City's Sky Bet League One fixture with Southend United on Saturday (16 December 2017) will be officiated by match referee Keith Stroud.
Mr Stroud has taken charge of twelve games so far this season, with his first match of the campaign being the Bantams' 3-1 away win at Peterborough United.
City's match at the ABAX Stadium has been the only fixture to date so far this season Mr Stroud has been in the middle for that wasn't at Championship level.
Mr Stroud's most recent match action came at the weekend when he was the referee for Preston North End's 2-1 league victory at Burton Albion.
The two assistant referees at Southend this Saturday will be Matt Foley and John Flynn.
The fourth official at Roots Hall is scheduled to be Paul Harris.
