Bantams waiting on Hanson

01 November 2010 03:30
Bradford could be without striker James Hanson for their league game at Bury if their appeal against his dismissal on Saturday is unsuccessful. Hanson was sent off following an altercation in Saturday's home win over Oxford with visiting defender Jake Wright and could start a three-match ban, so Jason Price, on loan from Carlisle, is on stand-by to partner Omar Daley, currently operating in a central role, if the appeal fails. Centre-half Shane Duff is still out with an Achilles problem, but manager Peter Taylor does not have any other new injury or suspension problems following his side's biggest win of the season on Saturday, 5-0 against Oxford. David Syers and Louis Moult both staked their claim for a return to the starting line-up with late goals, but Taylor is not expected to make any unforced changes as his side chase a fourth win in five league matches. Lenny Pidgeley will continue in goal after making his debut last weekend, while Michael Flynn (hernia), Simon Ramsden (calf), Gareth Evans (fractured wrist) and Robbie Threlfall (back) remain sidelined.
