Ex-Burnley striker Hines had to come off during the 2-1 victory over Accrington on Boxing Day after he was poked in the eye.
He was replaced on the stroke of half time by Wells, who only made the substitutes' bench due to an illness.
Bantams boss Phil Parkinson conceded the club's top scorer was introduced earlier than he wanted and it was, therefore, no surprise to see him replaced by Alan Connell, who ultimately scored the winner.
Parkinson's men have an impressive record at home, having won eight of their 12 clashes, while they have conceded just seven goals.
However, defenders Carl McHugh and Curtis Good, who missed the Stanley victory, could be absent again.
Good, like Wells, is troubled by illness, while McHugh is rated as extremely doubtful due to a calf strain.
