Bantams boss Stuart McCall has brought Adam Chicksen back into City's starting XI for the first time since the opening day.
The left back, who fractured his cheekbone in the opening Blackpool fixture, will wear a protective mask during this Saturday's game.
From the eleven that began last weekend's draw at Walsall, skipper Romain Vincelot has been brought in as well and will also start his first league game since the Blackpool encounter.
The Frenchman made his return from suspension in Tuesday's Checkatrade Trophy win at Chesterfield.
After receiving international clearance, new goalkeeper Lukas Raeder has been named on City's bench.
