Aldershot Town Vs Bradford City, Tue 2 Mar 2010


Danny Hylton will continue to lead the line for Aldershot when they host Bradford.

Hylton was handed a rare start in attack at Chesterfield on Saturday and responded by scoring the only goal to give Kevin Dillon's men a fine win.

First-choice striker Marvin Morgan remains a doubt with the back injury which forced him out of the Chesterfield win so Hylton should start with new signings Omer Riza and Damian Spencer on the bench.

On-loan Bristol City forward Marlon Jackson is another option available to Dillon after he returned from a knee injury to provide the assist for Hylton at Saltergate.

Former Reading midfielder John Halls (groin) remains sidelined, though defender Dave Winfield is fit after recovering from a bout of food poisoning.

A win over Bradford could move the Shots level on points with Notts County, who occupy the final play-off place in League Two.

Bradford manager Peter Taylor could hand a debut to new signing Gavin Grant.

Taylor, taking charge of his fourth game since replacing Stuart McCall, has drafted in former Wycombe striker Grant, Mark McCammon and Robbie Threlfall since arriving at Valley Parade.

McCammon made his debut in Saturday's home win over Darlington and Threlfall, on loan from Liverpool, has appeared in the Bantams' last two matches. Grant will be the only addition to Taylor's squad.

Defender Zesh Rehman is still sidelined with a calf problem and James O'Brien has not yet recovered full fitness following a nose operation.

City have won two of their three games under Taylor and are chasing a third successive league win for the first time this season.
