Bradford manager Peter Taylor could be tempted to hand on-loan striker Ryan Kendall his first start against Dagenham & Redbridge.

The Hull forward, 20, has made two substitute appearances since arriving at Valley Parade for an initial month and may partner James Hanson up front.

Taylor made four changes for the goalless midweek draw with Notts County and was pleased with his players' response following last weekend's defeat at lowly Hereford.

Midfielder Lee Bullock sits out the second match of a two-game ban, so Mike Flynn is expected to continue alongside Adam Bolder, on loan from Millwall, in central midfield.

Matt Clarke was rested in midweek, with Luke Oliver, also on loan from Millwall, partnering Steve Williams at the heart of defence, while club skipper Zesh Rehman returned to full-back.

Taylor must decide whether to stick with Rehman or start with Jonathan Bateson, who replaced him after 70 minutes in midweek. Mark McCammon has returned to parent club Gillingham.

Dagenham manager John Still has no injury concerns.

The Daggers returned to winning ways at home to Macclesfield last weekend with a 3-1 victory that left them just three points short of the play-off places and Still is likely to name the same side.

Winger Danny Green hit a brace and will start on the right while on the left Peter Gain is under pressure from Jon Nurse and Graeme Montgomery.

The Daggers have only won four times on the road all season and will need to rectify that run if they are to gatecrash the top seven.

Midfielder Stuart Thurgood remains sidelined with a knee injury which threatens to end his season and defender Will Antwi is still nursing a calf strain.

Striker Wesley Thomas has joined Rushden & Diamonds on loan until the end of the season.
