Calvin Zola: Set to retain his starting place

Calvin Zola: Set to retain his starting place

Team news for Sunday's League Two play-off semi-final second leg between Burton Albion and Bradford at the Pirelli Stadium (kick-off 12pm).

Burton forward Calvin Zola is expected to be fit for the crunch encounter.

Zola, who struck two goals inside the first half an hour in the Brewers' 3-2 win at Valley Parade, was replaced by Billy Kee in the 67th minute and his fitness will be monitored.

Zola returned to the starting line-up as a lone striker and manager Gary Rowett could be tempted to recall Kee, Matthew Paterson or Michael Symes alongside him for the home leg.

Rowett has no other new selection worries, but is still without midfield pair Lee Bell, who sits out the third game of his four-match ban, and Jack Dyer (ankle ligaments).

Midfielder Adam Drury, on loan from Manchester City, and defender Aaron Webster are both in contention to return.

Bradford defender Andrew Davies will return to contention following his one-game suspension.

Davies missed the Bantams' 3-2 first-leg defeat at Valley Parade after being sent off in the last match of the regular season against Cheltenham.

Manager Phil Parkinson must decide whether to recall Davies to the starting line-up or stick with Rory McArdle and Michael Nelson in central defence.

Kyel Reid will continue to be monitored as he manages an on-going groin problem. The winger stepped off the substitutes' bench and played for just over half an hour in the first leg and suffered no initial reaction.

Parkinson, who has no other new injury or suspension problems, has the option of recalling the likes of midfielder Nathan Doyle, winger Zavon Hines and defender Carl McHugh, but is not expected to make too many changes as his side look to overturn a one-goal deficit.
