Doherty return for Bantams

Doherty, who has missed the last five games, was scheduled to have an ankle operation to remove a floating piece of bone, but the surgery has been postponed.

Fellow midfielders David Syers and Tom Adeyemi are both available after sustaining knocks in the defeat at Aldershot last week, but the Bantams are without midfielder Lee Bullock and defender Steve Williams.

Bullock will be out for at least a month after tearing a thigh muscle, while Williams has missed the last three matches due to a hamstring injury.

Michael Flynn, yet to appear for Bradford this season after undergoing a hernia operation last summer, could be included in the squad.
