McArdle missed the midweek Capital One Cup defeat to Huddersfield in midweek when manager Phil Parkinson made plenty of changes and will not be rushed back unless he is 100% fit.

Parkinson has no new injury or suspension problems, but centre-half Luke Oliver (Achilles) is not yet ready to return from long-term injury and striker Andy Gray (broken arm) remains sidelined.

Strike pair Nahki Wells and James Hanson, skipper Gary Jones, winger Mark Yeates and defender Andrew Davies, rested due to a calf strain, are all expected to return to the starting line-up for the Bantams' first home game of the season.
