SUNDERLAND TEAM NEWS

22 July 2017

Bantams boss Stuart McCall has named arguably the strongest team available to him for the visit of Sunderland to the Northern Commercials Stadium this Saturday for the club's latest pre-season friendly.

For City's first match on home soil since the summer break, McCall is without the likes of Charlie Wyke, Alex Jones and Timothee Dieng, but skipper Romain Vincelot is back involved after missing Wednesday's win at Eccleshill United with a stiff ankle.

Summer signings Shay McCartan, Dominic Poleon, Jake Reeves and Adam Chicksen will all get their first taste of Valley Parade as a Bradford City player after being named in City's starting XI.

Fellow off-season recruit Paul Taylor could feature in the second period as a substitute.

Youngsters Omari Patrick and Daniel Pybus might receive some game-time as well from the bench after impressing in pre-season so far.
