Aldershot Town Vs Bradford City, Sat 19 Dec 2009

Next Story

Aldershot manager Kevin Dillon will be without Anthony Charles through suspension for the visit of Bradford to the Recreation Ground.

Charles was sent off for a professional foul in last weekend's 6-1 mauling at the hands of Burton Albion.

Dillon labelled the 28-year-old's red card as "ridiculous" but has vowed to get back to winning ways against the Bantams.

"It was a blip, I'm hoping it was," he told Press Association Sport. "We've gone through everything, took it apart.

"It was one of those very rare scenarios of conceding six goals, four were within about 10 minutes.

"But we're definitely going to change our approach."

Kirk Hudson and Marvin Morgan both miss out with knee injuries, while Dean Howells continues to struggle with a hip complaint.

Bradford winger Omar Daley will be included in the squad and is hoping to make his first league appearance since February.

Daley, who damaged both his lateral and cruciate knee ligaments, played the last 20 minutes in the midweek Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat at Carlisle and will start on the substitutes' bench.

Fellow winger Simon Whaley, on loan from Norwich, was cup-tied on Tuesday and is expected to return while central defender Steve Williams, who has missed the last two games due to a hamstring injury, is also back in contention.

Club skipper Zesh Rehman returned from a hamstring problem in midweek and should retain his place but striker Michael Boulding is expected to be sidelined for between two and four weeks due to an ankle injury.
