Bradford duo available for Oldham clash

Bradford have been boosted by the return of Sean Scannell and Shay McCartan as they search for their first Sky Bet League Two win of the season against Oldham.

The Bantams have scored just one goal in the their opening three matches of the season but winger Scannell is set to make his first league start of the campaign after playing 72 minutes in their 4-0 Carabao Cup defeat at Preston.

McCartan, who has yet to feature this term, is set to be in the squad on Saturday but may have to settle for a place on the bench.

Defender Paudie O’Connor made his first appearance in midweek and is in contention once again, with James Vaughan leading the attack after being rested against Preston. Defender Joe Riley has been ruled out for the season with a knee injury.

Oldham are looking to pick up their first points of the campaign when they travel to the Utilita Energy Stadium.

Gevaro Nepomuceno staked a claim for a starting place after grabbing the opening goal during Tuesday’s last-gasp 3-2 defeat at Blackburn in the Carabao Cup, having come off the bench in their first two league matches.

Former Manchester United winger Chris Eagles is still waiting for his first league start since joining the club, but is set to be on the bench alongside Mohamad Sylla.

Desire Segbe Azankpo is pushing for a place in the starting XI, which would be his first for the club, after impressing at Ewood Park in midweek.
