Gillingham have not lost their opening league game of the season for the past four years and will be keen to continue that run.
Bradford pair Andrew Davies and Ritchie Jones are expected to be included in their squad following injury.
Defender Davies missed the Capital One Cup win last weekend at Notts County due to a hamstring injury, while midfielder Jones was struggling with a thigh problem.
Manager Phil Parkinson told the club's official website: "They were only niggly injuries, but if you try and rush people back you can sometimes make things a bit more serious.
"We decided not to push things with those two last week with this Saturday in mind. As much as we wanted them to be in contention for the Notts County match, you have to be careful."
Parkinson, who has no other injury or suspension worries, must decide whether to start with either Davies or Jones or retain Will Atkinson and Gary Jones in the starting line-up.
Parkinson must also choose between Jon McLaughlin and Matt Duke for a starting place in goal.
