Bantams sweating on duo
Bradford pair Guy Branston and Ritchie Jones are both hoping to shake off injuries in time for the visit of second-bottom Macclesfield.
Centre-half Branston, back in the side in recent weeks following the suspensions of Luke Oliver and Andrew Davies, strained an adductor muscle in last week's win at Northampton.
Midfielder Jones was replaced late in the same game after taking a knock on the hip, but is expected to be in contention, while Davies, on loan from Stoke, sits out the last of his five-game ban.
Manager Phil Parkinson must decide whether to stick with Matt Duke in goal or recall Jon McLaughlin, who returned to the bench last week following his suspension.
Midfielders David Syers, Michael Flynn and Lee Bullock, plus striker Deane Smalley are all pushing for recalls to Parkinson's starting line-up and on-loan forward Chris Dagnall (back) returns to contention.
The Bantams just about assured their Football League safety last week but require another point to make relegation a mathematical impossibility.
