Bradford striker Nahki Wells is hoping to overcome a groin strain in time to start against Gillingham.

The Bantams' leading goalscorer was forced off in last week's draw at Fleetwood but has allayed fears he is set for a spell on the sidelines and could continue alongside James Hanson.

Defender Rory McArdle is definitely out after twisting his ankle in the same match and will be having a scan to determine the full extent of the injury.

Teenage Australian full-back Curtis Good, on loan from Newcastle, is back in contention following illness and fellow defender Carl McHugh and winger Blair Turgott have returned unscathed from international duty with the Republic of Ireland Under-21s and England Under-19s respectively.

Defender Andrew Davies, sidelined since October with a knee injury, has returned to full training but is not yet match fit, while full-back James Meredith is recovering from glandular fever.
