Bradford City Vs Aldershot Town, Sat 13 Mar 2010

Next Story

Bradford manager Peter Taylor is not expected to make too many changes for his side's home clash with Aldershot.

Taylor has no new injury or suspension problems and is expected to pick his starting line-up from the same 18-man squad.

Winger Omar Daley and striker Mark McCammon were both second-half substitutes in the midweek defeat at Port Vale and could have impressed Taylor sufficiently to warrant starting places.

Recent signing Luke Oliver may have to wait a while longer for his full debut as Matt Clarke and Steve Williams are in good form at the heart of defence, while striker Gavin Grant is still struggling with an ankle injury.

James O'Brien was scheduled to appear for the reserves this week following nose surgery, but took a knock in the face and will rest as a precaution.

Mikhael Jaimez-Ruiz will return to the Aldershot goal.

The Venezuelan was dropped to the bench for the last eight games by manager Kevin Dillon but will be recalled after on-loan Stephen Henderson returned to Bristol City.

Dillon also has problems in defence after left-back Andy Sandell pulled his hamstring during the 2-0 defeat at home to Burton last Saturday.

Anthony Charles is one option to fill in but Dillon is loathe to move the centre-half as Dave Winfield is still struggling with a hamstring injury of his own.

Striker Marvin Morgan may return from a back injury, but midfielder John Halls is not expected to return this season after complications hampered his recovery from groin surgery.
