Bantams missing nine

Last updated : 08 October 2010

Bradford manager Peter Taylor could be without nine first-team players for the clash at Barnet. Striker Gareth Evans has been ruled out for at least a month after fracturing his wrist and on-loan defender Reece Brown has returned to Manchester United after damaging knee ligaments on his debut in the same match against Morecambe last week. Tom Adeyemi, on loan from Norwich, partnered Lewis Moult up front against Hartlepool in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy in midweek and may start again while club skipper Zesh Rehman will continue at right-back in place of Brown. Midfielder Tommy Doherty (ankle) is still doubtful after missing the last two matches, as is centre-half Shane Duff, who is struggling with an Achilles injury sustained against Morecambe. Defender Robbie Threlfall (back), sidelined for three games, is still out but Michael Flynn (double hernia) and James Hanson (hamstring) may travel with the squad. Skipper Simon Ramsden (calf) and Lewis Hunt (knee) remain long-term absentees.
