Worthington back to boost Bantams

Bradford midfielder Jon Worthington will return to the squad following suspension for the game at Stevenage. The former Huddersfield skipper, who missed last Saturday's home defeat to Shrewsbury, is back in the reckoning following a one-game ban. Central defender Luke Oliver could make a surprise return to the squad after a hamstring injury sustained in the recent home draw with Northampton was expected to keep him out for at least three weeks. Goalkeeper Lenny Pidgeley proved his fitness for the reserves in midweek after missing two games with a thigh injury but Jon McLaughlin has been in fine form in his absence and could retain his place in the starting line-up. Winger Kevin Ellison remains doubtful due to a thigh injury while young striker Darren Stephenson is hoping to retain his place on the bench after making his debut last week.
