Bradford are set to include striker Jason Price in the side after he joined on loan from Carlisle this week.Centre-back Shane Duff returns from a calf strain, while on-loan defender Reece Brown has recovered from a knee injury and is also in contention.

Cheltenham will again be without striker Wes Thomas, who is still struggling with a thigh problem.

Midfielder Frankie Artus (shin) returned to full training this week and could be included in the squad.

Bradford City manager Peter Taylor told BBC Radio Leeds: "I've said to them that they've got to repeat it [performance against Barnet] because our season hasn't been consistent enough and it hasn't been good enough.

"That's why we're in the position we're in, and for Bradford City that's nowhere near good enough and nowhere near acceptable.

"The players were in top gear last Saturday - they were determined to go and get a win and they've got to repeat that."

Cheltenham Town boss Mark Yates told BBC Gloucestershire: "We're not getting carried away but I think we've made a better start than people expected and that's raised expectations in the dressing room.

Yates not fooled by Bradford's poor start

"Shaun [Duffy] did exceptionally well in the second half against Northampton and I think his pace could cause one or two problems.

"Bradford are a decent team and it'll be a good atmosphere there with 11 or 12,000 and they'll be ready to come flying at us."
