Bantams looking to bounce back against Doncaster who have a growing injury list.
Despite McCall having such a wide range of attacking options, the Bradford boss will not be able to add Northern Irish international Shay McCartan to his arsenal. The former Burnley man is still out with a calf injury.
Timothee Dieng’s future, however, looks promising, the defensive midfielder is still ruled out with a calf problem but the left footer is expected to return to full training at some point next week.
Romain Vincelot is believed to be fit enough for the Yorkshire derby, even though the club captain has been carrying a minor knee problem in the last three games.
Goalkeeper Rouven Sattlemaier remains injured.
After the shock defeat Bantams strikers Charlie Wyke and Dominic Poleon will be looking for a recall to the starting line-up. Fans will hope the month ends with all 3 points.
Doncaster Rovers have had a bad run of form of late, losing four of their last 5 games.
Darren Ferguson’s side will be expecting a quick reaction come Saturday after losing to Shrewsbury Town in the midweek game.
It will be the second time Donny have played at Valley Parade this season, and the Rovers boss will be hoping for more of the same after his side won 3-2 in the Carabao Cup.
Ferguson has been hit hard with injuries so far, this season. Defenders Mathieu Baudry, Danny Andrew and Luke McCullough, plus striker Alex Kiwomya still out through injury.
Goalkeeper Ian Lawlor could also be added to that list, as the former Manchester City goalkeeper suffered an ankle injury in the closing stages of the Tuesday night game against the league leaders.
Lawlor’s injury may lead to back up goalkeeper Marko Marosi making his first appearance in the net this season.
