Double boost for Bantams
Bradford goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin and defender Luke Oliver will return to contention for the game at Northampton following suspension.
Both players have completed their respective three-game bans for their part in the post-match brawl following the recent home defeat to Crawley.
McLaughlin played the full 90 minutes in the reserves' midweek draw with Hull and manager Phil Parkinson must decide whether to recall him straight back into the starting line-up or keep faith with Matt Duke.
Defenders Matt Fry and Chris Mitchell, plus striker Deane Smalley also featured in the reserves and could be included in Parkinson's squad.
Guy Branston has stepped in at centre-half in Oliver's absence and will be hoping to retain his place, while Marcel Seip has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a shoulder injury.
David Syers replaced midfielder Ritchie Jones in Monday's defeat at Shrewsbury as the latter felt the effects of a knock sustained against Southend last Friday and winger Kyel Reid is pushing for a recall to the starting line-up.
