Matt Duke: In contention for Bantams
Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between York City and Bradford City at Bootham Crescent.
York boss Gary Mills is expected to name an unchanged starting line-up.
Mills has no new injury or suspension worries as the Minstermen chase their first league win in 11 matches in front of an expected bumper crowd.
Matty Blair was switched from the wing to a more central midfield position in the midweek draw at Rotherham and rewarded his manager with his first goal since New Year's Day, so is likely to resume in that role.
Central defenders Chris Doig (ankle) and David McGurk (hamstring) both returned to training this week and could be included in the squad, while midfield pair John McReady and Lee Bullock are also hoping to be included.
But defender Jamal Fyfield is struggling with an ankle injury as Mills' side, four points above the bottom two, go in search of their first home win since a 3-0 success over Burton on New Year's Day.
Bradford goalkeeper Matt Duke will return to contention for the derby clash.
Duke missed the home draw with Dagenham in midweek as he served a one-game ban for his straight red card in Sunday's Capital One Cup final at Wembley.
Jon McLaughlin stepped in for Duke on Wednesday and manager Phil Parkinson must decide who to start with.
Parkinson has no new injury or suspension problems, but could be tempted to make several changes as his side chase only their second league win in seven matches.
Strikers James Hanson and Nahki Wells started on the substitutes' bench against Dagenham and will be hoping to return, as will midfielder Will Atkinson and defender Carl McHugh, who were also rested.
Central defenders Michael Nelson and Andrew Davies were back in the starting XI in midweek, with Rory McArdle switching to right-back.
The Bantams are 10 points adrift of the play-offs with three games in hand.
