Bradford face a race against time to re-sign goalkeeper Lenny Pidgeley ahead of their home clash with Bury.

Pidgeley's short-term deal expired on New Year's Day and although the former Chelsea and Watford keeper is keen to extend his stay, he may be forced to miss out if the paperwork is not completed in time. Jon McLaughlin is on standby.

Veteran midfielder Lee Bullock is nursing a knock received in the New Year's Day win at Lincoln and remains doubtful, with Tommy Doherty ready to step in if he fails to make it after starting on the substitutes' bench on Saturday.

Striker Jason Price and Omar Daley were also on the bench at Lincoln and could feature if Taylor opts to freshen up his line-up for a third game in seven days.

Bury boss Alan Knill has to decide who he will start in goal at Valley Parade.

Knill opted to retain Owain Fon Williams between the posts for Saturday's 2-2 draw with Macclesfield.

That was despite having Cameron Belford back in contention, who was in the matchday squad after suffering a fractured cheekbone.

The Shakers manager will now decide whether to call on the 22-year-old after being rested for the weekend's encounter.

Midfielder David Worrall missed out due to flu and he will be checked on before Bury head across the Pennines.

Tom Lees made the bench following illness of his own and the on-loan Leeds defender will be eying a start after some sloppy defending afforded the Silkmen a two-goal lead before Ryan Lowe and Lenell John-Lewis saved Bury.
