Stockport have been boosted ahead of the home clash with Bradford after Preston youngster Jamie Proctor extended his loan spell into a second month.

The rookie striker, 18, has so far made three appearances for Paul Simpson's side.

Simpson guided County to their first win of the season last weekend with a 2-0 victory at derby rivals Macclesfield.

Goalkeeper Matt Glennon, who joined the club last week, looks set to keep his place after an outstanding debut against the Silkmen.

That means Owain fon Williams will be forced to settle for a place on the bench again as Simpson's men bid to build on their victory at Moss Rose.

Simpson has no new concerns but defenders Jordan Rose and Robbie Williams could remain sidelined through injury.

Bradford will be without injured striker James Hanson for the clash at Edgeley Park.

Hanson missed out last weekend due to a hamstring strain and is not expected back in contention for at least another fortnight.

Bantams pair Simon Ramsden and Michael Flynn also remain sidelined. Defender Ramsden is struggling with a calf injury sustained in last month's Carling Cup win over Nottingham Forest, while midfielder Flynn has yet to appear this season due to hernia problem.

Winger Omar Daley is expected to start on the substitutes' bench following international duty with Jamaica, so David Syers should start again after making his first appearance in last week's defeat to Port Vale.

Summer signing Jake Speight made his first start for the club against Port Vale and is expected to retain his place alongside Louis Moult, who could step in for Hanson.
