AFC Wimbledon midfielder Harry Pell looks set to return to action.

The 21-year-old missed the Dons' last two games through suspension after he was booked for the 10th time this season against Burton on February 2, and he is back in contention to play some part against the Bantams.

Will Antwi remains sidelined with a hip injury along with fellow defender Curtis Osano, who is still struggling with a calf injury.

Long-term absentee Huw Johnson is no closer to making his return to first-team action, while striker Jason Prior also remains on the treatment table.

Dons boss Neal Ardley has not seen his team win at home in 2013 but a rare victory at Kingsmeadow could see the League's basement club move out of the relegation zone.

Bradford manager Phil Parkinson has hinted he could make several changes.

The Bantams secured their first league win in seven matches at Wycombe in midweek and while Parkinson has no new injury or suspension problems he could decide to rest a few players.

"It will be a case of myself and Steve (Parkin) picking the team that we feel has the ability to play at the same level as Tuesday again," he said.

"There are certainly a few decisions we have to make, whether we freshen the pack up again in regards a few players or not."

Central defender Andrew Davies returned from a four-month injury lay-off on Tuesday night and played just short of the full 90 minutes.

Davies, back from knee ligament damage, has not had any reaction, but is unlikely to be asked to play a second game in four days, so Carl McHugh or Curtis Good could return to the starting line-up.

Parkinson must also decide whether to recall leading goalscorer Nahki Wells and strike partner James Hanson.
