Bradford goalkeeper Lenny Pidgeley is in contention for the home clash with Shrewsbury but Kevin Ellison is doubtful.
Pidgeley has missed the last two games due to a thigh injury, so manager Peter Jackson must decide whether to recall him or stick with deputy Jon McLaughlin.
Winger Ellison strained his thigh in training this week and is a doubt along with defender Luke Oliver (hamstring).
Simon Ramsden (thigh) and Shane Duff (calf) remain sidelined, leaving Steve Williams as the only recognised centre-half.
Midfielder Jon Worthington sits out with a one-game ban following his two yellow cards at Gillingham last Saturday.
Jackson is expected to include teenage striker Darren Stephenson, a second-year apprentice, on the substitutes' bench.
