City Head Coach David Hopkin has made two changes to his side for this Saturday's visit of Sunderland to the Northern Commercials Stadium.

With Jim O'Brien sidelined through a hamstring injury, Jack Payne has been restored to Hopkin's starting XI.

The Bantams' second alteration from the side that began Tuesday's win at AFC Wimbledon sees David Ball replace Kai Bruenker.

Eoin Doyle, who missed the Wimbledon victory in midweek, is still sidelined, meaning Anthony O'Connor will keep the skipper's armband.

After missing City's last five league and cup games, club captain Josh Wright has been deemed fit enough for a place on the bench.
