TEAM NEWS | PORTSMOUTH (AWAY)

2 March 2019

Caretaker Manager Martin Drury has made two changes to City's starting XI for this Saturday's trip to Portsmouth.

With Adam Chicksen's partner due to give birth to their first child this weekend, the left back misses out on the match at Fratton Park.

Connor Wood comes back into the team as a result to make up part of the Bantams' back four.

Drury's other change sees Hope Akpan replace Billy Clarke.

Clarke moves down to the bench against Pompey following Akpan's recall.

Omari Patrick and Jake Maltby are also named among City's list of substitutes.

As confirmed earlier in the week, Paul Caddis will captain City for the Portsmouth fixture.
