Bradford manager Peter Jackson could name three teenagers on his bench.

Jackson, who has no new injury or suspension problems, is keen to hand youth-team skipper Alex Flett, winger Dominic Rowe and striker Darren Stephenson a taste of first-team action.

Rowe and Stephenson have both stepped off the bench already this season for Jackson's side, while Flett is hoping to make his first appearance. All three players are 18.

Tommy Doherty will not be involved as he has had his contract terminated by mutual consent, while fellow midfielder Tom Adeyemi, on loan from Norwich, remains sidelined due to a thigh injury.

Midfielder Michael Flynn (hamstring) misses out again and on-loan winger Kevin Ellison has returned to parent club Rotherham.

AJ Leitch-Smith could declare himself fit for Crewe's season finale.

The young striker has been struggling with a hamstring injury but has resumed training.

"He has trained well and we will see how he feels ahead of the game," said Alex boss Dario Gradi.

Danny Blanchett missed the home win over Stockport last weekend with a groin strain but the full-back could return to the squad. Mat Mitchel-King deputised for Blanchett against the Hatters.

Captain David Artell could come back into the reckoning after a hamstring injury, while Antoni Sarcevic, Ashley Westwood and Joel Grant are available for recalls.

Oliver Turton made his debut towards the end of the Stockport game and the youngster could be involved once more.
