O'Leary to face Magpies in opener
Published : 07 Aug 2009 15:15:54
O'Leary has joined on a five-month deal with a view to earning a longer contract and is expected to join Michael Flynn and Jamie O'Brien in the Bantams squad for Saturday's League Two meeting at Meadow Lane. Simon Eastwood, from Huddersfield, and Jon McLaughlin will vie for the goalkeeper's spot and former Macclesfield striker Gareth Evans will start alongside new skipper Peter Thorne up front, but ex-Guiseley forward James Hanson is also in the reckoning. New defenders Simon Ramsden, Jonathan Bateson and non-league signing Steve Williams could all feature in a new-look back four. Club captain Zesh Rehman, Omar Daley, Matt Clarke and Lee Bullock all served under McCall last season and are hoping to play their part, while Chris Brandon has finally put his long-term ankle injury behind him.
