Hanson ready for Bradford return

02 February 2010 10:37
Hanson, the Bantams' leading scorer this season with eight goals following his summer arrival from Guiseley, has missed the last three games due to a torn back muscle, but could return to full training later this week.

Manager Stuart McCall is hoping the 22-year-old can play some part against in-form Bury, while the under-fire boss could also be given a boost by the imminent return of both long-term absentees Peter Thorne and Stephen O'Leary.

Striker Thorne, who fired 17 goals last season, has made only six first-team appearances this time round due to a calf injury, while summer signing O'Leary made his debut against Port Vale in August before breaking a toe and has not played since.
