With Josh Cullen picking up a strain in training on Thursday, the fit-again Nathaniel Knight-Percival comes back into the side in his place.
The minor injury for Josh means the young loanee midfielder misses out on the one-year anniversary of him first joining up with the Bantams.
Cullen's injury also means a move up field for skipper Romain Vincelot to partner fellow Frenchman Timothee Dieng in central midfield.
Jordy Hiwula and Alex Gilliead, who celebrates his 21st birthday today, remain on the Bantams' bench.
