Bradford boss Simon Grayson considers his options ahead of Portsmouth clash

Bradford boss Simon Grayson must decide whether to make further changes for the home game against Portsmouth.

Grayson, who has won only one of his eight games in charge, responded to the recent 5-0 defeat at Blackpool by making five changes for last Thursday’s goalless home draw against Shrewsbury.

Striker Kai Bruenker will be hoping to keep his place after making his first start, while Timothee Dieng, Alex Gilliead, Nathaniel Knight-Percival and Tyrell Robinson could also feature after winning recalls.

Fit-again midfielder Matty Lund is pushing for his first appearance since the middle of last month but Romain Vincelot remains doubtful due to a knee injury sustained at Blackpool, so Tony McMahon is expected to retain the captain’s armband.

Portsmouth are expected to be without on-loan Tottenham defender Anton Walkes again after he missed the weekend draw at Plymouth due to a hamstring strain.

Stuart O’Keefe will resume in Walkes’ absence if he fails to make it, while midfielder Matty Kennedy is hoping to shake off the knock which kept him out.

Manager Kenny Jackett has not reported any new injury problems as his side bid to climb into the play-off places.

Midfielder Christian Oxlade-Chamberlain will not play again this season after breaking his leg during training last week.
