Gary Bowyer facing selection decisions ahead of Bradford’s clash with Newport

Bradford boss Gary Bowyer has choices to make as his seventh-placed side face Newport in League Two on Saturday.

Bowyer included Jake Reeves and Chris Taylor in the team that drew at Macclesfield last weekend, with the former returning to league action following a 22-month injury lay-off and the latter making his full Bantams debut.

Both could feature again alongside Zeli Ismail and Dylan Connolly, who were also included at the weekend.

Jamie Devitt, Matty Palmer, Jordan Gibson and Clayton Donaldson are all sidelined with long-term injuries and will play no part.

Newport boss Michael Flynn will be hoping his injury troubles are easing after picking from a limited squad for the Exiles’ Trophy victory over Brighton Under-21s on Tuesday.

Mickey Demetriou, Daniel Leadbitter, Scot Bennett, Mark O’Brien, Robbie Willmott, Joss Labadie, Ade Azeez and Keanu Marsh-Brown all missed the fixture, while Corey Whitely was forced to leave the pitch due to injury.

Flynn is expecting Demetriou and Whitely to be available for Saturday’s League Two clash, however, as the duo have now rejoined training.

Kyle Howkins is unlikely to feature having suffered a head injury during the FA Cup clash against Maldon & Tiptree.
