Bradford manager Phil Parkinson will make a late decision on striker Nahki Wells for the home game with Morecambe.

Wells has been struggling with a hip injury and although he has been given the all-clear to play, a second game in four days could be too much for the Bermudian, who stepped off the substitutes' bench for the final 20 minutes in the weekend win over Barnet.

Alan Connell started up front alongside James Hanson on Saturday.

Parkinson must decide who to start with in goal. Jon McLaughlin was given preference against Barnet, but Matt Duke has started four of the Bantams' league games this season and could return to the side.

Ricky Ravenhill is another player pushing for a recall. The midfielder returned to the bench on Saturday following a knee injury that has kept him sidelined since mid-April.

Fellow midfielder Ritchie Jones (ankle ligaments) has returned to training, but is still unavailable.

Morecambe boss Jim Bentley has a selection of attacking options at his disposal.

In response to the 4-0 derby defeat to Fleetwood, Bentley introduced Stewart Drummond, Jack Redshaw and Jordan Burrow to his starting line-up at Aldershot on Saturday.

However, the Shrimps drew a blank once more in a goalless draw and that could mean recalls for any of Lewis Alessandra, Richard Brodie or former Bradford loanee Kevin Ellison.

Bentley's men have enjoyed themselves on their travels so far this season, with returns on the road accounting for seven of their eight points so far.

The game at Aldershot came on the back of consecutive 3-0 away wins at Bristol Rovers and Exeter on the opening day.

Danny Carlton remains a long-term absentee with a knee injury.
