Gillingham v Bradford preview

Date published: Friday 10th April 2015 11:13

Gillingham have no fresh injury worries as they host Bradford looking for their first home win since Valentines’ Day.

Their 1-0 reverse to Fleetwood on Good Friday made it four matches without victory on home soil for Justin Edinburgh’s men but he could name an unchanged line-up with no injury or suspension worries following their 3-3 draw with Leyton Orient.

Cody McDonald was handed a start and responded with a double which means the striker is certain to keep his place.

And he is set to partner Luke Norris upfront against the Bantams.

Bradford defender Christopher Routis will miss out through suspension following his dismissal in Monday’s home defeat to Preston.

The versatile Frenchman had stepped in at centre-half as both Gary MacKenzie (ankle) and Andrew Davies (hamstring) missed out and boss Phil Parkinson is hoping at least one of the latter two can shake off injury.

Midfielder Andy Halliday (hamstring) remains doubtful after missing the last four matches, so teenager Dylan Mottley-Henry is hoping to retain his place in the squad after stepping off the bench for his first senior appearance against North End.

Winger Mark Yeates is nursing a troublesome shoulder but hopes to be involved as the Bantams bid for back-to-back away wins.
