Sam Walker has become Bradford’s number one since Harry Lewis’ January exit to Carlisle United.

In defence, Alexander is likely to go for the same backline due to injuries. Brentford loan man Dan Oyegoke came into the team last time out.

Lewis Richards is poised to play against his former club. He had two loan spells at Harrogate from Wolves as a youngster.

With Gilliead now emerging as a doubt, the door has opened for Kevin McDonald to come back into the starting XI. He injects more experience into the side.

Andy Cook, who has 15 league goals to his name this season, will be eager to cause some problems for the Sulphurites.

The Bantams could freshen things up and give Plymouth Argyle loan man Tyreik Wright the nod to start again.
