Shrews stretched for Bantams clash

Paul Simpson will call upon every available body for the encounter with teams now able to include seven substitutes on their bench.

Goalkeeper Chris Neal (groin) and midfielder Craig Disley (knee) are both looking at three weeks on the sidelines, while striker Omer Riza (ankle), midfielder Terry Dunfield (shoulder), defender Mike Jackson (bone bruising) and keeper Glyn Garner (shoulder) are all long-term absentees.

Midfielder Lewis Neal made the bench for last weekend's 3-1 win at Accrington after completing his recovery from an ankle injury and he will again be available.

Loan signing Steve Phillips is expected to make his home debut between the sticks having made his first start for the club at the Crown Ground.
