Aldershot will have Gabriel Osho available for the FA Cup tie against Bradford after his loan from Reading was extended this week.

Matt McClure is unlikely to feature in the game because of a shoulder injury while on-loan Adam May is unavailable because of the loan stipulations of his parent club Portsmouth.

Of the long-term injured, Jacob Berkeley-Agyepong is nearest to a return but is also unexpected to feature on Saturday.

Aldershot captain Karleigh Osborne and James Rowe remain sidelined through injury.

Bradford look set to be without left-back Adam Chicksen after he was sent off for a second bookable offence in their match against Portsmouth.

Chicksen had just come back into the side after an injury ruled him out for 10 weeks.

Alex Jones and Jim O’Brien could miss out again with hamstring injuries, causing further problems for the side looking to end their run of seven consecutive defeats in all competitions.

Manager David Hopkin said his side would be taking non-league Aldershot seriously and the FA Cup could act as a starting point to improve their league form.
