Head2Head & early team news - Bradford City

Last updated : 26 February 2008 By Deano
The Millers travel to Valley Parade tomorrow evening in search of the double win boost this week that could take them back into automatic promotion contention.

With all of the top seven clubs winning over the weekend it's very much as you were, with Hereford and Peterborough also in action.

Bradford's home form has been poor of late and they will be looking to bouce back after home defeats to Rochdale and Bury recently, and although they recorded an impressive 3-1 win at Notts County on Saturday they aren't quite safe from the relegation trapdoor.

Peter Thorne, who always seems to net against the Millers and has been scoring goals recently, will be the home sides main danger whilst winger Joe Colbeck, who grabbed his third goal of the season at Meadow Lane, is set to keep his place in the side. Matt Clarke is missing with an ankle problem but Mark Bower could return at the back.

Of Saturday's game, boss Stuart McCall told City's official website: "That was a hard-working, battling performance and Joe was the icing on the cake.

"We've got another tough game Tuesday and I just hope we can put together a result and performance for the home fans after recent disappointing results."

Mark Robins will make a late decision on striker Derek Holmes after he limped off with an ankle injury in Saturday's win over Lincoln, although he has made pleasing progress according to physio Denis Circuit.

Marc Newsham will deputise after making a scoring substitute appearance unless Robins decides to switch formation to 4-4-2, otherwise the same side that finished the weekend fixture is expected with Ian Ross keeping his place in midfield. Elsewhere Steve Brogan is now back from hospital and has started his slow rehabilitation after his leg break.
