Steve Tilson’s new-look Lincoln City side will be hoping to pick up their fourth win in a row as they travel to a Bradford City side without a win in their last five outings.
The two sides last met on New Year’s Day when the Imps suffered a 2-1 reverse at Sincil Bank.
The trip to Valley Parade could mark the debut of Congolese defender Patrick Kanyuka, who has received international clearance. Scott Kerr’s deadline day move to York City means that new man Ali Fuseini could make his City debut, whilst Scott Spencer will have to wait for his chance to impress after the partnership of Delroy Facey and Ashley Grimes in attack continues to bear fruit.
Clarke Keltie and Mustapha Carayol both remain sidelined, whilst keeper Joe Anyon may not travel after picking up an illness.
The Bantams sit just two places and three points above the Imps at 17th in League Two. But a 2-0 win will be enough to see Tilson’s men leapfrog the former Premier League side.
Peter Taylor’s team endured a miserable January, slipping from 10th and a possible play-off push to 17th, picking up just seven points in as many games along the way.
Taylor will have to do without Leon Osborne, who tore a hamstring in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Chesterfield. Jamaica international Omar Daley is likely to deputise. On-loan St Johnstone striker Scott Dobie could make his debut, whilst defender Simon Ramsden could return after a lengthy lay-off.
Kick off at Valley Parade is at 7.45 tonight.Tweet
