Davies sweating on injury

Bradford defender Andrew Davies is waiting to learn the extent of his latest injury sustained in the weekend defeat to Stevenage.

The injury-plagued 29-year-old, who only recently returned from a four-month lay-off following knee surgery in October, was forced out of Saturday's 3-2 home defeat with a suspected calf problem shortly before half-time.

"There is clearly something there, but we haven't had any discussions of any great length about it," said City boss Phil Parkinson after Saturday's game.

"I think we'll just have to wait and see how he is."

Former Middlesbrough defender Davies, for whom Southampton paid BŁ1million in 2007, made only four appearances for Stoke in as many years from 2008 and missed a large chunk of last season due to a knee injury.

He sat out three months of Bradford's promotion-winning season and most of their Capital One Cup campaign before returning for the second half of the 5-0 defeat to Swansea in the final at Wembley.
