McCALL GIVES CLARKE FITNESS UPDATE

28 November 2016

Bantams boss Stuart McCall gave supporters an update on the fitness of striker Billy Clarke following Saturday's 1-0 loss at Swindon Town.

Clarke has missed City's last three games, including the weekend defeat Swindon, after recently picking up a calf problem.

McCall says the latest scan on the injury has confirmed a minor tear in the muscle, with the forward now facing a battle to be fit for City's next league game at home to Charlton Athletic in two weeks' time.

The Bantams chief said: "He got the knock in the Accrington FA Cup game, a bleed on the calf, but was then able to play in the Rochdale match the week after.

"Since then, we've had him scanned again and it has revealed a little tear in his calf.

"Maybe that has had something to do with the way he has been running or trying to protect it recently but there is a small tear there.

"Whether he will be fit for our next league game in two weeks, we're not too sure at the moment."
