Bradford City winger Omar Daley is hoping to benefit from a free weekend by overcoming his ongoing hamstring problem.

The Bantams are without a fixture following their recent FA Cup exit at Colchester and Daley, in and out of the side due to injury all season, will welcome the break as he eases himself back into a more rigorous schedule.

City's assistant manager Wayne Jacobs, who explained why Daley started the midweek draw with Accrington on the bench, said: "Omar is one of those that haven't been playing a lot of games regularly all season.

"We didn't want to put him in a position where you might have to miss him again."
