Mclean back for Bantams

Bradford striker Aaron Mclean is back in contention for the home game against Port Vale following illness.

The former Hull forward had been struggling ahead of Saturday's postponed league clash against Coventry, but returned to full training at the weekend.

Winger Mark Yeates could also be included in the squad after missing the last four matches, but defender Matt Taylor (foot) and Raffaele De Vita (hip) are not expected to feature.

Defender James Meredith (foot) remains sidelined, while winger Kyel Reid (knee) has been ruled out for the rest of the season.

Port Vale boss Micky Adams will check on striker Tom Pope before travelling.

Vale's top goalscorer was taken off in the 14th minute of Saturday's goalless draw against Shrewsbury with a neck injury but he trained on Monday and could be fit enough to feature against the Bantams.

Fellow forwards Gavin Tomlin and Ben Williamson are in contention to come into the starting XI should Pope miss out.

Jennison Myrie-Williams came off the bench against the Shrews and he is available to start should Adams decide to make further changes.
