Bradford to make late decision about Billy Clarke

Bradford striker Billy Clarke will have a late fitness test before the home game against Northampton.

The Irishman missed Saturday's defeat at Southend due to a tight calf, but has not been ruled out for a game that will be dedicated to the club's former striker and record goalscorer Bobby Campbell, who died last week.

Goalkeeper Colin Doyle and midfielder Josh Cullen both returned to the starting line-up at the weekend following international duty and are expected to continue.

Defender Tony McMahon was scheduled to return to training this week following a thigh injury and forward Vincent Rabiega (muscle strain) is still out.

Northampton will be without defender Zander Diamond.

The Scot suffered a fractured cheekbone during Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Peterborough at Sixfields and could be out until the new year.

Gabriel Zakuani replaced Diamond at the back and is likely to start at Valley Parade.

On-loan Port Vale striker JJ Hooper is battling to overcome a thigh strain.
