Bradford skipper Zesh Rehman is doubtful for his side's home clash with Yorkshire rivals Rotherham.

The central defender missed last week's win at Darlington with a hamstring strain and could face a late fitness test.

If Rehman fails to make it, Steve Williams will continue his partnership with Matt Clarke at the heart of defence.

Otherwise, manager Stuart McCall has no other new injury or suspension problems but he must decide whether to recall striker Gareth Evans to his starting line-up or stick with Michael Boulding alongside James Hanson.

Boulding made his first start in a month-and-a-half at Darlington but made way for Evans just after the hour.

Veteran forward Peter Thorne and midfielder Steven O'Leary remain sidelined.

Rotherham boss Ronnie Moore will welcome back Adam Rundle.

The on-loan winger is back in contention for a place in the starting line-up after being cup-tied for the FA Cup second-round replay defeat by Luton in midweek.

But the Millers are still without defender Nick Fenton, who will serve the second game of his four-match suspension this weekend.

Long-term absentees Paul Warne (ankle), Dale Tonge (foot) and Andy Liddell (Achilles) remain on the sidelines and the trio are a few weeks away from a return to the first team.

Moore's men will be looking to get their promotion campaign back on track after a poor run of four successive defeats in all competitions.
