Bradford V Rotherham at Coral Windows Stadium : Match Preview

Bradford V Rotherham - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.


City deprived of McArdle services

Bradford defender Rory McArdle will miss the home game against Rotherham due to suspension.


McArdle received his fifth booking of the season in the weekend defeat at Peterborough and sits out a one-game ban, so Matt Taylor, Carl McHugh and Luke Oliver are all in contention to start.


Striker James Hanson remains doubtful due to the calf strain that kept him out on Saturday, but veteran Andy Gray is hoping to make his first start of the season after scoring his first goal since returning to the club last January at Posh.


Winger Raffaele De Vita (thigh) is not expected back, while defender Andrew Davies (knee) remains a long-term absentee.


Rotherham manager Steve Evans will make changes to his side.


The Millers boss intends to make full use of his squad as they enter a busy period, with Michael O'Connor, Rob Milsom, Alex Revell and Joe Skarz all hoping for a start.


O'Connor and Skarz were on the bench for the 3-3 draw with Wolves on Saturday and both men played in a behind-closed-doors clash at Barnsley on Monday.


One change that is enforced will be in attack as in-form loan striker Nouha Dicko has been recalled by parent club Wigan after scoring six goals in five games, while fellow loan frontman Matt Tubbs is struggling with an illness.
