Bantams boss Phil Parkinson could hand a late fitness test to leading goalscorer Nahki Wells ahead of the home clash with Wolves.

Wells has missed the last four games due to an ankle injury and, although he returned to training this week, Parkinson has stressed he will not be rushing the nine-goal forward back.

Parkinson has no other new injury or suspension concerns following the midweek draw at Preston, where recent signing Caleb Folan made his second appearance off the bench.

Folan may have to be patient before making his first start, but in-form winger Kyel Reid will face one of his former clubs. Key defender Andrew Davies (knee) remains a long-term absentee.

Matt Doherty will miss Wolves' trip to Bradford while striker Kevin Doyle could return to head coach Kenny Jackett's starting XI.

Doherty was forced off after just 38 minutes of Tuesday's 2-0 win over Oldham due to a hamstring injury and will now miss out at Valley Parade, although the complaint is not as bad as first feared and the full-back could return against Stevenage next weekend.

Striker Doyle, meanwhile, was rested to the bench against Latics but is pushing for a recall to face the Bantams.

Otherwise, Jackett has a full-strength squad at his disposal as Wolves, with nine wins in their last 11 League One matches, aim to close the three-point gap at the the summit of the table.
