Bradford head to Rochdale on Tuesday night looking to bounce back from their first home defeat of the season when they lost to Port Vale on Saturday. Rochdale will be high in spirits though having inflicted defeat on top of the table Gillingham for the first time season themselves at the weekend.

Kevin McIntyre (suspension) can return for Rochdale after an appeal against a recent sending off was unsuccessful, so he sat out the weekend win. Peter Cavanagh (calf) has missed out the last four games and looks set to miss out again though.

Luke Watson (knee), Reece Gray (broken leg) and Matt Edwards (wrist) continue to be long-term absentees for the hosts.

Without any fresh injury, or suspension, concerns Bradford aren't in need of any imposed changes so are expected to keep the same side that lost at the weekend.

Ricky Ravenhill is looking to get into the starting XI for the first time this season but will probably have to settle for a place on the bench again, with Ritchie Jones (fitness) still not quite ready to be considered.
