Uwe Rosler could make changes to Fleetwood line-up for play-off second leg

Fleetwood boss Uwe Rosler could make changes as he aims to overturn a 1-0 deficit in their Sky Bet League One play-off semi-final against Bradford.

Markus Schwabl and Devante Cole were brought in for the first leg at Valley Parade, while Nathan Pond replaced Cian Bolger, who suffered an ankle injury against Port Vale.

Schwabl was taken off at half-time with Rosler concerned about a second yellow card and his replacement George Glendon may have done enough to earn a starting place.

Jimmy Ryan, out since November with a foot injury, played for 45 minutes with the development squad on Tuesday night.

Bradford striker Alex Jones is unlikely to be fit in time for the return leg as he continues his recovery from a hamstring problem.

Jones was injured in Bradford's final game of the regular season and manager Stuart McCall insisted he would not take a risk with his 15-goal frontman.

McCall has no fresh injury worries and is likely to stick with the side that gave Bradford a slender first-leg advantage.

In the league meeting between the sides at Highbury Stadium in February, Fleetwood came from behind to earn a 2-1 victory.
