Ricky Ravenhill: Doubtful for Bantams

Ricky Ravenhill: Doubtful for Bantams

Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Bradford City and Bristol Rovers at Valley Parade.

Bradford midfielder Ricky Ravenhill is a major doubt.

Ravenhill sustained a shin injury in the midweek win over Wycombe and although X-rays later confirmed there is no fracture, he suffered heavy bruising and could miss out.

Nathan Doyle replaced Ravenhill on Tuesday night and is likely to return to the starting line-up if Ravenhill fails to make it.

Manager Phil Parkinson, who has no new injury or suspension worries, has been boosted by the availability of defender Carl McHugh, who has been allowed to join up with the Republic of Ireland Under-21s after the match.

Parkinson must decide whether to start with leading goalscorer Nahki Wells on the bench again, while fellow forward Alan Connell, defender Michael Nelson, McHugh, goalkeeper Matt Duke and midfielder Will Atkinson are all in contention as the Bantams chase back-to-back home wins in a bid to keep their outside play-off hopes alive.

Bristol Rovers are set to be boosted by the return of winger Joe Anyinsah.

The former Carlisle man has only played twice in March and has had to be taken off in the first half on both occasions with hamstring trouble.

But the 28-year-old has overcome that issue and is set to be available to feature.

That trip comes too soon for midfielder Oliver Norburn who is sidelined with an ankle injury which forced him out of the 2-0 win over Port Vale.

Rovers boss John Ward, whose side have won four of their last five league games, remains without long-term injury absentees Matt Gill, Matt Harrold and Scott Beaven.
