Shrewsbury v Bradford preview

Team news for Saturday's League One clash between Shrewsbury Town and Bradford City at the Greenhous Meadow.

Aaron Wildig is in line to return for Shrewsbury when they entertain Bradford.

The midfielder has been on the sidelines since early January with a quad injury but is back in training and Shrews boss Mike Jackson has revealed he could be on the bench.

Nathaniel Mendez-Laing is a doubt with the hamstring problem which has kept him out of the last two games, while Luke Summerfield (thigh) also faces a race against time to be fit.

Struggling Shrewsbury will bid for a first win in six games without Tom Bradshaw (knee).

Bradford striker James Hanson is expected to overcome a back problem in time for the game at Shrewsbury.

Hanson has been carefully monitored this week after having back spasms and could face a late fitness test, while skipper Gary Jones has also been under the watchful eye of manager Phil Parkinson and his staff.

Jones returned to the bench for last week's home draw against Gillingham following a virus and is expected to be among the substitutes again as Matty Dolan, on loan from Middlesbrough, provided adequate cover.

Defenders James Meredith and Matty Taylor (both foot), winger Raffaele De Vita (hip/groin) plus midfielder Kyel Reid (knee) all remain long-term absentees.
