BIG MATCH PREVIEW - SCUNTHORPE UNITED (HOME)

21 November 2017

Following Saturday's tremendous away success at Wigan Athletic, Stuart McCall's Bantams return to the Northern Commercials Stadium this Tuesday (21 November 2017) evening against Scunthorpe United.

The weekend win at Wigan thanks to Tyrell Robinson's late stunner moved City back up into third position in the League One table.

Scunthorpe enjoyed an impressive away-day victory themselves on Saturday, with the 3-0 win at Northampton Town meaning the Iron are currently just one point and one place behind the Bantams in the division.

Tuesday's game is scheduled to see the first return of Rory McArdle to Valley Parade after five years with the Bantams.

McArdle, who is currently the Scunthorpe skipper, left City for Glanford Park last summer following a hugely successful period for the defender with the Bantams.

Team News

Bradford City
Midfielder Timothee Dieng is a doubt for the Bantams as the Frenchman continues to recover from a hamstring injury.

After Saturday's encouraging display at the DW Stadium, McCall could be tempted to stick with the same side for the visit of Scunthorpe.

McCall has made changes in the past for previous Tuesday night fixtures, however, with the likes of Dominic Poleon, Alex Jones and Tyrell Robinson all possible options for the Bantams boss.

Adam Chicksen remains sidelined with a thigh problem.

Scunthorpe United
Former Bantams midfielder Josh Morris is expected to missing for a return date with his old club due to a hamstring injury.

Luke Williams (hamstring) and Sam Mantom (groin) are also scheduled to miss out at the Northern Commercials Stadium.

Strikers Simon Church and Jonathan Margetts are two other members of the Iron squad not likely to be involved in the Iron's match-day squad because of injury.
