Vale look strong for Bantams clash

Micky Adams will be looking to celebrate his two-year contract extension by landing a semi-final spot and edging closer to a trip to Wembley. But to do that his side will have to put in a much better performance than they gave against Stevenage on Saturday, with the non-League outfit grabbing a deserved late equaliser in their FA Cup first-round clash to force a replay. On-loan duo Lewis Haldane and Jamie Guy are eligible to feature, but it remains to be seen whether midfielder Doug Loft (calf) will be risked despite his return to training last week. Geoff Horsfield is still out with a groin problem. Adam Yates came in at right wing-back to score the opener against Stevenage - his first-ever goal as a professional - and he should continue, while Adams faces a dilemma over whether to recall Louis Dodds following his omission.
