Bantams boss Stuart McCall has acknowledged that the arrival of new signing Adam Thompson, plus the return of Shay McCartan, will give City more options for the visit to table-toppers Peterborough United this Saturday.
After signing on a season-long loan from Bury last week, Thompson made his first appearance at City's training ground this Thursday following a period away on international duty with Northern Ireland alongside new Bantams team-mate McCartan.
Peterborough are the early season pace-setters after four wins and a draw from their first five games, but McCall's men will be buoyed by last weekend's impressive home victory over Bristol Rovers.
McCall said: "We will have a little chat before the weekend to look at whether we change things.
"Shay has come back from the internationals looking really sharp.
"Adam has settled into training today (Thursday) really well.
"He looks comfortable straight away, and he gives us the option of playing three centre halves
"He seems a very level-headed lad, he trained well, and he has settled quickly into the environment here.
"He is desperate to be involved now."
