TEAM NEWS | BARNSLEY (CHECKATRADE TROPHY)

13 November 2018

Midfielders Jim O'Brien and Daniel Devine return to City's starting XI, as Bantams Head Coach David Hopkin makes a number of changes to his side for this Tuesday's Checkatrade Trophy group game at Barnsley (kick off 7:30pm).

Devine and O'Brien, both of whom returned from injury at Aldershot Town in the Emirates FA Cup at the weekend, are two of six alterations in total made by Hopkin for the game at Oakwell.

Sherwin Seedorf, Adam Chicksen, Josh Wright and Kai Bruenker are also recalled for the trophy contest.

Apprentices Reece Staunton and Eliot Goldthorp - who have featured for City already in this competition this season - miss out, however.

Goldthorp is suspended after picking up two bookings in City's first two group games, while Staunton is currently away in Spain with Republic of Ireland Under 18s.

Fit-again goalkeeper Ben Wilson is named on City's bench.

Hopkin's men go into tonight's final Group F encounter knowing that a victory by at least a two-goal margin will secure progression into the knockout stages, pipping Barnsley to second spot in the process.
