Bury Vs Bradford City, Tue 19 Jan 2010

Next Story

Bury boss Alan Knill will assess the fitness of Andy Morrell and David Worrall ahead of the home clash with Bradford.

Striker Morrell is nursing a slight groin injury and was withdrawn in the second half of Saturday`s 2-1 win at promotion rivals Bournemouth.

Midfielder Worrall had been ill prior to the game and was also taken off in the final quarter as a precautionary measure.

Knill is hopeful both men will be passed fit but the Shakers are still missing strikers Andy Bishop and Danny Carlton.

Bishop is edging closer to a return to training as he continues his recovery from an operation to repair both abductor muscles.

Fellow frontman Carlton is expected back in late January to early February as he recovers from a serious Achilles injury.

Bradford manager Stuart McCall could be tempted to hand Omar Daley his first start in nearly a year.

The Jamaica international, who ruptured a cruciate knee ligament in February 2009, has made three substitute appearances since regaining full fitness in December and following on-loan Simon Whaley's return to Norwich, McCall must decide if Daley is ready for a full 90 minutes.

Matt Glennon is hoping to make his debut. The 31-year-old goalkeeper, released by Huddersfield last week, signed a short-term deal in time for Saturday's postponed clash with Notts County and was expected to start in place of Jon McLaughlin.

Steve Williams will serve a one-game ban so Matt Clarke is likely to partner skipper Zesh Rehman at the heart of defence and striker Michael Boulding is also pushing for a return to the side.
