Reid may return for Bantams
Bradford winger Kyel Reid staked his claim for a return to the starting line-up against Wycombe with an impressive outing in the weekend defeat at Exeter.
Reid, a half-time replacement for Zavon Hines on Saturday, returned to something like his best form, while defender James Meredith could make his first appearance since January after recovering from glandular fever.
Meredith returned to the squad at Exeter as an unused substitute.
Manager Phil Parkinson, who has no new injury or suspension problems, must decide whether to recall leading goalscorer Nahki Wells, who has started on the bench in the last two matches.
Goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin, defender Rory McArdle, winger Zavon Hines and midfielder Ricky Ravenhill give Parkinson plenty of options as Bradford chase only their second win in eight league games.
Wycombe will assess Matt McClure ahead of the trip.
The striker, 21, limped out of his side's 2-2 draw with Rotherham last week with a foot injury and manager Gareth Ainsworth says the 10-goal forward is "pretty close" to a return.
Ainsworth, whose side's clash with Northampton fell foul to a waterlogged pitch on Saturday morning, will monitor captain Dave Winfield who also had to be substituted in that clash with the Millers.
The defender was replaced 16 minutes from time and is now a doubt with a hip problem. Gary Doherty is ready to step in if Winfield is unavailable against the Bantams.
The Chairboys remain without Anthony Stewart, (hand), Grant Basey, (knee), Matt Bloomfield (groin) and Danny Foster (knee).
