Osborne unlikely to face Imps

Osborne was forced out of Saturday's 2-2 draw at Chesterfield with a hamstring strain and if he fails to make it Omar Daley will be recalled to the starting line-up.

Skipper Simon Ramsden could be named on the substitutes' bench after a long-term hip/calf injury.

Ramsden was expected to return at Chesterfield, but tweaked his back in training and was left out of the squad as a precaution after being sidelined since August.

Manager Peter Taylor, under pressure to turn around the Bantams' fortunes after his side have collected one point from their last five league matches, will be without midfielders Tommy Doherty (ankle) and Lee Bullock (thigh) and defender Steve Williams (hamstring).
