Bradford v Yeovil preview

Team news for Saturday's League One clash between Bradford City and Yeovil Town at Valley Parade.

Bradford midfielder Gary Liddle is hoping to return to contention for the visit of Yeovil.

Liddle sustained an ankle injury in the recent Capital One Cup win against Leeds and although an injection enabled him to play 90 minutes in last Saturday's win at Rochdale, he missed the midweek Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat at Oldham.

Manager Phil Parkinson, who has no new injury or suspension problems, is expected to shuffle his squad after making five changes on Tuesday night.

Midfielder Billy Knott, strikers Billy Clarke and Mason Bennett, plus winger Filipe Morais are all hoping to return to the starting line-up as Bradford chase their fourth league win of the season.

Yeovil will assess the fitness of captain Joe Edwards before they make the trip.

The Glovers midfielder was sporting a protective boot on Tuesday night after a foot injury ruled him out of their 3-1 defeat to Portsmouth in the Trophy, leaving him as a doubt for the Bantams clash.

And boss Gary Johnson remains without a number of players. James Berrett (thigh), Liam Davis (wrist), and Joe Grant (foot) will all miss out once more along with Simon Gillett who looks set for a few weeks on the sidelines after suffering a foot injury last weekend.

Midfielder Jack Price will hope to make his first start for the club having arrived on loan from Wolves.
