Bradford's on-loan defender Andrew Davies could return to the starting line-up for the final game of the season.

Davies, on loan from Stoke, has found his route back into the side following a five-game ban blocked by the form of Luke Oliver and Guy Branston, but manager Phil Parkinson hinted the centre-half could feature against Paolo Di Canio's champions.

Midfielder David Syers is another player who has had to make do with a place on the substitutes' bench in recent weeks and he is also hoping for a recall.

The Bantams will be without midfielder Michael Flynn, striker Craig Fagan and the versatile Chris Mitchell after they have all been released from the club by mutual consent.

Youth-team player Adam Baker is hoping to be included in the squad again and could even be handed his debut in the last game of the season, while fellow youngsters Forryah Bass and Louie Swain may also feature in the squad.

Meanwhile, champions Swindon are likely to be at full strength as they aim to round off a successful season with all three points.

The Robins finally clinched the League Two title with last weekend's emphatic 5-0 triumph over Port Vale but will be keen to complete the campaign in a positive manner.

Di Canio made two changes for the victory over Vale, goalkeeper Wes Foderingham, dropped for his off-field indiscipline, and striker Paul Benson (hamstring) coming back into the side.

Phil Smith and Alan Connell were the two to make way respectively, with the latter taking a place on the bench.

Striker Connell will be in contention for a recall against the Bantams should Di Canio opt to rotate his ranks, as are the likes of Lee Cox, Luke Rooney, Jonathan Smith and Joe Devera.
