Bradford's on-loan defender Robbie Threlfall will retain his place in the starting line-up against Notts County after extending his loan spell until the end of the season.

Threlfall has made seven appearances for the Bantams since arriving at the end of February and scored on his debut in the 3-1 win at Rochdale.

But Bradford will be without midfielder Lee Bullock, who serves a two-game ban after reaching 10 bookings in Saturday's defeat at Hereford, and defender Simon Ramsden, still struggling with a calf injury.

Manager Peter Taylor could switch Michael Flynn into a central midfield role to cover for Bullock and hand Ryan Kendall, on loan from Hull, his full debut up front alongside James Hanson.

Winger Omar Daley is also pressing for a return to the starting line-up.

Notts County will be without striker Luke Rodgers for the trip.

Rodgers was dismissed in the last minute of the 1-0 win at his former side Crewe for violent conduct and begins a three-match ban against Peter Taylor's side.

Top scorer Lee Hughes serves the second game of his own suspension so Karl Hawley and Craig Westcarr will continue in attack as Steve Cotterill's side look to keep up their fine form.

Midfielder Neal Bishop played the full 90 minutes at Gresty Road despite an ankle injury to earn special praise from Cotterill but he will now be assessed to see if he can continue.

County are unbeaten in their last eight League Two games and another three points at Bradford could close the gap on leaders Rochdale to just eight points.
