TEAM NEWS | PETERBOROUGH UNITED (FA CUP)

11 December 2018

Bantams manager David Hopkin has made three changes to his side for this Tuesday's Emirates FA Cup second round replay with Peterborough United at the Northern Commercials Stadium.

Ben Wilson replaces Richard O'Donnell between the sticks, with Nathaniel Knight-Percival and Hope Akpan also recalled into Hopkin's starting XI.

Knight-Percival is back available to Hopkin after missing the last three games through suspension, while Wilson is set to make his home debut in goal for the Bantams.

The shot-stopper's only previous outing of the campaign so far came in City's Carabao Cup first round encounter at Macclesfield Town back in August.

Akpan is back in City's side after making his return from a hip injury as a second half substitute at Plymouth Argyle on Saturday.

O'Donnell, Eoin Doyle and Karl Henry - the three players to move out of the team from the Plymouth game - are all named on City's bench.

Connor Wood is also included on the Bantams' bench instead of Daniel Devine.
