Bradford's new loan signings from Manchester United, Reece Brown and Oliver Gill, will both be included in City's squad for home clash with Morecambe.

Manager Peter Taylor could hand a start to teenager Brown, while Gill is expected to be among the substitutes.

Taylor has no new injury or suspension worries, but defenders Lewis Hunt (knee) and Robbie Threlfall (back) are still out, with the former expected to be sidelined for up to two months.

Winger Leon Osborne missed out in midweek through illness and will be hoping to force his way back into the squad, but midfielder Michael Flynn (double hernia) and striker James Hanson (hamstring) are both at least a fortnight away from a return to first-team action.

Skipper Simon Ramsden has suffered a setback in his rehabilitation from a calf injury and remains a long-term absentee.

Morecambe boss Sammy McIlroy is likely to be without defensive duo Will Haining and Chris McCready.

The pair left the 2-2 draw with Barnet last weekend in the first half with hamstring problems and are expected to remain sidelined for another week at least and therefore, will not feature for the second successive game after missing the 4-1 defeat against Bury.

Paul Scott and Craig Stanley could be set to continue but McIlroy may look at other options after expressing his anger at the way his side were defeated in midweek and Laurence Wilson could be given an opportunity to shine at the back following a short substitute appearance.

Adam Rundle and James Spencer will be hoping for starts after also being given an opportunity to make an impression.
