Wycombe striker Scott Rendell is pushing for a start when former manager Peter Taylor brings his Bradford side to Adams Park.

Rendell was handed a chance to impress in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy clash with Bristol Rovers in midweek and seized it as he hit a hat-trick.

However, Wycombe were smashed 6-3 by the Pirates and manager Gary Waddock is likely to make sweeping changes.

Chris Westwood, Andy Sandell, Gareth Ainsworth and Lewis Montrose were all given the night off in midweek but should return while Dave Winfield is back from a one-match ban.

Midfielder Scott Davies injured his groin in the FA Cup win at Hayes & Yeading last weekend and is back with parent club Reading while striker Jon-Paul Pitman is out until next year with a knee injury.

Taylor guided Wanderers to promotion in 2009 and should be handed a warm reception.

Bradford will be without central defender Steve Williams for the clash although Rob Kiernan and Richard Eckersley have been drafted in on loan to plug the gap.

Williams limped out of the FA Cup defeat at Colchester last week due to a groin strain and faces a three to four-week lay-off.

Watford`s Kiernan and Burnley`s Eckersley were both snapped up on Friday afternoon as Taylor went in search of cover, while he is also hoping Shane Duff can prove his fitness after missing the last seven games due to an Achilles injury.

Winger Omar Daley is still doubtful due to the tight hamstring that kept him out last Saturday, while Simon Ramsden (calf) and Michael Flynn (hernia) remain long-term absentees.

The Bantams have won four of their last five league games to climb up to 10th place in recent weeks.
