MILLWALL MATCH PREVIEW/EARLY TEAM NEWS

14 May 2016

The Bantams entertain Millwall this Sunday (15 May 2016) at the Coral Windows Stadium in the first leg of their Sky Bet League 1 Play-Off semi-final.

Supporters are respectfully reminded that the scheduled kick off on Sunday is 12:15pm.

Any fans without valid tickets for Sunday's match must purchase them before match-day. There will be no pay on the day option on Sunday.

The Bantams Ticket Office is open 9:00am until 4:00pm this Saturday (14 May). City supporters can also purchase tickets online (please click HERE).

Match tickets are now on general sale for this Sunday's first leg. Over 16,000 tickets had been sold in the home sections of the Coral Windows Stadium as of this Friday evening.

During the half-time interval on Sunday, City's reserve/development squad are expected to receive the league title for winning the Final Third Development League - West Division this season.

The club would like to also remind supporters of the road closures in place around the Coral Windows Stadium on Sunday (please click HERE).

The football club can confirm stadium entry details as well for the game (please click HERE).

In terms of team news, Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has doubts over Reece Burke (groin) and James Hanson (calf) going into Sunday's mouth-watering game.

Both Burke and Hanson will be given as late as possible to prove their fitness ahead of kick off.

Billy Clarke could also miss out after undergoing surgery during the week to repair a fractured cheekbone. 

City are hopeful of getting a protective mask fitted for Clarke but it still looks more likely for the Irishman to next feature in the away leg at The Den rather than this Sunday's opening game.

Fellow striker Steven Davies is now back free from suspension following a recent three-match ban, and the 28 year-old is expected to shake off a minor neck problem to put himself up for selection.

For visitors Millwall, right back Mahlon Romeo will begin his own three-match ban at the weekend following a red card at Gillingham last Sunday.

Veteran utility player Carlos Edwards is favourite to fill in for Romeo, with Sid Nelson, Tony Craig and Jimmy Abdou, usually a midfielder, also mentioned as possible replacements.

After coming off the bench to net a dramatic late winner at Gillingham, former FC Halifax striker Lee Gregory is pushing for a recall providing he can prove his fitness following recent stomach surgery.

If he isn't deemed fit enough to start, Aiden O'Brien is likely to keep his place in attack alongside Steve Morison.

Shaun Cummings (knee) remains a long-term absentee for the Lions.
