Accrington boss John Coleman could make changes to his starting line-up for the home clash against Bradford.

The Stanley boss has no fresh injury or suspension concerns going into the game but may be tempted to mix things up after two successive draws.

Striker Rory Boulding was handed a 24-minute run-out during the goalless draw with Oxford last week and could be given a chance to lead the attack.

Midfielder Charlie Barnett, who endured an impressive start to the season before injuries curtailed his progress, may also be recalled.

Fellow midfielder Ray Putterill is also an option for Coleman but defender Kevin Long, who has missed a large chunk of the season with a broken toe, looks set to be be among the substitutes again.

Stanley are currently outside the play-off places on goal difference and a win could lift them back into the top seven.

Bradford winger Kevin Ellison is hoping to return to contention.

Ellison, on loan from Rotherham, has missed the last six games due to a thigh injury but could be included in the squad.

Midfielder Tom Adeyemi is unavailable though. The 19-year-old missed the midweek draw with Burton because of a similar problem and has returned to parent club Norwich for treatment.

Manager Peter Jackson made five changes for Tuesday night's 1-1 draw, with winger Omar Daley, defender Steve Williams, striker James Hanson and goalkeeper Lenny Pidgeley among those hoping to retain their places in the starting line-up.

Another, defender Lewis Hunt, was handed a surprise recall against Burton after being told it was unlikely he would play again this season due to contractual reasons and he should continue.

Striker Jake Speight is hoping for a recall after stepping off the bench to fire the equaliser in midweek.
