No new problems for Blackpool manager Neil McDonald

Blackpool will select from an unchanged squad against Bradford after Neil McDonald reported no new problems.

Goalkeeper Colin Doyle (ankle) made his first appearance in nearly a month at Swindon last time out and should keep his spot between the sticks again.

The Seasiders have two long-term absentees in Lloyd Jones (ankle) and Henry Cameron (knee), although the former is close to coming back into the squad.

Jack Redshaw dropped to the bench in the 3-2 loss to Swindon for the first time in six games and the striker may earn a recall to the starting XI.

Bradford striker James Hanson has recovered from a head knock and will be in contention to start.

Hanson was forced off at half-time during last week's home draw against Rochdale, while boss Phil Parkinson has no other new injury or suspension concerns.

On-loan midfielders Josh Cullen and Lee Evans, plus left-back James Meredith have all struggled with illness this week but will be available.

Long-term absentee Paul Anderson, sidelined since breaking his leg in September, returned to full training this week and could soon be back in contention.
