Doherty back for Bantams

22 November 2010 03:30
Tommy Doherty is expected to go straight back into Bradford's starting line-up against Accrington after suspension. The midfielder, who missed Saturday's home defeat to Macclesfield, is likely to replace Lee Bullock. Striker James Hanson returned on Saturday after a hamstring strain but could be rested as he unexpectedly played the full 90 minutes, with Gareth Evans, Jason Price and Louis Moult all hoping to come in. Manager Peter Taylor has no new injury or suspension problems, but is still without central defenders Steve Williams (groin) and Shane Duff (Achilles) and long-term absentees Simon Ramsden (calf) and Michael Flynn (hernia). Bradford's mini revival has hit the buffers with successive 1-0 defeats halting their climb up the table following a run of four wins in their previous five league matches.
