Match Preview

Duo poised for Bantams returns Bradford defenders Simon Ramsden and Robbie Threlfall are expected to return to the starting line-up against promoted Stevenage. Manager Peter Taylor made seven changes from the side that lost on the opening day at Shrewsbury for the midweek Carling Cup win over Nottingham Forest and will have several selection dilemmas ahead of his side's first home league game of the season. Full-backs Ramsden and Threlfall both started on the substitutes' bench against Forest, while Omar Daley, Shane Duff, Jake Speight, Louis Moult, Luke O'Brien and Zesh Rehman were all recalled by Taylor. Striker James Hanson stepped off the bench to fire the extra-time winner against Forest and is likely to start on Saturday, but midfielder Michael Flynn (back) and Gareth Evans (knock) are still struggling. Darren Murphy is an injury doubt for Stevenage. Midfielder Murphy was forced off at half-time in Monday's Carling Cup defeat to Portsmouth after injuring his shoulder. The seriousness of the injury is not yet known, but Stacy Long is likely to step in should Murphy not recover in time. David Bridges serves the final instalment of his three-match suspension after he was sent off in last season's FA Trophy final against Barrow. Jon Ashton is expected to miss out, although the powerful defender is now back in training following hip surgery and will hope to return to action in the next few weeks. Manager Graham Westley is expected to tinker with his starting XI once again, with forward Peter Vincenti among those hoping to gain a recall.

Match Report

Evans penalty seals Bantams win A first-half penalty from Gareth Evans was enough to gave Bradford their first points of the season against Football League newcomers Stevenage at Valley Parade. Bradford were awarded the penalty after 31 minutes when Lee Bullock was brought down by Joel Byrom and Evans scored from the spot to settle a scrappy game. The penalty proved to be Bradford's only shot on target as Stevenage enjoyed the bulk of the possession without being able to turn their territorial superiority into goals and the home side were forced to defend desperately at times to preserve their lead. The visitors' best chance came after 58 minutes when lively striker Yemi Odubade intercepted a back-pass from Bradford skipper Shane Duff. He looked to be a certain scorer, but keeper Jon McLaughlin raced to the edge of the penalty area to clear the danger. The Stevenage player was injured in the challenge and was substituted five minutes later.
