Unchanged squad for Bantams against Scunthorpe

Bradford boss Stuart McCall is expected to select from an unchanged squad for the home game against Scunthorpe.

McCall has no new injury or suspension worries following last week's draw at Walsall, while striker Billy Clarke is still out due to a calf injury that has kept him sidelined since November.

Defender Tony McMahon, an unused substitute in the last two matches, is hoping to make his first league start since recovering from a torn thigh muscle.

Winger Filipe Morais, striker Marc McNulty and defender Rory McArdle are among those pushing for recalls for the Bantams, who have won only one of their last five league games.

Scunthorpe left-back Conor Townsend is set to be out for at least a month after undergoing surgery on a groin injury on Thursday.

The 23-year-old missed Saturday's win over Millwall, when the Iron returned to the top of Sky Bet League One, and is expected to be sidelined until at least the end of January.

Midfielder Jamie Ness, who has not played since late November, has recovered from illness and is back training with the group.

Defender David Mirfin is progressing well with his recovery from a foot injury sustained in November, with a mid-January return anticipated.
