Hereford United Vs Bradford City, Sat 20 Mar 2010

Next Story

New loan signing Lewis Young is in line to make his Hereford debut in the home clash against Bradford.

The striker, who can also play out wide, arrived at Edgar Street on a one-month deal from Watford on Friday and will be keen to emulate the success of older brother Ashley.

Attacking midfielder Gavin McCallum faces a fitness test having been forced off with a knee injury just before half-time in Tuesday`s 1-0 defeat to Morecambe.

McCallum is confident the medial problem is not serious and is optimistic about his chances of a speedy recovery, although whether that comes before the weekend is another matter.

The Bulls are desperate for points as they slip every closer into a relegation dogfight and temporary boss Graham Turner continues to search for the right formula.

He made two changes for the visit of Morecambe in midweek, Edrissa Sonko and Richard Rose coming in for Craig King and Daniel Preston, to add to the four made in his first game back at the helm against Lincoln.

Bradford's on-loan striker Ryan Kendall could be handed his debut.

The 20-year-old arrived for an initial month from Hull this week and is hoping to play some part at Edgar Street.

The Bantams will be without injured defender Simon Ramsden, who was forced out of the midweek win over Aldershot at half-time due to a calf strain and is not expected to recover in time. Jonathan Bateson replaced him on Tuesday night and is likely to continue.

Boss Taylor, who has no other new injury or suspension problems, is not expected to make any other changes.

Recent loan signing Luke Oliver made his debut against Aldershot alongside Matt Clarke at the heart of defence and is likely to retain his place while Mike Flynn will play just behind striker James Hanson in an advanced midfield role again.

Strikers Gareth Evans and Mark McCammon and defender Steve Williams are all pushing for recalls to the starting line-up.
