Jones and Ravenhill forced to watch on
Bradford will be without injured midfielders Ritchie Jones and Ricky Ravenhill for the home game with AFC Wimbledon.
Jones has had rotten luck with injuries already this summer and after overcoming ankle and hamstring problems will be sidelined for several more weeks after recently twisting another ankle in training. Ravenhill is expected to be out of action for at least the next three months after damaging medial knee ligaments during pre-season. Defender Andrew Davies suffered no reaction after playing the full 90 minutes in the midweek win over Fleetwood following a recent thigh strain and is expected to continue. Manager Phil Parkinson must decide whether to include new signings Zavon Hines and Nathan Doyle in his starting line-up again. Both winger Hines and midfielder Doyle did not have the benefit of a full pre-season's training, so Will Atkinson and another summer signing, Garry Thompson, could come into Parkinson's plans.
