James Gray is the only expected absentee for Accrington.

Gray, who has scored once in his two appearances so far this season, is away with the Northern Ireland Under-21 squad.

Dean Winnard, Toto Nsiala and George Miller are all in line to return to Paul Cook's first XI after the trio missed the midweek Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat to Morecambe through injury.

Nsiala's absence against the Shrimpers was a precaution. The defender only returned from an ankle injury last weekend and Cook was unwilling to risk the former Everton trainee in two games in four days.

Deadline-day signing Rommy Boco served a suspension carried over from former club Sligo Rovers in midweek and could also return.

Bradford will assess Nahki Wells ahead of the trip to Accrington.

The striker has been struggling with a hip injury and was rested for the Capital One Cup victory against Watford. He returned to the starting XI for the weekend's defeat against Rotherham but continues to be troubled by the problem.

Ritchie Jones (ankle) and Ricky Ravenhill (knee) remain out injured, but both are expected to step up their recoveries next week. Ravenhill is in line to play in a reserve game in midweek, while Jones is set to return to training for the first time this season.

Boss Phil Parkinson has no other injury worries but may choose to freshen things up following their 4-0 defeat at the New York Stadium.

Alan Connell, Will Atkinson, Garry Thompson and Stephen Darby are all pushing for starts.
