Bradford v Barnet preview

Fortune: Back for Bees
Team news ahead of Saturday's League Two clash between Bradford City and Barnet at Valley Parade.
Bradford striker Nahki Wells has been given the all-clear to return to action.
Wells missed last week's draw with Accrington due to an on-going hip problem, but specialists this week have told the 22-year-old he has only sustained minor damage and he could be included in the squad.
Manager Phil Parkinson is boosted by the return of Ricky Ravenhill who has been sidelined so far this season with a knee injury, but fellow midfielder Ritchie Jones is still several weeks away from a return as he too recovers from a knee problem.
Striker Alan Connell is pressing for his first league start at home following his late equaliser at Accrington.
Jon McLaughlin hopes to retain his place in goal, but Parkinson may opt to recall Matt Duke, while defender Rory McArdle and striker Garry Thompson are hoping to feature.
Barnet welcome back skipper Jon Fortune for the trip.
The former Charlton centre-half missed last weekend's 3-1 defeat by Gillingham with a knee injury but has been passed fit.
Fellow defender Jack Saville, who scored the Bees' goal on Saturday, limped off in the second half with an ankle knock but should also be available along with midfielder Mark Byrne, who came off at half-time with ankle trouble.
Liam O'Brien is still out with a groin strain so former Arsenal and Hibs goalkeeper Graham Stack keeps his place.
Defender Danny Senda and striker Steve Kabba are recovering from long-term knee injuries suffered last season.
The Bees are bottom of League Two with just one point from five games.
