Bradford V Coventry at Coral Windows Stadium - Match Preview

Bantams wait on McArdle

Bradford could be without central defender Rory McArdle for Sunday's televised home clash with Coventry.

McArdle is nursing an ankle injury, but is also on international duty with Northern Ireland, who play in Turkey on Friday, so boss Phil Parkinson may opt to rest him. Matt Taylor, Carl McHugh and Luke Oliver all provide alternative options.

Parkinson has no new injury or suspension problems, but could choose to recall Garry Thompson, Mark Yeates or Jason Kennedy following last week's disappointing FA Cup exit at Rotherham.

Defender Andrew Davies is still working his way back from knee surgery and will be sidelined until the new year.

Teenager Billy Daniels is available for Coventry after missing the last five matches having undergone a hernia operation and could well make the bench at Valley Parade.

Fellow midfielder John Fleck is available again after sitting out last Friday's 3-1 FA Cup victory at AFC Wimbledon through suspension, while Norwich loanee Jamar Loza is also back in the frame having been denied permission to feature by his parent club.

Manager Steven Pressley has no new injury or suspension concerns to contend with but remains without defender Jordan Willis (knee).
