Bradford V Crewe - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.Davies set for Bantams returnBradford defender Andrew Davies could return to the squad for the home game against bottom club Crewe.Davies has been sidelined since August due to a broken arm, but trained with the first-team squad on Thursday and is expected to be available for selection.Striker James Hanson is also edging closer to a return to action after missing the last three games with a thigh strain, but this game is likely to come too soon.Defender Alan Sheehan (suspension) and midfielder Matty Dolan (hip) both returned to the bench as unused substitutes last week and are pushing for recalls as City chase their first home league win since the opening day of the season.Struggling Crewe are expected to recall Adam Dugdale as they bid to claw back some of the five-point deficit between themselves and safety.After being fully fit following a bout of illness, defender Dugdale publicly expressed his frustration at having been left on the bench in the 3-0 loss to Notts County

He may now get his chance, though, with George Ray out for a few weeks due to a groin complaint.The Alex are keeping their fingers crossed that loanee Fabian Brandy can help their cause by overcoming a calf complaint, but fellow forward Ryan Colclough (hernia) is still not quite ready yet.Defender Harry Davis made his long-awaited comeback from a knee injury for the club's Under-21s this week but he is still building up his match fitness
