passing a fitness test.

Along with Burke, Steven Davies (knee) is also sidelined following an injury sustained in the Blackpool win, meaning the duo of Christopher Routis and Jamie Proctor are both named on the bench.
