Football - Duo could return for Bradford

Bradford winger Kyel Reid and defender Carl McHugh could return to the starting line-up for the first leg of the Capital One Cup semi-final against Aston Villa at Valley Parade.

Reid, who returned from a two-and-a-half week lay-off due to a groin injury in mid-December, has been used sparingly by manager Phil Parkinson in recent weeks, while McHugh returned to the substitutes' bench in Saturday's league defeat at Barnet following a calf strain.

Winger Garry Thompson remains sidelined with knee ligament damage and both striker James Hanson and Australian defender James Meredith are doubtful. Hanson sustained a knock at Barnet, so Alan Connell is on stand-by, and Meredith is still struggling with the after-effects of the virus that ruled him out at the weekend.
