Bradford City Vs Oxford Utd, Sat 30 Oct 2010

Published Add your comment

Lee Hendrie and Tom Adeyemi will both return to Bradford's squad for the home clash with Oxford.

Hendrie, who missed last week's defeat at Burton due to a hamstring strain, is expected to start, while Adeyemi (ankle) is likely to be named on the bench.

Jason Price, on loan from Carlisle, or James Hanson will make way for Hendrie, with Omar Daley switching back to a more central role up front.

Manchester United defenders Oliver Gill and Reece Brown have both returned to Old Trafford, so Luke Oliver will return to central defence and Zesh Rehman at right-back.

Shane Duff is ruled out as he has suffered a setback in his return from an Achilles injury and long-term absentees Michael Flynn (hernia), Simon Ramsden (calf), Gareth Evans (fractured wrist) and Robbie Threlfall (back) remain sidelined.

Oxford should welcome Damian Batt back into the squad for the trip.

The defender has not played since the end of August after suffering an ankle injury, but he is back to full fitness and played for the reserves in midweek.

On-loan midfielder Josh Payne is set to continue in boss Chris Wilder's plans after agreeing a pre-contractual agreement with the Us on a two-and-a-half-year deal.

Oxford bounced back from two consecutive defeats last week when they beat lowly Northampton, and Wilder could keep faith with the same team at Valley Parade.

Jake Wright returned in that game with the Cobblers following an injury, and after coming through unscathed, he will again feature.
