TEAM NEWS | BLACKBURN ROVERS (H)

19 August 2017

Bantams boss Stuart McCall has made just one change to his side for the visit of Blackburn Rovers to the Northern Commercials Stadium.

Following last Saturday's victory at Gillingham, McCall has brought Shay McCartan back into his starting XI.

McCartan, who netted twice in a behind-closed-doors friendly at Wigan Athletic in midweek, replaces Alex Jones in City's line up.

Jones is included on the Bantams' bench for the Rovers fixture, while there is also the welcome sight of Charlie Wyke's name listed among McCall's substitutes as well.

Wyke has been out of action since the early stages of pre-season with a hamstring injury, but the imposed forward made a return to training this week.
