Lee Hendrie remains doubtful for Bradford's FA Cup clash at Colchester due to a hamstring problem.
The former Aston Villa midfielder missed the midweek win at Bury and could face a late fitness test.
But manager Peter Taylor has been given permission to play all three of his loan players in the first-round clash, so Tom Adeyemi (Norwich), Louis Moult (Stoke) and Jason Price (Carlisle) are expected to feature.
Striker James Hanson was cleared to play at Bury after having the red card he received against Oxford on Saturday rescinded, but Taylor may be tempted to rest him and give Moult a rare start.
Another striker, Gareth Evans, returned to the substitutes' bench on Tuesday wearing a soft cast to protect his broken wrist and he is expected to keep his place in the squad.
Shane Duff (Achilles), Michael Flynn (hernia) and Simon Ramsden (calf) remain sidelined.
