Bradford skipper Simon Ramsden remains doubtful for the home clash with leaders Chesterfield.
Ramsden strained his thigh in training last week and missed Friday night's defeat at Port Vale, meaning he managed just one game following his comeback from a long-term hip/calf injury.
But Steve Williams returned to central defence alongside Luke Oliver against Vale, allowing Lewis Hunt to switch to right-back. Manager Peter Taylor is expected to retain the same back four, so Luke O'Brien should stay at left-back.
Lee Bullock is not quite ready to return following a hip problem, but could be included next Saturday, while fellow midfielder Tommy Doherty (ankle) is still out.
Striker James Hanson and midfielder David Syers also remain sidelined after sustaining respective groin and hamstring injuries in the recent win over Wycombe.
Deane Smalley returns from suspension as Chesterfield complete a run of four successive away league games.
Smalley was absent as the league leaders halted a five-match winless run with victory over Lincoln on Saturday.
But he comes back into the reckoning to partner leading scorer Craig Davies in attack.
Simon Ford is a doubt after he was forced off with a knock at Sincil Bank. Danny Whitaker replaced him against the Imps and the midfielder could fill in at centre-half, as he has several times this season, if Ford is unavailable.
Boss John Sheridan hopes to have on-loan defender Javan Vidal (virus) and midfielders Mark Allott (ankle) and Dwayne Mattis (calf) available after they missed out at the weekend.
