Football - Bantams wait on duo

Bradford pair Mark Yeates and James Hanson are both injury doubts for the derby clash with Sheffield United.

PA Sport Report

Winger Yeates (knee) is battling to be fit to face his former club following a recent injection and striker Hanson is nursing a sore hand after fracturing a bone last week during training.

Manager Phil Parkinson told Press Association Sport: "James's hand is getting better all the time, we'll see how he feels about it nearer the time and Mark trained on Thursday. We shall have to see."

Otherwise, Parkinson is unlikely to make too many changes, if any, from the side that lost at Port Vale last week, with Kyel Reid and Raffaele De Vita pushing for recalls.
