Trio absent for Bantams
Bradford will be without midfield trio Michael Flynn, Ricky Ravenhill and Kyel Reid for their home game with Shrewsbury.
Flynn has been laid low in hospital with a virus and missed the Boxing Day win over Crewe, Ravenhill, on loan from Notts County, is banned for one game under the totting-up procedure and Reid is struggling with a hamstring injury.
Flynn could return to contention for Monday's clash at Rotherham, but Reid, waiting to learn the full extent of the injury following a scan on Thursday, will miss both matches.
Luke O'Brien and Jack Compton are vying to fill the gap left by Reid on the left wing, while midfielder David Syers could make his first start since the opening day of the season after recovering from a long-term knee injury.
Syers stepped off the bench in the closing stages against Crewe and provides manager Phil Parkinson with an extra option.
Shrewsbury boss Graham Turner may keep faith with an unchanged XI for the third successive match.
Turner named the same starting line-up for Town's solid Boxing Day point away to promotion rivals Cheltenham as the one which saw off Macclesfield 1-0 the previous week.
And, with no new injury or suspension problems expected, he is unlikely to see any reason for change in the first of two games in three days, although Monday's home clash against Northampton could see a couple of fresh faces.
Speaking after the goalless draw at Whaddon Road, Turner said: "Providing I don't get too many injuries between now and Saturday and then Monday, I've got an opportunity with the quality of players we've got in the squad to make one or two changes for the second of the games, so we may well do that."
Fit-again Jermaine Grandison could force his way onto the bench having got plenty of training under his belt upon his recovery from a torn hamstring, although fellow defender Reuben Hazell (knee) remains out until early February.
Bantams make it three in a row
Bradford stunned high-flying Shrewsbury 3-1 to secure their third consecutive win in npower League Two.
The Bantams cruised past their fourth-placed guests with goals from James Hanson, Nahki Wells and Craig Fagan to extend their unbeaten league run to five matches.
The Shrews grabbed a late consolation through Marvin Morgan, his ninth of the season, after Bradford had David Syers sent off for a professional foul, but the hosts were comfortable in victory.
Hanson handed the west Yorkshire outfit the lead after 24 minutes. The striker rose highest to nod Andrew Davies` cross beyond Chris Neal in the Shrews` goal to register his ninth goal of the campaign.
And the home side doubled their lead five minutes later when Bermudan international Wells buried the ball into the bottom right-hand corner of the net with a left-footed shot from the edge of the area.
Fagan`s 12-yard volley effectively killed the game off four minutes after half-time and, although Syers received his marching orders with 20 minutes remaining following a foul on Nicky Wroe, all Shrewsbury could muster with the man advantage was Morgan`s volleyed effort after 78 minutes.
