Bury boss Alan Knill will again be without striker Andy Bishop for the home clash with Bradford.

The highly-rated forward has been struggling with tendonitis in recent weeks and has missed the Shakers' last seven games.

Midfielder Damien Mozika is rated as 50-50 following a challenge by Marvin Morgan during Saturday`s 3-1 win at Aldershot which saw the Shots man red carded.

Knill has an otherwise full-strength squad and looks set to continue with on-loan Stockport goalkeeper Owain fon Williams between the posts.

The Wales international made his debut in Saturday`s win and Knill said: "Owain Fon Williams only came in on Thursday but he did okay.

"He looked a little rusty because he's not played a competitive game for a while, but it's to be expected."

Bradford could be without striker James Hanson if their appeal against his dismissal on Saturday is unsuccessful.

Hanson was sent off following an altercation in Saturday's home win over Oxford with visiting defender Jake Wright and could start a three-match ban, so Jason Price, on loan from Carlisle, is on stand-by to partner Omar Daley, currently operating in a central role, if the appeal fails.

Centre-half Shane Duff is still out with an Achilles problem, but manager Peter Taylor does not have any other new injury or suspension problems following his side's biggest win of the season on Saturday, 5-0 against Oxford.

David Syers and Louis Moult both staked their claim for a return to the starting line-up with late goals, but Taylor is not expected to make any unforced changes as his side chase a fourth win in five league matches.

Lenny Pidgeley will continue in goal after making his debut last weekend, while Michael Flynn (hernia), Simon Ramsden (calf), Gareth Evans (fractured wrist) and Robbie Threlfall (back) remain sidelined.
